Yet again, a photo of Horse Lake at sunset. Only this time I wanted to soften the image and instead of trying to blur the focus, I took advantage of camera shake. Just make sure the shutter speed is really slow and take an experimental approach.
Taken at sunset through layers of smoke from last summer’s forest fires. The ripples in the lake almost making it look as though the reeds are afire.
Normally, this would just be another sunset at the lake. However, this one is a result of fire and smoke from the Gustafson forest fire just outside 100 Mile House. It shows fire as an element currently out of control in the interior of British Columbia.
Took some convincing to stop Shiva from sticking her nose into the camera, but I kept at it until I could get full frame texture.
Despite the number of moose in the Cariboo, they tend to avoid inhabited areas where docks, boats and fences impede their passage. This one kept a sharp on on me as he transited by the shoreline.
Most times the cabins across the lake are hardly noticeable, but as the fog drifted lazily through the trees and over the water this one was framed momentarily by itself. Then just as quickly disappeared into a temporary non-existence.
Horse Lake in the Cariboo. Just when you’re expecting the worst but barely 20 minutes later the clouds had moved on leaving a star lit night. More black and white clouds at Sunday Stills.
With just a little tweaking, I tried to capture the spirit of Monet.
After deciding to post this photo taken at Horse Lake in the Cariboo a couple of years ago, I began to wonder how many photographs might be in existence. According to BuzzFeed, somewhere in the neighbourhood of 3.8 trillion and counting, so if I guessed about a billion sunsets stored in the cloud, I might be close. Pretty sure baby pics must top the list by a wide margin with sunrises and sunsets coming in the top ten. We must love the saturation of colour to keep snapping away at the same scenes night after night; but we just can’t stop looking for a super magical shot that will take everyone’s breath away.
