Winter Tree of Life

If you frequent this blog, you’ll know that I found this amazing tree that I’ve called the “Tree of Life.” It has these long reaching branches that entwine and feel like they reach on forever. I love photographing this tree using the Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) technique because it adds movement to my…

Foley Mountain Winter Scenes

The views of our little town from the Foley Mountain lookout are enough to take your breath away. Westport has never looked so picturesque as it does when a light and fluffy snow has fallen over the town. The snow clings to everything it touches and the light bounces in every direction off of the white canvas.

Bedford Mills Winter Wonderland

Back when the snow was light, fluffy and new to the season, it looked so picturesque the way that it hung on the trees. I mean, who wouldn’t want to live in a country that had seasons that could produce these kinds of stunning landscapes? Eastern Ontario gets a lot of snow and so it’s the perfect place…

Perth Road Touring 02

It’s another weird day here today in Eastern Ontario. It’s like five degrees and the sun is trying to peak out of the clouds to give us some of that wonderful Vitamin D that we all crave during the winter. Yet, the school buses were cancelled (2nd day in a row) because of “treacherous” driving conditions this morning. I guess…

This is Forty

I cannot fathom how I’ve gone three months not writing single word or posting s single piece of work on this blog. It’s not like I haven’t been shooting, just not a lot of art was being produced. I’ve shot a bunch of family snapshots, which I’m glad I did but nothing that should (or will) be posted here. No…

Ninth Concession ICM 02

I love using the Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) technique along side a fogged lens, some double (and triple) exposures, and a lot of luck, to create something unique (at least to my eye)…

Foley Mountain Before the Storm

Standing on Foley Mountain watching a storm approach Westport was a sight to be seen. The heavy rain clouds I saw approach Bedford Mills earlier in the afternoon led me to believe there was a system of storms coming towards the area. While others might have said: “good time to hunker down and hide away…

RMG Exposed

I was feeling pretty good about the art that I was creating. Maybe a little too good. The Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa Ontario holds an annual event called RMG Exposed where they ask artists to submit works and then a jury of art influencers select pieces that will be sold in an art…

Wolfe Lake Rd ICM

Making progress with my photo impressionism. Driving down another local road, I found rolling hills and glowing fields of amber and orange from the late day sun. It was a perfect time to stop and not just admire the beauty, but interpret it in my own way. I love using movement in my photographs. It can not only be…
