YYC Iron Horse

This cool horse is right in the middle of downtown here in Calgary. It is in this really cool city park that is attached to a train station. I don’t often find myself in this park, but every time I do I take a minute to admire the art.

A couple years ago I took another picture of one of these statues at night. You can see that picture here: Click Me!

Flashy Horse

rob moses exif data canon 6d 50mm 1.4I have wanted to shoot this photo for a while now. This little public park is at one of the train stations downtown. One day when I got off the train at this stop I was checking out these iron art pieces. The idea for this photo came to me soon after that visit. The reason it took me so long to get this shot is it was quite the production and a bit of hassle to get. I had to pack up my camera with a few different lenses (incase 50mm didn’t look right), flashes, flash triggers, 2 light stands and a tripod. As you can image, walking around with this much gear isn’t exactly a good time haha. Anyhow, I’m glad I finally got the shot, because it is exactly how I pictured it in my mind.

The set up for this shot was 2 Canon 580EX ii’s behind the horse. I set the flashes 2 stops over and shot the photo about 2 stops under.

I hit the streets on Saturday night and found my self at City Hall. I shot a few different photos before I wandered over to this horse statue. I though full body might be cool, but I decided to go for just the head and show more detail. Another plus for getting in closer is more bokeh!

As per usual these days I was shooting my Sony a7ii & an old 70’s Canon lens. This night I was using the Canon 50mm f/1.4 SSC. A wonderful lens, just like the current EF model.

A Friendly Walk

I shot this photo when I was out at a horse show here in Calgary not to long ago. This shot was rather random as I was just walking by and noticed this girl walking with her horse and snapped a quick one :).

Horse Jumping at Spruce Meadows

On Saturday afternoon a friend of mine and I went to check out the horse jumping show at Spruce Meadows here in Calgary. The show was being televised live on CBC television. We got there a bit late and were only around to see a small number of riders, but it was a really fun time. I’ll be heading to the next show for sure :). The big winner for the day was man by the name of Jaime Azcarraga and that was the only name I caught haha.

Heritage Park – Calgary

Today some family and I went on a little outing to Heritage Park here in Calgary. They got a bunch of old cars and gas pumps in one building and then in the actual park itself there is an old western style town with a train and a handful of old amusement park rides. I snapped a few pictures through out the day and thought I’d share them here. If you look closely you can catch a glimpse of me in a couple of the pictures 😉
