The Beauty of EVERY Season

For many years I would look forward to autumn here in Alberta.

The mountain parks would empty out. Splashes of gold and crimson contrasted with the blue bird skies.

No traffic was to be found on the highways. Everyone seemed to be back to school or work.

Then I fell in love with winter.

A clean white canvas that took on the colour and mood of the sky. Frost covered landscapes that looked like something from a fantasy movie.

Spring was always an in between season. Lots of browns and greys. Little to no foliage and the weather was boring.

And then, and then I discovered long exposure black and white photography. Previously unphotographable landscapes became works of beauty with seven minute long exposures. Tones of black, white and grey swirled across the sky.

Now we are in the middle of summer in Alberta. The crops are growing. The canola is golden. The skies are the most interesting of the year.

There is beauty to every season here in Alberta and where you live too.

Happy shooting,
