Lake Louise

Sunrise at Lake Louise during the week we were up there pretty much looked like the above, very cloudy and overcast like skiesSo I tried to crop the sky out as much as possible and focus on the foreground and glacier water of the lake.  What a wonderful place to be at the break of day!

Vermillion Lakes

This was a beautiful reflecting lake just outside of Banff.  We spent most of one evening just hanging out here enjoying the scenery.  The only negative were the mosquitoes that also loved to hang around this spot. But trading a few bites for a few pics seemed worth it to me.

The Canadian Rockies

After ignoring my photo blog for several months, I have found a little time to process a few pics from my August trip to the Canadian Rockies. The one I will share today is from one of the many glacier fed rivers in Banff National Park.  If I don't get side-tracked I will post some more over the next few days.  As always, your comments are welcome.  Thanks.

Magnolia Cemetery

This old Oak has stood guard in this old cemetery in Charleston for many a year.  Imagine how it would look in the dark of night.  It's branches might reach out and grab you!

Vanishing into the Oaks

On the way in to Botany Bay there is this long dirt road guarded by all of these oak trees.  I thought a nice subject for B&W.

Tree in the Water

Just a little ways outside of Charleston was Botany Bay.  A very interesting beach where the ocean has eroded the beach and when the tide is up it covers the bases of some of the old dead trees.

The Ravenel Bridge

One of the fun things we did in Charleston was to experiment with some isolated pics of the Ravenel Bridge.  The one above was taken after sunset with the background sky showing the last little bit of sunlight.

For this one, we hiked up onto the bridge about a quarter mile and shot upward into the details of the bridge structure.

A Different Take

Here's a slightly different composition from the same scene from the previous blog post.  What do you think?  Which one do you like the best?

Soft Reflections

Again at the beautiful Magnolia Gardens, saw these azalea's reflecting in the water creating an interesting pattern.

Magnolia Gardens

Visited Magnolia Gardens in Charleston and found it looking like this.  It was downright gorgeous!  The azalea's were at their peak.

Here's an example of "If it's red, shoot it".   Nothing like red to draw the eye.  Of course it doesn't hurt to make everything else black & white.
