Sunsets are my favorite times of day, no matter the season. Summer ones are particularly wonderful, since the world is so colorful in itself and the warm glow of the setting sun makes the world looks so much more appealing.
I have been slacking. Mostly because .... I guess I'm lazy. I do have a backlog of images that are asking politely to be posted somewhere... maybe someone will like them? What if no one really cares? Will that have an impact? Should it have an impact? Should our creativity be influenced by someone liking or disliking or simply not caring about the images we create
It is not that long of a drive from Columbia Icefields to the famous Abraham Lake, and there is still a few nice spots to stop here and there. We were getting a bit tired by that time, during our May visit to the Rockies, but we could not resists those stops, even with a long way ahead of us.
Our spring adventure in the Rockies could not have been completed without a stop at Comumbia Icefields.
Wherever you go world always looks better with the sun hanging low above the horizon. Especially mountains seem to develop more texture and dimension.
It is a dangerous territory I wade in. As my wonderful wife, Kasia, blogs here, and reads my posts. She's also a photographer. This arrangement has a lot of pluses, like being able to bounce ideas off each other, or being able to just go shoot northern lights, at the spur of the moment at 2 am in the morning.
Spring in the Rockies can bring an unexpected weather. We left sunny Edmonton and were greeted with rain and snow when we approached the mountains. I don't complain when that happens, mostly, because the heavy sky adds to the moodiness of pictures and makes the view much more interesting than when skies are blue.
It's finally summer!! Most of our spring, this year, was rather dry. With the last couple of weeks we have finally started to get some rain, making all of us rather happy. For me it is time to watch the clouds.
Since Fuji did not have a lot of lens choices, I decided to try some of the old manual Pentax lenses I had. Did some research, found the adapters, and went to town. The problem became apparent quite quickly. There was no visual indication when things were in focus. Bugger!
