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 the side of the hill and the cars, so it wasn’t to wild. Anyhow, I like spots like this because it is a view people don’t constantly see everyday, unless they drive over this bridge all the time or find themselves climbing around the sides of over passes 🙂

Sunburst City

I’m a sucker for a good sunburst and I’ll try to grab one whenever I can. The thing I really love about these pictures is that sunburst is the reflection of the sun off of a pretty cool looking building! If your a city guy (or girl) like me, then that’s what it’s all about ;).

Oh ya, and that dude that’s practicing his karate moves is hilarious! 🤣

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!

Heck of a Sunset

I was on my way home from a photo shoot last night and I could see a wicked sunset going down. It was a bit late and I wanted to get home, but I knew I would regret not stopping for one last picture. Am I ever glad I stopped, because it was one heck of sunset indeed! 🙂

Montana Signs

I love old signs like this! I think the “Sports Club” sign would be particularly awesome at night. Since I was only passing through this town (Shelby, MT) I didn’t have the opportunity to get a night shot of the sign. Even in the day light this sign still has a certain charm to it. Maybe next time I’m around I’ll plan to be passing through at night. 🙂

Guys on a Mountain

I was hiking up a mountain one day this past summer and I saw these guys sitting on the edge of a cliff having a nice little rest for them selves. I thought it looked like a moment, so I shot a quick photo. I really should have taken one of their emails so I could send them the picture. I know I’d like a picture of me and my buddy sitting on the side of a mountain! Maybe they’ll come across this blog randomly one day.

House Goals

I am sure I have said this before, but Spokane, Washington has some really wonderful houses! I saw this one while walking around the Browns Addition neighbourhood one summer day with my wife. Such a beautiful neighbourhood with so many nice houses. If your ever in the area be sure and take a stroll around there.

Urban Sun

I was downtown yesterday shooting some photos for a client. While I was down there I thought I’d grab a picture for you all too ;). The gigantic head on the right is actually quite big and it is lit up a night. The sun and sun reflection on the blue building make a fun addition to the photo.

Summer Night Selfie

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-ef-300mm-f2-8Not a proper selfie, but I did take this picture of myself :). I had been out shooting all night and thought before I packed it in I would jump in on a shot. To get the focus right, I propped my iPhone up on the 2X Extender I had with me with the “notes” app open for the white screen (as seen in the picture bellow). Once the phone was set, I ran back to my camera and auto focused on the phone and then set the lens to manual focus. I did a couple small adjustments, set the 10 second timer and ran back to my pre determined spot which was marked by my keys. I shot this photo about 4 or 5 times and it was easily the most fun I had all night!

Summer time in the city is always the best! This is especially true for Calgary. The air is warm and the city is alive, a perfect set up for good picture taking. I shot this one on Wednesday night from Scotsman Hill. I used my Sony a7ii and Nikkor 55mm f/2.8 micro manual focus lens.

Montana Sunset

rob moses exif data canon 6d 50mm 1.8I was down in Great Falls, Montana over the last weekend. I drove by this massive flag while I was there and knew I had to get a sunset shot with that flag. I would have liked to have also had the town in the picture, but I still like how this one looks.

Blue & Red

Sony a7ii & Canon FD 50mm 1.2

Everyone seems to shoot photos at this bridge in Calgary, and why not its beautiful! I have been here a bunch of times, but on this occasion I decided to stand balancing on the back part of one of the benches there to get a little extra hight. I shot this one handheld with my Sony a7ii & Canon FD 50mm f/1.2. I can’t remember my exact settings, I think I was shooting around f/5.6 or so. I have said this before, but the image stabilization on the a7ii is just wonderful.

Oh and that title! Well you know, blue night and a red bridge. 😉

Shiny Night

These buildings are super shiny! The reflections in these buildings windows gives a pretty cool effect. This part of town feels very modern and I love looking at the view with in the reflections. Pretty cool buildings on a pretty cool block! . . . This picture actually looks better in a larger size. I’d suggest clicking the one bellow to get a better look.

Oh and that 2nd picture, well I just tossed it in there for the hell of it. I took this picture on my way to the location with the shiny buildings. Just some girl waiting for the bus or something. 🙂
