A series of images made while on a paddling trip on a section of the beautiful and storied rivière Coulonge, Quebec. Technically these photographs are quite ‘low quality’ but somehow I feel they hint at expressing some of those stories of the rivers’ past.

Long exposures of fast-moving water at night. These photographs were made during a paddling/camping trip and although there were lots of stars in the inky sky there was no glowing moon, so in order to light the first and last images I ‘painted’ the slipping-by water with my headlamp and set the camera to make 30 second exposures. In the middle image you can see my paddling friends are lighting the rapids (and the fluttery bugs) with their own headlamps.
(Unfortunately, I didn’t have the camera set to raw mode when I made these photographs – poorly planned on my part – so the image quality is not that great…)
