Join me this coming Wednesday evening, January 21, 2015 in the library of Acadia Junior High School, 175 Killarney in Winnipeg, Manitoba for my second presentation of 2015. The evening starts at 7:30 PM.
My presentation is called 'MEDITATIONS'. I originally presented MEDITATIONS in Regina, SK last November at the 2014 'Frame By Frame' Photography Seminar and I have been asked to repeat the same presentation in Winnipeg. Accompanied by recent images, I will share my thoughts and reflections on the Natural World.
If you are not a camera club member but would like to attend, simply let me know and I will admit you as one of my SPECIAL guests! Hope to see you there!

'Frame by Frame' Photography Conference, hosted by the Regina Shutterbugs, happens in Regina, SK this coming weekend, November 1 and 2, 2014. On Saturday, I will be presenting 'Meditations' , my reflections on the natural world. I will be in the company of some great photographers and friends. I am particularly looking forward to seeing Freeman Patterson's presentation on 'Embracing Creation', based on his new book and retrospective exhibition of the same name that came out last fall. Freeman is arguably Canada's finest photographic artist. Unfortunately I couldn't make it to the launch of 'Embracing Creation' because of prior commitments so I will be savoring the images on Sunday. I purchased a copy of the book the first day it was released as I just couldn't wait. I am also looking forward to seeing the works of Dennis Fast, Mufty Mathewson, Larry Easton and more!
One of the images I will be presenting is 'Milky Way', created at Klotz Lake in northern Ontario a few weeks ago. My friend and colleague, Peter Blahut, had stopped on the shores of this lake just after the sun had sunk below the horizon. We decided to make a few images of the Milky Way that was beginning to emerge through the darkening sky. As time wore on, we began to notice a tinge of northern light activity until it became quite pronounced and is seen here as a 'green glow' throughout much of the image. I made three relatively quick exposures of the Milky Way, taking care to include some overlap so that I could stitch a panorama as the final image. The night sky is just so inspiring, mysterious and too often overlooked.
