Blackberries in November

Fall is not my favourite time. I’ve said this before. It is not the fault of Fall. Fall can be quite lovely, in fact. It’s just the forerunner of Winter. Winter and I do not get along. Setting aside my thoughts of impending Winter, I made my way outside to do a bit of fall…

Action Photography

Some highways are picturesque. Some are not. Sometimes you just have to wait out the boring bits, and then, a curve in the road reveals a stunning view. Or not. In any case, while on the road recently, miles away from home, travelling through the mountains and seeing only rocks and trees and construction for…

Risky scenery photography

Road trip time! Fall colours were in abundance, so my camera was at hand, ready to whip out at a moment’s notice. Hubby wasn’t keen on stopping every few minutes, or pulling over onto a shoulder while traffic whipped by, even for an AMAZING scenery photo, (I wonder why not?) so I had to be…

Step it up

One rainy day my daughter decided to go to the local recreation complex with the little ones for some toddler play/gym time. From the vehicle to the door of the building was a direct line. Did the girls want to go in a direct line? Of course not! Seen through the eyes of a two…

I scurried home, snatched up my camera and headed back to the roadway, crouched among the grasses and snapped away before the light shifted. I admit that fall is not…

Hand in Hand

This photo warms my heart. A golden Thanksgiving weekend walk in the park, Hubby aka Papa, hand in hand with our twin toddler grand-daughters. Strong hands reach down to grip chubby baby hands. Their trust in their Papa as they walk the unfamiliar path. He won’t let them stumble or fall, even though there are…

Fall is here

I have a favourite place to walk, a loop of about 2.4 miles, and on occasion I carry my camera with me. The great part about taking along my camera is that I focus more on the scenery around me. The not so great part about taking along my camera is that I don’t get…

Look up, way up

When certain kinds of trees grow for hundreds of years, they get very, very tall. So tall that you can barely even see the top, even when you crane your neck so far back that you almost fall over backwards. I recently had the opportunity to visit a grove of these ancient monuments on a…
