Climbing For Pictures

I shot this photo from kind of a weird spot. I was on the side of a busy off ramp from a bridge with no walking or biking path. I just climbed up the hill from under the bridge and shot my photos from the side of the street. Thankfully there is a barer between …

Back in Action

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 …

Calgary Shine

We 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 …

Not Quite Yet

Camera: Nikon D300s & AF 50mm 1.8 ~ Settings: f/18 – 1/160th – ISO 200 Just when you think winter is finally over, the weather gives you another blast to remind you where you live, Calgary! Every year I am fooled more than once into thinking the winter has ended, this year is no exception …

Calgary 1st

Camera: Nikon D300s & 70-210mm f/4-5.6D at 210mm ~ Settings: f/9 – 1/250th – ISO 800 I shot this photos the other day on my way home from work. It is a look down 1st Street SW downtown in Calgary. These types of pictures are always fun for me, because I love the city and …

The Train Over 10th

I was looking for a picture in my files this weekend and came across this picture. I totally forgot I even took it and can’t believe I didn’t rush to share it straight away, because I rather like this shot. It’s a nice view down 10th Street and it’s kind of cool with the train going …

Fall Was Nice

I’d say we had a pretty decent fall here in Calgary this year. The two prior falls I experienced in Calgary were a lot shorter and winter blasted in from out of no where. This year it kind of eased its way into winter and I was able to adapt and mentally prepare for the …

Sunset Over Calgary

I shot this on Tuesday evening off an overpass near my house. The previous day I was driving over said overpass at the exact same time I took this picture. As I crossed the overpass I saw right away what a great shot it could be, so I noted the time and came back the …

Train Into The City

I shot this photo last night from SAIT (a local college). I got there a bit early and tried a few shots while it was lighter out, but I knew waiting till the sun when down more would give a much better effect. Once the sun went down more I waited for a train to go …

Undercover in Calgary

On Saturday night a friend of mine and I went out to shoot some photos. It started ranging like crazy so we had to try to keep shooting under overpasses and covered areas, thankfully there are loads of these to choose from in Calgary. It eventually stopped raining, which allowed me to get the first …
