Weekly Pics, 21 November 2010

Winter is here! Hope everyone likes snow cause we're getting lots today. Expect some snowy photos for next week. This will be my first year photographing snowy landscapes. I was in Afghanistan all last winter and the year before that I was on course in Ontario with no vehicle.

I'm really excited at the new photo opportunities that I will have this year. I always enjoy photographing new things, there's always something to learn. I think the highlight this winter will be my photography tour I have booked in the Canadian rockies with Darwin Wiggett next March. His work is very inspiring to me so it will be quite the experience to follow him around for a few days of all out photography.

So this weeks photos were taken at the Cold Lake marina. I got up way too early on saturday(5am) so I decided I may as well try and catch a sunrise. The sky was pretty clouded over so no colour that morning. Drove out to the Provincial Park to see if anything caught my eye and noticed the steam coming off the lake. Didn't find any spectacular compositions so I decided to see what the marina looked like with the steam rising from the lake. I think it was a good call. I really like the look of the frozen dock and the wall of steam in the distance. I actually had my tripod in the water for the second shot, it froze up pretty quick when I took it out. At least I didn't fall in, that would of been another Photography is Dangerous post, and we don't need that.
