Even when I’m not contracted to do photography, I photograph.  And more often than any other subject matter, it’s the land I return to when I do that.  The northern landscape has always attracted me- the wide open space, the clean air and water, the smell of the pines. It just IS.  We are a part of nature, and it’s a part of us.  Countless studies have shown that connection with nature creates a better capacity to live well, although that has been abundantly clear to thinkers and dreamers for as long as we can imagine. It brings back a […]

This is one of several images I have here taken on long-gone Kodak Infrared film.  It always gave you a look and feel to an image that was very different from traditional materials,  and often times unexpected.  I still have a roll in my freezer.

I spent a few days of R&R on the Bruce Trail, and it yielded a clearer mind, a refreshed attitude, a blister on one heel, the knowledge that I need to lessen the weight of my pack, and this photo.  The photo will remain long after all the other lessons and experiences fade.  It was one those positive creative experiences where the photo seemed to almost find me, where the moment and feeling translated into an image without too much struggle.  And that is rare, and it’s the inexplicable part of what it is to take photos that hopefully matter.

I spent close to a week in Killarney the town, and the Provincial Park, shooting Google Street View virtual tours for a few businesses, then spending a few additional days in the park to relax and revisit some favourite locations.  It was the week leading into Thanksgiving and the weather was wonderful- still very summery- swimming was still enjoyable.  I had photographed this very shoreline from a canoe a few years prior, but only with a point-and-shoot camera, and I had it in my mind to revisit the spot armed with a more capable outfit.  The conditions were perfect, the […]

Killarney Provincial Park is a national treasure.  This particular morning I got up early and paddled across George Lake to a spot I had staked out, and I witnessed this beautiful soft, misty sunrise.  The clouds seemed to frame the sun and the composition came together without difficulty.  After experiences like this I always think to myself that I should get up early more often. Still working on that.

A slow November day and the promise of fog brought me to the Rockwood Conservation area for an afternoon, yielding a couple of my still-favourite images.  But my favourites change rather regularly, depending on which day you ask me.

I took this photo 20 steps from the front door of my place at the time.  It reminds me that I do not have to travel to be in an interesting place full of beauty.
