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 ;).

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. 🙂

Urban Geese

This is a photo from this past summer. I was making my way over the Centre Street Bridge to get some bridge shots. As I was getting a little closer to the water I noticed these two geese hanging out by the river. I slowly made my way over to them and tried not to make any sudden movements, as to not scare them off. To my surprise I got rather close and they didn’t seem to mind. Now getting a picture of them sharp was not easy. Clearly shooting a night photo like this I needed to shoot a long exposure, however the longer you leave the shutter open, the more chance of the geese moving and thus creating a blurry bird. I wanted to leave the shutter open just enough to show the movement in the water, but keep the birds sharp. To achieve this, I shot with a higher ISO so I could keep the exposure time down, however the geese would have to stay completely still while my shutter was open. Thankfully they felt like standing still for a moment and I just happened to take my picture then :).

Under the Centre Street Bridge

Sometimes you gotta climb around to the kind of picture you want. Like this one for instance, the tide was low on the river so I decided to climb under the bridge as far over as I could go with out getting wet. I shot a lot of photos this night and this was the very last one I took. I knew when I took this picture it was the only one I needed :).

Morning Moon

I took this picture about a week ago in Castlegar British Columbia. I was out for a little morning walk and randomly stopped to take this picture. It was only until I started to do a little edit on the photo till I noticed a little morning moon in the photo :). It’s not easy to spot in this small picture, but in the large version it’s easy to see.

Kal Lake

I shot this photo over the holidays in Vernon BC, Canada. My family and I went for a little walk down some train tracks and came across this little beach area down a small cliff. I shot a quick picture with my phone to test out the location and I liked the results (see Instagram pic here) so I came back another night when the water was more still. The picture didn’t turn out exactly how I had imagined. I was hoping the sky would have a little less clouds so the sunset light would have made it across the whole sky. Ah well, maybe next time :).
