Alberta Plains

A couple of weeks ago I had an impromptu trip out to Alberta and while it definitely wasn't a photography trip, I did of course bring my camera along and had a little bit of time to myself. I toyed with the idea of finally stepping foot in Saskatchewan (one of the only provinces I've never been in), but instead I headed off to find some interesting things to photograph...  I think this shot is my favorite:


You can check out my new Alberta Plains gallery if you're interested in seeing a few more from my trip.  I actually enjoyed traveling around rural Alberta more than I thought I would have, I'll probably go back for more.  Not too sure what my photographer's assistant would think about that though.  Are there any nice beaches too go to?  ;)  Maybe I'll even make it out to Saskatchewan next time!

My First Publication

I must admit, I'm rather excited about this.. I've officially had my first photography publication, even better, my first cover!

Yippee!

The original picture is in my Death Valley Gallery.

Road Trip! (To Oregon)

I'm a couple weeks behind in posting this, but over the labour day long weekend my photographer's assistant and I headed south for an extended long weekend.  For my birthday I was given a photography workshop as a gift (more on that later), and the location was in Astoria, so we made a vacation out of it.



Over the course of six days we visited Portland, Astoria, Cannon Beach, and Seattle.  I was the first time as an adult that I'd visited the Oregon coast, I highly recommend it.  (No sales tax, yippee!)  Given it's so close to home it seems a little stupid that I haven't visited before.  I created a new Oregon Gallery where you can check out some of the pictures that I took.  (I need to figure out where to stick that picture of the Seattle Skyline.)
