At one with nature, architecture

_E6A3351-EditAn interesting design element of the Qualico Family Centre at Winnipeg’s Assiniboine Park, is the tree growing through the exterior skylight.  The building also incorporates a living roof.


Icelandic Festival of Manitoba, Gimli


A few images from the Viking Village at the annual Icelandic Festival of Manitoba.  Last year I shot more of the Viking battle scenes, this year I made an effort to shoot the village. Because I arrived a bit late I choose my favourite camera lens combination, the Canon 5D Mark III and the 70-200 f/2.8L IS II and shot handheld.




Yellow-bellied Sapsucker on Maple tree


A yellow-bellied Sapsucker on a Maple.  I’ve been a little busy with some spring renovation projects as of late, unfortunately my photography has suffered and haven’t been able to post any new images as of late.   But here is a recent shot of a very cooperative woodpecker at 300MM on a full frame body with very little cropping required.

Duck Pond at night, Assiniboine Park


I’ve been making an effort to concentrate on photographing my own city and province after a few years of neglecting some of the great spots available.  The plan is to eventually release a book of Winnipeg or Manitoba images.  This is the recently redesigned Duck Pond in Assiniboine Park at night.  Soon to be a frozen ice skating surface.

Rainbow Falls, autumn, Whiteshell Provincial Park


Fall image of Rainbow Falls in Whiteshell Provincial Park, Manitoba, Canada.  This is a long exposure using an ND filter and polarizer to emphasize the whirlpool action of the water, and to eliminate the small group of people wading into the water on a very warm fall day.  Even with the long exposure I had to blend several images together to eliminate any sunbathers that didn’t move through the frame.  The temp. was in the upper 20’s celsius.
