Tree Light

It was a beautiful spring day at High Park in Toronto yesterday, and there is one spot where the combination of the species of tree and the angle of the morning sun made for some great light.

Tree Details

There is a fascinating tree in the Beaches: bent, with fascinating textures. I have not been able to get a good full shot of the tree because of the background, so I need to focus on details. Both images created using Hasselblad 500C/M, 80mm Planar, TMax 400 film.

Framing Trees

Back to Lethbridge Alberta: I love frames within a photograph, and the way these trees on either side framed the more distant view was very appealing to me when I saw it.

The Silence of Snow and Ice

This image was taken in a park in Lethbridge, Alberta on a Sunday morning in my recent trip out west. The trees were covered in a frost from a combination of fog and very low temperatures. There was no wind, and the sky was softly overcast. The silence was lovely.

The Corridor

In Virgin Gorda we passed this stand of trees every day, and every day it caught my eye, as it seemed like a corridor in a cathedral. I took many pictures of it, and I think this is the one that best captures the impression it made on me. For this image I used my Mamiya medium format camera, 55 mm wide angle lens, and Ilford Delta 100 film.
