Berlin’s traffic in motion

I stopped under a railway overpass to photograph a small piece of the morning commute in Berlin.  It was interesting to see and compare the vehicles on a German roadway with what I’m used to at home in Calgary.

I have a lot of fun photographing things in motion and the half hour I spent on this street just outside of downtown was no exception.  Playing with the shutter speed to isolate subjects as they speed by is a good challenge and can make for strong, dynamic images.  Here then are a few more from that session beside the road.

Tonquin Valley: Heading into the backcountry for a week

This photograph was from yesterday on my walk through downtown.  The last one for a week as I’m heading up for a photography tour along the Rockies between Jasper and Banff.  I’ve been invited by Art Wolfe to join him and a small group for the week as a photo guide.  The first destination is the Tonquin Valley – we horseback ride in tomorrow morning – today is the travel day up to Jasper.  Can’t wait to meet everyone and get the trip rolling.

I’ll be offline for most of the trip but it will be fun sharing the photographs I come back.

A big thanks to Bobbi and my kids for supporting my photography and holding down the fort while I’m away.
