Late Winter Fields

Needless to say, there’s been a lot going on that has kept me from my regular photo habit.

image of winter field with bright sun shining through blotchy white cloudsI’ve still got a lot on my plate, but things are getting done and time is passing.

Spring will arrive soon. And after that, summer. It seems even then I will be posting only occasionally.

I hope when the fall comes ’round again, I’ll be back to my regularly scheduled photo posts.

In the mean time, I’ll keep sending out photos as best I can.

Going Down to Jackson Video and Portrait Special

Here it is!

My Going Down to Jackson video is being projected for two more nights in downtown Peterborough (time and location details available by following the link). But for those of you who can’t make it, here’s the video to watch in the comfort of your own home. Or wherever it is you happen to be while you’re watching it.

Enjoy! I certainly enjoyed making it. Read more “Going Down to Jackson Video and Portrait Special”

Landing, Hawk and Wooded Walk

flight01It was a hectic week in Vancouver for Dusk Dances. Between one thing and another it took some doing to get the week finished with style.

The flight home, however, was a treat.

flight03Once we were into Ontario the sun was going down between two layers of cloud cover.

As we approached the ground I had to put my camera away, but it was beautiful to see, from my window seat, the lights of Toronto coming on as the sun’s light was fading. Backyard parties, swimming pools, even the parking lots of strip malls looked magically illuminated in the fading sunset. And as we had to circle the airport to wait for our turn to land I got my eyes full of the wonder of seeing the earth from above.

This broad winged hawk, who gets to see the earth from above all the time, doesn’t need to signal to air control when he wants to take off or land. He’s cleared for pretty much anything he wants to do.

northern_green_woods02I’ve had a few opportunities to stroll through this plot of land with it’s mixed forest and rough cut paths and drives.

So refreshing to breathe this air. So good to hear the crunch of leaf mold underfoot. So excellent to have this day of rest before I launch into my four weeks of summer madness.

Dusk Dances starts in Peterborough next week, and Hamilton the week after. Come join us if you can.
