Today’s post isn’t strictly photography. But it is still visual. I recently acquired a GoPro for an upcoming trip and took it out for a test run this week. This is just some footage of me & the dogs in the backyard. I hope to have more from this wonderful device in the future. Anyone who’s not sure about what a GoPro is, can check them out here: http://gopro.com/
The new job is keeping me pretty busy these days. Not so much going on photo-wise. Hopefully that will change soon. The deer are starting to come out of hiding near our place. And the geese are arriving by the hundreds. This week’s feature is a shot of the creek bank near our house, where some deer had been sleeping recently:
I have a busy week ahead, full of shoots each day. Which means more eye candy for all of you eventually!
I just wanted to make a quick announcement: I have a just made a fresh batch of photo greeting cards! They are blank on the inside, with one of 13 fabulous (if I do say so myself, and I do!!) images from yours truly at keyFOTO on the front. They also come with a set of blank, self adhering envelopes. You can purchase a set a 10 for $20, or set of 5 for $10 (not including shipping – if you need a shipping quote please send me an email, or use the contact page on the keyFOTO website. For local customers I can deliver them to you personally!
Kinda glad I took this week’s photo during the week when it was a little cooler. *whew* it’s hot out there. Just a little photo, showing how the crops out our way our doing. The canola across the street is in it’s full bloom. I really liked the crop pattern in this field.
The photo I am sharing today is from a few weeks ago, there was a wicked harvest-like sunset. One of those huge orange suns, with that haze & glow when it sets. I was in the yard with the dogs and saw that all the dandelion heads were glowing from the colour in the sunset. I snapped a few, and here’s one:
Took this last weekend. Sometimes I really love living where I do. I don’t think I could go back to living in the city. Happy Fathers Day to all the Dad’s out there.
As promised I have 2 more photos from that wonderful sunset rainstorm. These photos are taken 180° from the other two, with the first photo showcasing the double rainbow. The second ‘bow is pretty faint, but look closely, it’s there. The other photo for today is of a farmer’s field that was flooded out, the sun had all but dissappeared, and just left a streak of light on the wheat in the distance. I thought the sky and the golden wheat made for an odd, but great contrasting pair. Enjoy!
Agh. I really suck (for lack of a better word) at this posting on a Thursday thing. So, in an effort to preserve my timely posting efforts, I will be switching my post date to Sunday. This should hopefully stick. Sorry for the lack of a post earlier this week. But I swear I will be on time from now on!
Last Saturday there was a rainstorm during sunset, and I had a fabulous time shooting in the rain. I had been working on my computer, and happened to look out the window when I saw this awesome light from the sunset with this dark, stormy sky. So I forwent my dry comfortable abode for a windy, cold, rainy 5 minute photo shoot. I will have the other part of these storm photos next week. But these two are my favourites from the spontaneous shoot.
Another week has passed, just as busy as the last!
Each evening I decided to take photos, something either came up, I had plans or the weather was uncooperative. So tonight I finally got to taking some photos of our yard with the flood waters. I want to do more, but the light wasn’t that great (of course it clouds over the sunset just as I am taking photos).
The water has gone down some, but you can still see that the field behind our house is a lake, and you can’t tell where our pond starts or ends.
Have a great weekend!
It’s been a busy week, and I forgot to post on Thursday. I apoligize!
Here are some more flood photos, though! I took these last week on the way to my parents’ place in Ste.Agathe for dinner. It still looks like this, but a bit more flooded. The river is supposed to crest in St.Adolphe this weekend. We put up the cross braces last weekend, but decided that due to lack of water in our area, we would not put up the plywood. So far it is okay. Our pond is now half our yard; not so great for the dogs, but the ducks love it.
