Timelapse – Abandoned Ghost Town at Dorothy, Alberta

Posted by in Photography,Photography: Timelapse | July 24, 2013

Dorothy, Alberta… What can I say?! I’ve been here a few times in the past and it’s always been a great time. How was this trip different? Well there’s no better time to visit an abandoned ghost town then in the middle of the night, so that’s what we did! Making sure we made this trip different we didn’t arrive until 11:00pm, trying to sneak in and catch those “ghost’s” by surprise (more on that later). Instead of heading directly toward the abandoned church’s, we decided to work our way over. Starting at the old decrepit grain elevator I started my timelapse. What we thought was going to be a clear sky turned for the worse. I was lucky enough to capture some great storm clouds rolling in over the area.

Project Rocky Mountains – 2013 Adventure Guide

Posted by in Hiking | June 4, 2013

With a new summer season rapidly approaching it’s time to plan out my summer adventures, goals and expectations. First thing’s first, it’s the beginning of June and our spring has decided to finally make an appearance. I thought for sure our good old Canadian climate decided to skip this beautiful season but nope, It was just postponed by a month, it seams the month of May and beginning of June has been nothing but cloudy sky’s and rain. Don’t get me wrong, clouds and rain make for some very interesting and dramatic photographs. It’s just not the most appealing weather to go out and shoot in, very hard to get motivated.

Timelapse – Downtown Calgary at Sunset

Rotary Park Calgary Alberta - Downtown Skyline at Sunset

Experimenting was the sole purpose of this timelapse taken from Rotary Park in Calgary Alberta. Looking at downtown from the hillside was a great opportunity for me to practice my manual exposure ramping techniques over the sunset and the lights coming on in the downtown core. The results came out great and I managed to avoid the dreaded timelapse flicker (for the most part). I love all the lights dancing throughout the buildings. I can foresee a night-time excursion back to this location just to capture the dancing lights!

Jeff Rendek - Moose Mountain Summit, Kananaskis Alberta

Moose Mountain is located just about 14.5km west of Bragg Creek, Alberta. At it’s summit is Alberta’s highest fire lookout station that’s still manned all summer long. Don’t let the start of Moose Mountain hiking trail fool you, almost immediately you’ll start by descending into the valley for a kilometer, immediately followed by the start of the ascending slopes.

Astro Time-Lapse in Kananaskis Country, Alberta Canada

It’s the night of the Blue Moon and the sky’s clear overhead. Time to aim the camera upward, set the intervalometer and capture some great Astro Time-Lapse Photography in Kananaskis Country, Alberta. Here I was able to frame the shot nicely using a bank of tree’s formed in a horseshoe with the milky-way visible in-between. The blue moon provided a beautiful source of light on the surrounding tree’s.

A Storm On The Horizon

While out on adventure trying to photograph the 2012 Meteor shower on the outskirts of Calgary, Alberta. I instead stumbled upon some wicked storm clouds forming on the horizon. In this case, the horizon was directly over the S.W. / N.W. quadrants of Calgary. The result? Some pretty awesome photo opportunities and time-lapse photography work!

No Hunting - Prairie Landscape at Sunset. Calgary, Alberta

Eager to try out my new on-camera filter kit, I headed out towards the S.E. corner of Calgary. After taking a few gravel roads I stumbled upon this spot. I loved the majestic look of the scene. After trying a few different filters and compositions, I came out with the following keepers! I’m pretty happy with the results and look forward to using on-camera filters in the future. They give a nice punch to those sunset landscape pictures!
