A hockey night in Calgary

I found this ice rink in a park near Marda Loop.  There were a few people playing hockey under the night lights.  I stopped for a few minutes to play with the patterns of the trees and lights against the rink.  I loved the setting and that everyone was out to enjoy this most traditional of Canadian pastimes.

Late Spring Runoff at Elbow Falls

I went out for a photo shoot of the Elbow Falls in Kananaskis, Alberta with a couple of fellow photographers last week.  The flow of the water and the textures created by the currents and the rocks were mesmerizing.

The river is still rising from the spring runoff from the snow. Spring was late and so is the peak of the high water from the melting snow and ice in the mountains. The flow is very different from the rest of the seasons. The waterfall is engulfed right now so that the normal lip is overrun. This creates a very different face for the falls which is great to explore with a camera. Here are a few from the edge and around.

As night took hold, blue colors were accentuated creating a cool, dreamy feeling to the long exposure images.  This is one of my last from the evening.
