Rocky Mountain Sun

I was out in Banff, Alberta this past weekend on a little family ski trip. The weather was pretty cold and it was snowing most of the time so I didn’t get a chance to take many pictures. I shot this photo on the day we left right before we headed home. The pictures from the ski hill are just some snaps I took with my GoPro.

His First Real Camera

I gave my 6 year old son Cameron his first real camera today. He had been asking me for one for the past 6 months and he was very clear he wanted one like mine with a proper viewfinder, so no point and shoots would do. I told him I would be keeping my eye out for a good deal on a camera for him and today was the day. Cameron is now the happy owner of a good old Canon 20D! A camera I have a lot of experience with, as I shot one for a very long time back in the 20D days. He loves the camera and I think it will suit him just fine while he dips his toes into the wonderful world of photography.

When I gave Cameron the camera he was super excited and happy! I quickly showed him the basics and he ran out the door to shoot photos. I caught up with him about 45 minutes later and he was still wondering around the block taking pictures. We passed by this tree and he ask me to hold his camera. He shot up the tree, I gave him is camera back and he started taking pictures of this dog that was sitting in the grass. I’d say he’s got the right idea about getting a unique shot. Who knows, we just might have another photographer in the family. 🙂

Penticton Creek

I just happened to be walking by this creek at just the right time it seemed. I saw the spot where I took this picture from the corner of my eye while I was walking by with my family. I told my family to keep going and I would catch up and ran over to the creek. I shot a few photos and just as I was about leave I saw this girl walking onto the bridge. I quickly whipped my camera back up and snapped the photo. It was a lucky break that she came walking along with her dog, because the photo with an empty bridge is just not the same.

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 ;).

Morning Sun

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-50mm-1-4I just caught the sun peaking over this massive mountain in Banff. Whenever I think of “The Rockies”, it’s a mountain exactly like this that comes to mind. Fun to catch it with the warm sun coming into the picture.

Enjoy The View

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-24-105mm-f4-isSometimes you just gotta have a seat and enjoy the beauty around you. When you’re in Lake Louise there is no shortage of places to do just that. I think this particular spot is definitely one of the best places to take it all in.

I didn’t know this guy, but I thought it was a good look the way he was sitting by the lake. I ran up behind him and shot about 5 photos. I was shooting at 24mm, so you can image how close I was to him. After I shot the first photo, he looked back at me and I shot my second frame. Clearly he didn’t mind because he just turned his head back and kept enjoying the view. 🙂

Starry Aurora Borealis

rob-moses-exif-data-canon-5d-mark-iii-16-35mm-f2-8-iiI shot this one a little while back and never did anything with the picture. I was looking for something to post on Instagram and thought this shot wasn’t have half bad. The colorful sky always makes for an interesting look.

Lighting

exif data rob moses canon 6d 300mm f:2.8Nature is awesome! Right before I took this picture I actually had my camera pointed in the opposite direction. I was shooting some photos of the Calgary skyline when I noticed some flashing going on behind me. Excited at the prospect of getting a lighting bolt picture I spun my camera around and started snapping. I love how the lighting was lighting up the clouds and sky around the immediate area. Nature can put on quite the show if you find yourself in the right place at the right time. 🙂

Lake Louise

exif data rob moses canon 6d 24-105mm ISMy family and I took a trip out to Lake Louise this past weekend. The weather was a little spotty and strange. One moment it would be raining, the next sunny and next again sun and rain! It never started pouring really hard, so that was nice. I spotted this canoe with a large Canadian flag on it and shot this photo. I wish the flag was a little more straight, but I guess like this it shows a little more realism. Anyhow, I thought the canoe and flag made for a nice foreground to the beautiful landscape in the back.

The Instagram picture is of my son shooting a photo on this hike we did. I took that picture with my iPhone and I really like how it turned out. Pretty easy to get a good shot out there I guess :).

Winter Wonderland

Sunset Sign

exif data rob moses sony a7ii 24-70mmI very quickly shot this photo as I was turning into Banff one evening. I had my camera sitting on my passenger seat and when I got to the turn, I checked to see if there was anyone coming behind me. It looked like I had the corner to my self for the time being, so I grabbed my camera and capped off a few shutter clicks before I saw someone coming up the ramp. Shooting so quick isn’t ideal, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do to get the shot :).
