Dear Reader (2020-07-23),
That would be Joni Mitchell and a line from the song Coyote “A prisoner of the white lines on the freeway”. I’ve loved and kept that line for decades. Highway 40, the road to Lundbreck and back, is not really a freeway. It does though have white lines, expanses that nearly make me cry, and cows. As Corb Lund says “Everything is better with cows around”. On July 9th, I drove to Lundbreck Falls and pitched my tent at the Provincial Park for a night by the side of Crowsnest River. The following day I drove out to Coleman for a walk and then drove home. The whole trip was inspired by a photo of the falls I saw on Facebook.
The first post in this sequence is an exploration. So often I forget to adequately explore my subject. This was an opportunity to try out multiple ideas and perspectives during capture and post-production. Some of these images work and some not so much. I hope you find this collection at least mildly engaging.
The image with the water spots is what happens when you get too close to falling water. Furthermore, I had a polarizing filter on my lens which has since been replaced because moisture got trapped between the rotating components. I know, it’s an expensive photo and not particularly remarkable – ah well.
