We had the most amazing weekend weather and I had an opportunity to spend some time with these three lovely ladies. A extra little dose of summer right before days and days of grey and rain.

A Summer Reprise

We managed to get out for some gentle climbing yesterday for the first time in ages (due to my partners elbow injury). The weather was an incredible 25°  Celsius. It’s the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend and the entire long weekend the weather looks to be stellar. The fall colours are not as vibrant as some years but the tree canopy is still beautiful. Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians!

Portrait Mashup

Yesterday’s photo shoot was done under moody grey skies with a beautiful subject and a few brief seconds of sun. This can result in some really interesting lighting. Not as much sun as I would have liked but we are into the grey days of fall. Welcome to October.

Abstract Friday

I took these photographs yesterday after the morning rain.  I love the muted colours of fall foliage. The top three photographs were taken with a shallow depth of field and a gentle breeze blurring all but a few details.

Skeleton Trees

I used to drive by here often and always loved this landscape of  skeleton trees. They are mostly gone now. The road has grown wider and the trees were knocked down. I liked how at certain angles the trees stood in the field like Roman Numerals. They must have known their days were numbered…

I am always in awe when watching the migrating flocks of birds in the Fall. It amazes me how they seem to move as a single organic organism lifting and turning as though somehow connected. As if they are being directed by a conductor visible only to them. Moving like a breath across the sky.
