Spokane River Warmth

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-24-70mm-l-f2-8I was kicking around the Spokane River this weekend. The weather was pretty warm and it made for a leisurely stroll around the river. I’m not sure what the temperature was, but it was warm enough that I wasn’t at all concerned about comfortably at any point. When you got November weather like that, it’s easy to hang out and take pictures all night long. 🙂

Big City Sky

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-70-200mm-f2-8-isIf your a photographer in Calgary and you didn’t make it out to shoot last night, you missed out! The sky was amazing at dusk and my good friend Nathan Somes and I were out there taking it all in. The idea to shoot was a bit of a last minute thing and we were racing out the door to make it before the sky went black on us. Clearly we made it, and just in the nick of time!

After we shot this location we went to shoot a couple more and we saw these people shooting off some little fireworks. I just happen to have my 2X extender on at the time and was able to grab a quick shot of that too! It was a good night to be out shooting photos. 🙂

No Option to Zoom

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-300mm-f2-8I love taking pictures of the city at night. When I went to shoot photos on this night I took only one lens, my Canon 300mm f/2.8. Sometimes I’ll leave the house with only one lens, because I find it forces me into photos I might not otherwise shoot. This shot is pretty tight in and I probably would have zoomed out a bit if I had the option. After looking at the pictures on my computer, I am glad the option to zoom out was unavailable, because I like the picture as it is.

Winter has hit a little early in Calgary this year! I decided to head out and take a look around the city last night and see how it looked. It was pretty foggy out and I think the fog really added something nice to the picture. It looks quiet to me, and it was. I guess everyone was inside trying to stay warm. 😉

Shiny & New

exif-data-rob-moses-sony-a850-minolta-100mm-f2-8-macroWe got a shiny new building (Brookfield Place) going up in Calgary and it’s almost done! The building is super bright right now compared to all the others. I am sure it won’t stay THAT bright, but I hope it still keeps some of that sparkly shine to it. 🙂

Well it’s that time of year again that all the hockey fans have been waiting for! The NHL preseason has started the real games are just around the corner. I am sure there are many fun nights in the near future for me in this building.

For the locals, I’m still peeved that Hartley‘s gone, but what are ya gonna do? Hope the Flames have a good year with the new guy.

My son Cameron and I took a walk to the store the other day and on our way there I shot this photo. I think next time I’ll bring a tripod and hop in the picture with him. 🙂

Secluded Peace

exif-data-rob-moses-photography-canon-5d-mark-iii-300mm-f2-8-lTaking pictures of a city a night has a special kind of magic to it. I find this especially true when you are in a dark and secluded place like I was for this shot. My location was completely quiet and I was very much alone. Peaceful, relaxing and exciting all at the same time. I love it. 🙂

Cancun Night

rob-mose-exif-data-canon-6d-70-200mmI shot this photo from the balcony of my hotel room in Cancun, Mexico this past winter. Most of the resorts were down the street and around the corner. This area had a more authentic feel to it, which I like. 🇲🇽 😀

Calgary Shine

rob moses exif data sony a7ii 70-200mm OSS f4 GWe got some shiny buildings over here in Calgary. I like taking pictures from this side of town because when the sun sets you get this beautiful light hitting the buildings. I also timed out this shot so I would have lights from the cars and the train going by at the same time. I think the lights add a lot to the picture. The nice splash of colorful action at the bottom really rounds out the frame.

Surprise Fireworks

exif data rob moses sony a7ii 70-200mm OSS f4 GI was out shooting the Calgary skyline last night when all of a sudden I noticed some fireworks popping off in the distance! Unfortunately the longest lens I had with me (and only lens) was my 70-200mm. With some extreme cropping, all turned out just fine haha.

Summer time in the city is always the best! This is especially true for Calgary. The air is warm and the city is alive, a perfect set up for good picture taking. I shot this one on Wednesday night from Scotsman Hill. I used my Sony a7ii and Nikkor 55mm f/2.8 micro manual focus lens.

City School

exif data rob moses canon 6d 70-200mm f4 isI love old schools like the one in this picture. It is a perfect example of what comes to my mind when I think of a big old elementary school. The location of this school is just wonderful. Having the Portland skyline as a backdrop to this beautiful old building makes for good picture.

If anyone is interested, this school was originally called “Failing Elementary School”. The school named after former Portland Mayor Josiah Failing. The building is currently occupied by the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM).
