Was I fascinated by this structure at the local mall, only because I was going to see the new Captain America movie? You be the judge...

There is virtually no bad time to visit the Canadian Rockies, but the season of Fall is one of my favorite times to explore the region with my camera. I've just posted dates for my 2014 small group photo tour: 5 nights and 6 days in David Thompson Country and the Rockies, a fun-filled and intensive field event.

My theory is that Casper the Friendly ghost got bored with his digs in Casper, Wyoming and flew up to visit Banff and Jasper for a change of pace. Beautiful image, Royce.

When you chase the light sometimes you catch it, and other times it catches you. A sunset last year in Snæfellsnes, Iceland...

HDR photo technique is often written off by people who prefer a more realistic look to their photos, thinking that HDR can only produce surrealistic images that look more like illustrations of some kind. Well, I use HDR extensively in my work and most often keep the balance of the final look towards photorealism... but with a dash of creative license. :) These are just a couple of examples. If you'd like to learn to apply HDR in both incredible landscape settings as well as an amazing heritage industrial location, I'll be a guest instructor at a fun and challenging workshop this coming May in David Thompson Country. I invite you to click through the link for more details... a few spaces are still open. http://blog.vividaspectphoto.com/2014/01/08/may-2014-hdr-photography-workshop-coal-mines-canyons-and-the-canadian-rockies/

My friends +Brad Allen and +Gail Foster are putting on a unique culture / landscape photography workshop this coming May 4 in the Calgary area. In addition to picturesque countryside around the grounds of the Leighton Art Centre, with views towards the Rockies, participants will be able to photograph Blackfoot elders presenting ceremonies, stories and dance from their history. If you're into environmental portraiture, cultural photography, landscapes or even just looking for something different to try with your camera, click through the link and check out this event.

Something to do when it's raining in Reykjavik, and you don't feel like leaving the guesthouse...

Thanks for commenting, +Thomas Robbins. People have told me they see musical shapes in this, and also the suggestion of a figure. I like the fact that it's a literal thing that's also abstract enough to be suggestive of other things... :)

And here is the blue hour view of Mt. Rundle, at Two Jack Lake, near Banff... this time in monochrome.

Thanks +Mike Matenkosky. I admit I'm partial to the B&W version, myself. :)
