Switching Positions

My 8 year old son Joshua is in his 4th year of playing hockey. Joshua has been talking about wanting to play goalie for the last couple years and has progressively become more and more interested in the position. Over the last couple of months it had become clear to me that my sons heart was set on becoming a goalie. Anytime he has free time to spend on the computer or his iPad he is watching goalie videos on YouTube. I bought him a street hockey goalie set for his net in the basement and he asks me to play with him down there everyday as soon as I walk through the door. My wife and I talked it over and came to the conclusion that there was no question, Joshua wanted to be a goalie.

Joshua plays at the Novice (Mites in the US) level and at this level of hockey the kids just rotate the goalie position. Next year Joshua will be moving up the Atom level and it is there that teams have full-time goalies. So with that in mind we decided to get him his goalie gear early and get him practicing up for next years try outs. Yesterday Joshua had his first chance to try out his new gear in a game and I am happy to report it went great! A lot of good saves went down, but more importantly my son’s dream of becoming a goalie has come true and he’s happy.

Cammy Hockey

My 6 year old son has started playing hockey this year. Well it’s more of a hockey camp, but it’s the first time he’s been on a proper rink with all the gear. He’s been hanging around the rink watching his older brother Joshua play for the past few years and he finally decided he wanted to give it a go. Yesterday was his second day on the ice and he loves it!

Note: I shot all these photos through the thick (puck scuffed) plexiglass, so the images aren’t as sharp and bang on as they would otherwise be.

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!

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.

Starry Aurora Borealis

Lake of the Stars

rob moses Canon 5D mark iii 3 16-35mm exif data

Last thursday night I took a little trip to the mountains in and effort to escape the city lights. With me being an urban type of guy, this is some what out of character for me. However, I do enjoy a bit of fresh air and a starry sky from time to time and I have a friend who is all about this type of thing. I gave my friend a call and we hit the road.

After shooting a number of shots from above a little cliff and then in the other direction all together, I decided to try getting some shots down by the lake. I had a square shaped LED flashlight with me and decided to try to see how it would look pointed at my back. I was happy with the first few attempts, but I knew I needed something just a little extra. I thought a little light on the water and in the trees would be just right, so I waited. . . And waited and waited until a I could hear a car approaching. I had the camera on a 10 second timer and a 13 second exposure, so I had hit it just at the right time for me to get the light where I wanted it. Lucky for me my estimation was about right and the light landed right where I wanted it too! That bit of light didn’t exactly make the photo, but it sure helped and was worth the wait.

Starry Sky in BC

Rob Moses exif data Sony A7R 16mm fisheye converter

I was in Revelstoke, British Columbia a couple of weeks ago and shot this photo of the night sky. Revelstoke is a small town with out a lot of light pollution, which makes for getting shots of the stars nice and easy. At first I was walking over to a location by the river, but when I when I saw this break in the trees and houses I thought it would make a better picture to have something in for foreground. The contrast of the bright yellow house seemed like a nice fit to me.
