What a glow of a sunset! The colour is such a brilliant deep-rich orange. Rebecca was lucky enough to see this unfold in Edmonton — we are lucky enough to see it now. The sky is clear except for a little wisp of a cloud on the left adding to this work of digital art. She was looking out the window in Edmonton and saw the path out back completely glowing, and knew she had to “take some shots”.
DID YOU KNOW? Sunrises and sunsets are a favorite for many photographers. Experts suggest you look for trees, rocks, or other structures when you are lining up your shot. Those items help frame your picture while adding perspective.

Go ask Alice, I think she’ll know. If you are over the age of 30 you might get the song reference,…if you do not – see the link below. Alice was in New Zealand just last month and shows us the Doubtful Sound in Fiordland National Park. So much to admire about this shot. Some people may write the pic off as just a stormy day – but there is so much going on. I see the wake behind the boat – the rain falling in the distance, the dark clouds fighting the urge to break up, and the tiniest sliver of sunlight on the water. Thanks Alice, now we all know.
DID YOU KNOW? This fiord is home to one of the southernmost population of bottlenose dolphins. Doubtful Sound was named ‘Doubtful Harbour’ in 1770 by Captain Cook. He did not enter the inlet because he wasn’t sure he could sail it. It was later renamed Doubtful Sound by whalers and sealers. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Go_Ask_Alice

I doubt Giselle and her husband KC were thinking of us at this moment,….but we sure are glad they thought of us when they got home. They were in Maui last month – taking a little vacay time away from Sylvan Lake. Here’s what Giselle has to say: “We love Hawaiian sunsets – in fact everyone stops whatever they are doing to watch the sunset, it is very spiritual for them”.
DID YOU KNOW? Hawaii is called the “Island of Flowers” and “The Pearl of the Pacific”. King Kamehameha was a great man in Hawaiian history. He unified the islands in 1795. Elvis also loved Hawaii, he shot 3 movies and a tv special there. The movies: Blue Hawaii, Girls Girls Girls, and Paradise Hawaiian Style.
WHETHER OR NOT YOU WENT TO A PLACE THAT REQUIRED YOUR GRASS SKIRT OR YOUR DOWN-FILLED JACKET, WE WANT TO SEE THE EVIDENCE. UPLOAD YOUR FRESH AIR PHOTO TODAY AND SEE IT ON BREAKFAST TELEVISION TOMORROW!
It doesn’t matter how many times I see a picture of the Northern Lights, or even when I am lucky enough to see them myself – I feel honoured, and feel like I’m seeing something mystical. Zoltan left the lights and sights of the city and came back with phenomenal images of the Auroras around February 15th. In his own words: ”You can never capture the same moment in time twice. The moment comes, and then it’s gone forever, unless you capture it in a photograph!” If you want to see more of Zoltan’s photographs – check out his website: www.infocusimagery.com. You’ll see why last summer, one of his pics was NASA’s Astronomy photograph of the day.
DID YOU KNOW? Our pretty little planet Earth has a magnetic field around it. The magnetism attracts magnetized objects. When solar winds bombard the Earth with ions, these charged particles move toward the magnetic poles. When these particles strike our atmosphere, they erupt in spectacular displays of light, the auroras! Who knew such beauty could come from gas??
IT’S A GAS HAVING YOUR PHOTO ON TV AND ON THIS VERY BLOG. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS HEAD BACK TO OUR MAIN WEBPAGE – FIND “CONNECT WITH BT” AND THEN “SEND US YOUR PHOTOS”. UPLOAD TODAY – SEE IT ON BT TOMORROW~!
Last Tuesday morning, Dryad took his favorite human Kim out for a walk — or should I say run! After all, this is the off leash area at Hermitage Park – one of the Shetland Sheepdog’s favorite places, in fact they walk every morning before work. Kim tells me she wasn’t expecting much, but always takes her camera with her–and of course we think that is AWESOME. She says she loves the early morning light for photos.
DID YOU KNOW? One of the great things about shooting a sunrise: not only do you see amazing colors in the sky in front of you, but if you look around, you can see how it casts a beautiful golden light around you, illuminating other objects to photograph. Here’s a helpful hint: if your camera has a flash, make sure it is turned off before photographing a sunset or sunrise, unless you want to try illuminating something in the near-foreground at the same time.
