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!!
 

Only in Canada eh? Pity

Last night I was out at Moraine Lake in Banff National Park with some other photographer buddies. It was a great evening with a beautiful sky!

Since it is getting close to Canada’s 150th birthday I thought I would celebrate a bit early!

The Compositions of Mother Nature

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! 🙂

A Pretty Sunset

I spent the day out near St. Jacobs, Ontario driving around and photographing. On my way home, since it had been such a nice day, I decided to stop in at Cootes Bay and wait for sunset. As usual I was not disappointed!

Lonely Tree

I went for a walk this morning to Bayfront Park in Hamilton. It was a reasonably nice morning. Lots of birds were flying about and collecting food. During my walk I came across this lonely tree by itself and as I was snapping the shots, a couple of birds flew into the frame.
