Foggy morning, Assiniboine Park, Winnipeg

Foggy morning in Assiniboine Park, definitely one of my favourite times to shoot, and one that inspires the creation of black and white images.

Still deciding on this one, may leave the colour version intact.

Duck Pond at night, Assiniboine Park

_E6A0027-Edit

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.

A short visit to the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden, Assiniboine Park

The pond at the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden in Winnipeg’s Assiniboine Park.  I’m fortunate to live nearby and visit the park often.  It’s a great place for a variety of photography with the English Gardens, duck pond, and zoo also located in the park.  It’s also a favourite for our two dogs Fergus and Angus.

Anatomy of a pink flower, macro

Who doesn’t appreciate a flower image.  Here is one from spring 2013 shot at Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg, using a Canon 100mm Macro hand held and cropped slightly for a symmetrical composition.  I’m too lazy to research the flower type at the moment, so I apologize for not including the species.

Finally back up and running after taking December off, for a full system upgrade.  I’m not a technology chaser, but after 5+ years with my old and ever slowing system I made the leap to Lightroom 4 and Photoshop Cs6 along with a faster system.
