Happy 150th Birthday Canada!

Several years ago I started a project I called “Imagine”. The purpose of this project was to entice Canadians to see more of Canada by showing them images of some of the beautiful places in Canada and asking them to “Imagine” what it would be like if they were standing in that spot. I have always thought that so many Canadians tend to travel to the Caribbean, or to Mexico or the US instead of staying here in our incredibly beautiful county. There is so much to see and do in this country and yet so few Canadians actually “see” it.
 
In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday I have put together a video of images I have taken across Canada. I hope you enjoy these images and that you can visit some of the stunning places that these images come from.
 
Happy 150th Birthday Canada!!

Inspiration over Information

Of course, there will always be those who look only at technique, who ask ‘how,’ while others of a more curious nature will ask ‘why.’ Personally, I have always preferred inspiration to information.’

Just imagine…

It was a very windy and snowy morning in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I was sitting at the airport waiting for my flight to Moncton, New Brunswick and took this shot of the Air Canada jet coming into the terminal. It kind of looks like the jet is going to drive right into a snowbank!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I am in Halifax, Nova Scotia for a couple of days having arrived here very early this morning in a snow storm. Later on in the day it warmed up and the rain started along with the fog. This is a shot of downtown Halifax from the balcony of my hotel room in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

I headed to the airport outside of Halifax this morning and I took the long way since I had some time. I stopped alongside Lake Thomas as I saw some of these eagles soaring majestically around. This guy landed on a rock and posed for me!

I went for a drive this morning before going to work and since it was the wrong time of day to photograph the iconic Peggys Cove lighthouse, and since I have photographed it before I decided on the fishing boats in the actual hamlet of Peggys Cove.

Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia

Peggy’s Cove located about 40 minutes by car from Halifax, Nova Scotia, is one of Canada’s iconic and most photographed spots. You might think it would be the ideal “sunrise” location being near the Atlantic Ocean and all, but it actually faces more west. So the image below was shot at sunset.
