Up close with the 'blue moon' last night.

Went to stretch my legs outside and saw the 'god rays' in the setting sky. Couldn't resist running inside to get the camera!
We spend far too much time at the computer now. The advent of digital photography has had major constraints on my ability to make new images, let alone time to market them. I have thousands upon thousands of images stored unprocessed on hard drives! I have even forgotten what I photographed 8 years ago when I switched to digital!

We had spent a long, arduous day hiking in the Killdeer Badlands, in the East Block of Grasslands National Park in Southwestern Saskatchewan. I, along with three of my colleagues - Dave Reede, Peter Blahut and Brad Smith - had enjoyed a pleasant day making images of this seldom visited park which is quite off the beaten path. It was a very hot, sunny day with temperatures above 30 degrees Celsius. Nearing sunset (and as the clouds rolled in), we dragged ourselves up the coulee after a grueling 15 to 20 kilometer hike.

I arrived at the Great Saskatchewan Sand Hills in mid afternoon. I walked about a couple of the dunes making images here and there. I returned to the van after a couple of hours to rest waiting for the evening light. Shortly after, clouds rolled in and it looked like it would not clear that evening. Still, I walked about an hour before sunset, waiting, hoping. Just before the sun would sink below the horizon, the clouds broke just enough to allow strong dramatic light to bathe the landscape
