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.
I have been spending a few days in the Faroe Islands. If you don’t know where that is, use Google Maps! 🙂 The weather has been truly dramatic. Never have I seen the weather change so quickly and the such incredible skies every few minutes!
This is the village of Gasadalur. This shot was taken between winds howling at 30+ km/h, driving rain and sleet and, well sunshine! 🙂
Happy Canada Day! Canada is 148 years young today and as beautiful as ever! As a nation we have a lot to be proud of in this country. As hard as our politicians try to destroy this amazing country, everyday Canadians pick up the pieces and rebuild it. I have been fortunate to visit every province but 1 and one of the 3 territories. The Yukon is on my list in 2016! I have also been fortunate to visit many beautiful places around the world, but every time I return to Canada, I say to myself “Canada is still my favourite country in the world!”
Here are some of my favourite images from across Canada!
(BTW…I am behind a couple of days on my LTTL project and I will catch up)
Was in Niagara Falls this afternoon for a couple of hours. It was a hot and humid afternoon, with lots of people at the falls. I did not feel overly creative today so this is just a standard shot of the mighty Niagara taken with my iPhone.
Today I taught my Digital Photography For Beginners course and I had an awesome group of people! They had a lot of fun and took some great images! For the field section of the day we ventured out on a rather chilly afternoon to Tiffany Falls just outside of Ancaster. It is a beautiful waterfall and has lots of potential to create great images.
This afternoon after work, even though there was a light drizzle I grabbed the camera bag and the tripod and headed out for a hike along the Chedoke Trail. The colours are amazing and just being out in nature was so good for the soul. This is one of the many waterfalls along the trail.
