Time Will Tell

Aerial photographs of the earth abstracted below reveal the indelible passage of time. Some textures and formations have taken millennia to emerge through forces of nature, and some have been more recently caused by human activity; all speak to a landscape that does not soon forget its experiences.  I have begun to gather these visualContinue reading “Time Will Tell”

Summer Prairie Skies

The sky is bigger on the prairie, and the sunsets some of the most gorgeous I have ever seen; constantly shifting weather, swirling clouds, and a golden hour that lasts forever… As I spend more time travelling across Saskatchewan and Manitoba my library of spectacularly surreal sunsets will continue to grow – find them allContinue reading “Summer Prairie Skies”

Sunset on the Manitoba Prairie

It was a long journey, to arrive in this beautiful, pastoral scene. This image is from last summer, shot from the window of our car as my husband and I sped along country highways to a cozy cottage in the Manitoba forest. Having spent over 10 years living a nearly idyllic life on the coastContinue reading “Sunset on the Manitoba Prairie”

Winter Solstice

“This is the solstice, the still point, of the sun, its cusp and midnight, the year’s threshold and unlocking, where the past lets go of and becomes the future; the place of caught breath…” – Margaret Atwood, Eating Fire: Selected Poetry 1965-1995

One rainy night I joined a few friends to explore the lovely homes and government buildings that are lovingly restored and maintained as striking architecturalContinue reading “Christmas, Historic Adobes | Monterey, California”

Masdevallia Orchid Pair

Many years ago, in the milder climate of coastal California, I fell in love with orchids. It started innocently enough with the gift of a Phalaenopsis or two, and after finding them relatively easy to care for I began to explore the wider world of Orchidaceae. Along the California coast there are many orchid growers, andContinue reading “Masdevallia Orchid Pair”

Back to the basics

I was recently challenged to a ‘7 Days, 7 Black & White Photos’ exercise on social media. My path in photography started with black and white film, yet now it is usually an afterthought and simply a processing choice in the digital darkroom. Shooting with black and white in mind is always a welcome returnContinue reading “Back to the basics”

Tandem

As the daughter of a pilot, it is nearly impossible for me not to look up when I hear airplane engines rumbling through the sky.  These two planes passed overhead while I was on a recent travel photography expedition, and while I only had a split second to catch them from my spot on theContinue reading “Tandem”
