I’m sure most of us have weeks that don’t go as planned. Disappointments, problems, stress are quite familiar to most of us and we all have different ways of dealing with them. For me, the best way to handle things like that is to go out of the city and spend a couple of hours shooting.
The summer is in full swing now. We are all enjoying wonderful colors surrounding us wherever we go. I still remember, though, all the spring months, when I was impatiently awaiting this to happen. Being short of time, I really appreciated the rare moments when we could escape the city for a couple of hours and visit Elk Island National Park
Over the years we have travelled a few times to Alberta badlands. It is always an interesting trip. The landscape is so different there, comparing to the standard prairies / Rockies and there is always an abundance of photographic subjects. From out-of-this-world rock formations to interesting flora, patterns on the ground, carved by water flowing down after the rains, people, animals... If you are lucky, the sky cooperates
The last part of the record of our photographic one day journey has all to do with being inspired by just one mountain. It is one of my favorites in all of Rockies (that I have seen so far, of course). It is so full of colors, with a pleasing shape, always great to photograph, no matter the time of year.
have said it before and, I'm going to say it again. There is nothing better than looking at some colorful macros when it's freezing cold outside, days are short and the world is covered in white. I think, considering how cold it has been so far on the prairies, that we all deserve a bit of color therapy.
