Autumn Colors of Kelowna

The leaves are changing colors in Kelowna. I took a drive up Knox mountain yesterday to get a view of the city and see what kind pictures I could get. I met another nice photographer up there and got a couple good shots, so it was a good evening to be out exploring my new …

Downtown Bear

There is this beautiful bear art piece downtown in Kelowna. When I set up to shoot this photo the clouds had just covered the moon. I knew the moon was going to be a big part of this shot so I sat and waited for about 15 minutes for the clouds to pass by enough …

Pandosy Night

I recently moved to Kelowna, BC! I am originally from Vancouver (well sort of, I’m kind of from a lot places but that’s another story. Vancouver is where I spent most of my life). So moving back to BC from Alberta was a long time coming and my family and I couldn’t be happier. With …

Westy by the Water

It’s pretty easy to get a good picture driving around Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. I pulled off here for a few shots and took so many pictures. I tried a bunch of different angles and most them looked pretty good to me. This shot in particular I felt showed the backdrop quite nicely …

Taking Pictures

I shot this photo last night here in Calgary, Alberta. It was super cold and when I went out to shoot photos this wasn’t the idea I had. I was shooting a completely different photo before and then I ended up at this bench. When I first arrived at the bench I was trying shots …

Sunset End

I just caught the end of this sunset a few days ago on my way home from work. While I was driving I could see the amazing light shining on the buildings downtown. Unfortunately the traffic was moving slower than I would have liked and I wasn’t in a good area for a  decent shot. …

Calgary Sunrise

On Wednesday morning I was driving my children to school and enjoying this amazing sunrise. After I dropped the kids off I stopped at this city look out a few blocks from my house. I didn’t have my camera with me so I just shot this photo with my phone. I think the saying is …

Friendly Goats

I posted this picture and some others to my Westfalia blog. I really like this picture so I though I’d also post it here :). If you want to see a couple more pictures of these goats swing by, (letsgowestfalia.wordpress.com). Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Bridgeland

This is a not so common view of part of my neighbourhood where I live in Calgary. I shot this photo with a 300mm lens, so the compression kind of makes everything seem rather close together. Anyhow, if you know the area it’s probably more interesting to you, but if you don’t I still think …

Autumn in Calgary

I shot this photo a few weeks ago and wasn’t going to share it because I thought it would make a better night shot. Then I figured there is no reason to not share both. I took this picture from the parking garage of a local college (SAIT). I was looking for portrait locations and …

Selfie On a Ledge

I was out taking pictures on the weekend and I was setting up for a shot of the city. While I was deciding where to shoot from I noticed this little ledge off the balcony I was standing on. The ledge looked easy enough to get onto so I thought I might as well hop …

An Old Friend

This is a dear old friend of mine from back in the day! Her name is Geraldine and we used to kick around Vancouver together. Sadly we have both since moved on to different cities. As you probably know I am in Calgary and Geraldine is surprisingly not far off up in Edmonton! Anyhow, we …

4 Brands, 1 Photo

I was just doing some example shots to show how the Pentax-A 50mm 1.7 performs on my Fujifilm X-Pro1. I kind of like the picture, so I thought I might as well share it. The camera in the picture is my Sony a7ii with a Canon 16-35mm f2.8 ii attached with a Metabones adapter. It …
