Turquoise Blue

Summer will soon be here and I look forward to exploring western Canada and taking some images with my camera. The beautiful turquoise blue colour of this glacial lake in the Canadian Rockies is caused by the refraction of light off the rock flour which is deposited on a continual basis. I was fortunate to be there very early in the morning last summer.

Tree Silhouette

As a photographer I’m visually drawn to silhouettes. This is an object or scene that is backlit, and appears dark against a lighter background. This time of year many of the trees don’t have leaves on them yet and I find beauty in the way the branches are reaching out towards the sun. In the second image, if you look closely, the tree branches appear to be reaching for the planet Jupiter which is visible in the western sky right after sunset.
