I’m the King of the World!!!! Well, Not really!! Simply having fun here taking long exposures at night. This was taken at around 11:30PM on the night of the full moon at Lake Louise. Sometimes it can be lots of fun to try things not knowing what the outcome will be. I had a great time with my good friend Milton Sanderson trying all sorts of things..I knew I wouldn’t get any masterpieces but ended up with great memories which is just as good if not better.
Here is a shot taken from my last trip in the amazing Faroe Islands. This is literally a “Hidden World” everyone should have the chance to see at least once in their life. Shooting in the Faroes was definitely not easy. The weather can change rapidly (cold, high winds, rain, snow) but this often create spectacular lighting perfect for landscape photography…Well that’s if you are lucky enough to capture it without having you lens covered in raindrops or snowflakes. I don’t normally include human elements on most of my images but here, I think the road added a sense of scale and helps transport the viewer to this wonderful location. I would like to thank Súsanna Sørensen once again for giving me the opportunity to visit this incredible place..These are memories I will cherish forever.
This was taken early morning…My initial plan was to shoot the famous Lake Louise but due to the thick heavy fog that was covering the entire area that morning, I could hardly see in front of me. So, instead, I decided to venture in the forest nearby and was amazed by the beauty I was witnessing…It literally seemed like scenes from Narnia. The early snowfall added just the right touch to this already beautiful location.
Our world is such a beautiful place, we are often so preoccupied with our daily lives that we completely forget to stop for a moment, look and appreciate how lucky we are to live on such an amazing planet.
Just came back from Banff, Alberta..Definitely needed to jump back into action. I have been away for far too long but really needed the time off to reevaluate everything in my life. I have been thru a lot in the past year and I would like to take the opportunity to personally thank Milton Sanderson for always believing in me no matter what. I also would like to thank everyone that has been sending me private messages and emails for the past year..your concerns and encouragements kept the flame alive at all times and they really meant the world to me. Sometimes the absence of light is a necessary thing in order to come back stronger and really appreciate things you took for granted..So for now, let’s just say that I had “The Artist’s Block”.. Makes me feel better about myself.
Back to the Picture: I know that Moraine lake is an iconic place that has been shot over and over again but I sincerely don’t think you can visit this area without trying to capture it. Being in front of such beauty felt like someone just injected a mega dose of adrenaline in my veins..The name I gave it has several meaning..”The Awakening” can mean “The Dawn of A New Day” but for me it truly means being awakened from being in a Walking Dead state back into life!!! Glad to be back!
Terribly Sorry for not being active lately, I promise to be back full force in September. I was busy with various projects and home renovations. One of these great project is, me getting involve with Stranger in the Night 8, A Great Charity
