I've been meaning to take this shot ever since Kath and Bono and I moved into our new home down at Departure Bay. And the neighbours thoughtfully moored their boats in just the perfect spots too!
To be honest, I could not even tell you what the technical definition of fine art landscape photography is! But as a concept I guess it is what I aim for in my landscape photography. This is a recent post sunset image from Beachcomber Park in Nanoose Bay. It is a hand-held 3 image bracketed HDR shot that was processed in Lightroom CC, and Photoshop CC with some sprinkles of Nik and Topaz Clarity thrown in for good measure.
I did something the other day I haven't done for years. I had noticed a LOT of bee activity on some of the flowers in our yard so I stuck my Sigma 150mm macro lens on the old 7D Mark II and went out to try my hand at capturing the little guys in flight. Man that was a challenge for the old hand-eye coordination! Here are my 2 favourite images!
I went up to Parksville to photograph the Canada Day Fireworks. What had been a reasonably nice day turned into a cold, howling windstorm with some precipitation thrown in for good measure! About half the crowd left before the fireworks and those that stayed were huddled under blankets and umbrellas and whatever other shelter they could find. I only took 6 or so images before I simply surrendered and turned my camera off and watched the show with everyone else. Talk about a fair weather photographer!
