Canada Post recently published my 'Double Rainbow' photograph as one of five stamps that comprised the 'Weather Series'. 'Double Rainbow' was created in St. Gedeon a few years ago as I was touring the Lac St. Jean area of Quebec. Driving through a rainstorm I noticed a rainbow forming and stopped on the side of the highway. It was still raining but, undeterred, I started shooting and made a series of a half dozen images. I later had to remove a couple of drops from the image that has fallen on the lens during the shoot.
The stamp series was released on June 18 following my Ontario book tour of 'Mike Grandmaison's Ontario'. I has previously been interviewed by The Weather Network and Canada Post. The other contributors to the 'Weather Series' stamp series were: Dave Reede (Lightning), Daryl Benson (Hoarfrost), Frank R. Reardon (Sundog) and Geoff Whiteway (Fog).
'Double Rainbow' was also used on the First Day Issue Cover, the Booklet and the Uncut Press Sheet which are also available for purchase. I have signed a number of First Day Issue Covers that have been sent to me by stamp collectors from Canada and the USA.

The Winter 2015 Issue (#32) of 'Outdoor Photography Canada' magazine is now available. It features my latest article entitled 'Quebec's North Shore'. In addition, the magazine highlights my image of the 'Wood Islands Back Range lighthouse' (PEI) on the cover.
On the winding, narrow highway that hugs the Gulf of St. Lawrence on the Gaspe Peninsula in Quebec flows this tall, narrow waterfall. I have photograhed it on many occasions but this time I converted this image of a detail of the fall into black & white.
In the latest issue of 'Outdoor Photography Canada' Magazine (Summer/Fall 2013), I illustrate an article and discuss some of my favorite lighthouses captured on the Canadian East Coast. I have been producing the feature 'Discovering Canada' every issue since its inception back in 2007. The magazine is available at your favorite newstand or through subscription.
