Cold Kal Lake

exif-data-rob-moses-sony-a7ii-55mm-1-8-zeissKal Lake in Vernon, BC is awesome! I spend more time there in the summer than the winter and when I am there in the winter I don’t usually get out for too many photos. Thing is, I’m not all that into winter, so getting out that door with my camera is a bit of a struggle. Thankfully my kids pretty much dragged me out the door on this day and I figured I’d be crazy if I didn’t bring my camera along. The weather wasn’t exactly at it’s best, but it had a calm to it that I think I captured in the photo. Right after this shot that calm ended pretty quick when my kids started tossing the biggest rocks they could find into the lake ;).

Snowy Landscape

Anytime I get out in the mountains for some photos it’s a good time. This day was particularly beautiful. The right combination of bright light and clean snow makes for a good landscape view.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Years! I was away visiting family over the holidays and never found myself in front of a computer, hence the lack of posts over the past week or so. Anyhow, I’m back in Calgary and it’s freezing as usual, so here’s a shot I took downtown of some cold buildings on your average deep freeze night in Calgary. 🙂

Stay Warm! Rob

Night of Mountains

exif data rob moses 6D 70-200mm f:2.8 IS 2X iiThese mountains kind of came out of nowhere for me. At the time, I was just trying to get some shots of downtown. After I had all the shots I wanted I decided to point my camera in another direction just to see what I might get. To my surprise the mountains were clearly visible in the photo! It was so dark at the time I couldn’t really even see them with my eyes. You could barely make out a mountain outline if you looked really hard, but just looking in the direction the scene looked black behind the buildings. It was a nice little surprise and I’m happy I pointed my camera that way.

So Cold in Calgary

exif data rob moses canon 6d 50mm 1.4I took this picture just over a week ago. It was a pretty cold night and rather late when I decided to head out. Even though I wore the appropriate layers, an extremely warm winter jacket, winter hat and 2 pairs of gloves, it was still freezing! I believe the temperature was around 0 degrees! (-18C). It does get even colder than that from time to time here in Calgary, but there was very cool wind that night too, so I didn’t last very long out there. I shot this photo and about 4 other frames and then packed it in haha. I didn’t even think I got anything decent and didn’t end up looking at the pictures until this weekend when I downloaded some other photos I shot. This one seemed alright and I put it on my Facebook page, so I thought I’d put it here too :).

Frosty Climb City

exif data Canon 5D mark iii 70-200mm Rob MosesI had to climb a pretty big fence for this shot. I had driven by this location a long time ago and thought I might be able to get a good shot if I was to climb up the fence. I just happen to be driving near that location again today and I thought with all the frost on the trees and the clear sky, it might be worth trying out. I’m glad I made the stop, because I love a picture with buildings mountains together :).

If you check out this link by around 11:30am on Sunday you can watch the Periscope video of me climbing haha. Climbing Periscope Video

Cold Calgary Street

I shot this one last night from the top of a parking garage. I just set my camera the corner of ledge on a 2 second timer and let it go. It was pretty cold last night, so I didn’t spend too much time up there. It wasn’t long after I shot this photo that I headed home for the warmth my car and then better yet, my house! 🙂

Rings of Fire

canon 50d tamron 17-50mm vc rob moses exif dataLast night my friend Nathan and I took the Skipping Stone Bridge in Calgary with a chain and some steel wool. Nathan had wanted to shoot some of these type of photos for about a year and we finally decided to get out and do it. We would both set up our cameras and get our setting and composition the way we wanted, then Nathan would get in position, light the thing on fire and let er rip! On the first attempt the baking whisk that was holding the steel wool flew off the chain almost immediately and flew over the side of the bridge! haha. Luckily the whisk landed on the shore and not into the river. After a quick retrieval mission, the fun times were back on. 🙂

The Minion Tourist

rob moses exif data Canon 50D Tamron 17-50mm VCI don’t know about you, but I like these little Minions! This little toy belongs to my son and I thought it would be a fun picture to take as if the Minion was a tourist haha. The 2nd shot of him was from inside my car. The Minion was standing on the edge of the passenger side door and there is a tree with lights behind him.

Buildings Over Here

rob moses exif data Canon 50D Tamron 17-50mm VCI usually shoot photos of Calgary from the other side of town, because I think it looks nicer over there. From time to time I feel the need to shake things up a bit, so I grabbed this shot from the south side on my way home yesterday.

Bit Of A Challenge

Camera: Canon 6D & 70-200mm f/2.8 at 200mm ~ Settings: f/11 – 1/320th – ISO 400

So the other day fellow photographer and blogger Steve Boer (www.steveboer.com) passed on 5 day black and white photo challenge to me. The idea is to post black and white photos for 5 days straight. I love black and white, but there aint no way I’m posting 5 black and white shots back to back haha. So I told him I’d post one for one day and that’s the best could do. However, I decided to post 2 (on one day).

With all that said, onto the pictures. These two photos were clearly shot on different days. The first one was shot on a more mild day and the 2nd one a much more cold day (yesterday). You could probably guess from the snow on the ground and the guys ski goggles! lol. This is how I feel about biking, if it’s so cold you gotta strap on the ol ski goggles to take a cruise, then it’s to damn cold for biking! ;).

PS, Although these types of challenges are fun, I probably won’t make a habit of doing them when passed on to me. Just an FYI so I don’t hurt anyones feeling in the future.
