Having gone on a long overdue vacation to the jungles of central america, I had brought a fairly light kit with me including my 11-16 DX Tokina.
I am not a huge HDR fan but for some of the jungle shots I had tried to get the 3 exposure shots and here are the results. Enjoy these while I work on the Faces of Central America collection … coming soon!
Oh yeah the below pictures are pretty big so give them a second to load!
Wanted to share this picture and the story #Vancouver BC, and the Lions Gate Bridge (in the background) is in a haze. Smoke from forest fires burning around British Columbia filled the coastal areas. Heroes, the firefighters, volunteers and tree fellers, are fighting the blazes around the province (and world wide) protecting and saving lives, homes, and keeping us safe – this has been one of the driest seasons on record and thus far over 800 fires have sprung up around the province.
I have been invited to a new project called Undefined Video (www.undefinedvideo.com) where we will post random videos of random people doing random stuff. And not just people! For example, here is me messing around with a 50mm ais 1.4 handheld and my d300s filming BABY GEESE!
On Saturday Morning this long weekend I had ventured out to Iona for an early morning hunt and shoot. The Iona Beach Park opens at 8 am, so being early means you have to wait in the car as there is no where to really park outside the park (park your car that is ).
Within the park the number of ducks and waterfowl has decreased from the winter months when migratory birds come to visit the Lower Mainland, but the park is alive, from insects buzzing, to baby geese chasing them and nibbling on grass and swallows and goldfinches flying through the air singing and chirping.
Here is a quick part one of the life i saw in the park, these are mainly insects.
Also check out the link to Sean M – he was doing some amazing macro photography of bugs at the park as well – (his flickr link ). Always a pleasure to meet a great photographer!
Downtown Vancouver, while everyone was happily getting ready to watch Game of Thrones there was a shoot happening. Cobalt Crew and thats all that I could find out, no one would say what the shoot was about. It was on Pender and Thurlow with lots of CA Police and News.
I got two shots off before the staff sternly warned me off. Looks like a zombie apocalypse Fear the Walking Dead.
Took some pictures while on a hike in Squamish British Columbia last weekend. The view from Chiefs’ first peak was quite amazing of the valley below to the north, and to the south was Howe Sound. Truly truly beautiful.
Here is a shot of Mount Garibaldi which is to the north of the Chief. I used my 18-200 mm lens and focused on infinity. I did do some post production because of the ultraviolet light was very bright in sunshine and because I did not have any filters with me.
How about some more pictures from my phone too. And just below is the super large picture if you want it for a wallpaper.
Hastings and Seymour corner has the Grant Thornton Place which features a dome-covered open-air plaza at the northwest corner of Hastings and Seymour streets. Which has a very neat acoustic property which allows this musician who I snapped with a 50mm on my D300s while he was jamming. A single speaker on a strap with a battery and his guitar and the dome is filled with sound.
Over at the Lonsdale Quay as seagull had picked up a starfish and half eaten it with still pulsing tentacles hanging from its mouth. This can definitely be a type of a science fiction or a fantasy monster a bird with tentacles! 🙂
