Thin Line Photos Aren’t So Easy

Dear Reader,

On Thursday I visited the same site a third or may be it was a fourth time. The result is the first of today’s photo. One of the surprising things about having a particular image structure in mind is that those structures are harder to find and capture than I would have initially thought. After all how hard is it to find a relatively common set of elements properly lit? Guess what? It’s not that easy, and more often than not more than one visit is required. It’s a good thing I enjoy the process. Speaking of which, yesterday I spent a couple of hours out driving on a new set of roads between here (yyc) and Drumheller. Actually, when I left the house around 10:00, April said I’ll see you around 5:00. She was right, I arrived home shortly before 5:00.

The remaining photos in today’s collection are ones I like but do not make criteria for the Thin Line Series , which has bee updated accordingly, along with the Love This Land page.

I will share more in the coming days or so.

Fruits of Reconnaissance 02

Dear Reader,

Well, besides the thrill and entertainment of going on reconnaissance, the other purpose is to find places to return to. SE of Gleichen there is a wonderful tree. When I found it around 5 days ago, the light was poor. This morning I woke while the stars were still out and went for a drive. I got my new favourite tree in this morning’s early light. There were 2 minutes when the sun was just cresting the hill behind me and giving a warm glow. By the time I had clicked the shutter a dozen times, danced the jig of the morning photographer, sol was veiled in a morning band of cloud. The photo is better than the one from earlier this week but I think there is still a better capture possible. I am always amazed at how the right light can be so fleeting.

I have seen this hotel before, from the main road, and thought it make a worthy night shot. Today I stopped. This morning’s hazy pale light I think suits the scene. The
third photo is a new contribution to “The Thin Line” series from this morning.

Another day and more green highlighter on the paper map. All and all a good morning.

Cheers, Sean
