Here is my BLOG on my various adventures. I'm fortunate to live in a country (Canada) where our backyards are all close to incredible natural areas. My backyard is the Rocky Mountains, and my original home is Vancouver Island - so I've explored and enjoyed mostly along the western part of North America.

Of course, this isn't the only place I want to explore! The east, the north, the south - wherever I am, I plan to visit and see as much as I can. The world is amazing - places, people, nature.

This is the BLOG where I talk about that.

Taking my time – long-exposure photos

A misty, smooth, peaceful scene of water against rock has always been one of my favourite scenic images to view. There is something serene in how the scene slows the motion of the water and captures not the image exactly as it was, but captures it as it was felt.

However, when I was younger – taking long-exposure images was not something I learned to do. It required trial-and-error which was far more expensive in the years of film photography. This has changed as I became a digital photographer. Especially when I discovered LEE Filters and their range of ND Filters. 10-stop, 6-stop, and (to a lesser extent) grad filters.

I’ve taken these filters with me on my adventures and tried to capture a few images. It will be fun to learn more.
