For the most part, I am not a “rules” kind of photographer. Could care less about them to be honest. Whatever makes me happy I shoot and I process. I don’t care if the image is technically perfect or it falls within the rule of thirds or any of the other so called rules. But when Mother Nature creates these beautiful compositions and they just happen to cover basically ever composition, lets call them “guidelines” out there well who am I to argue! 🙂
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. I have found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
Back in October 2015, my family and I visited New York City. It had been over 30 years since I was there and a lot has certainly changed. It is a vibrant, and busy city with no lack of interesting places to visit.
Late this afternoon I was in Banff for a quick visit. One of my stops is always the Vermilion Lakes right outside of the town of Banff. These lakes always provide a great foreground for the beautiful Mount Rundle in the distance. Today was no exception as I found a piece of open water right at the edge of one of the lakes. However my perfect reflection was difficult to achieve as I was suffering from a unusual ailment of “Muskrat Interruptus”. This little Muskrat was constantly swimming back and forth in the small open water and carrying pieces of grass. After a while I think he was playing a game with me as he would wait until his last ripples from his previous swim were almost gone and then off he would go again! 🙂
