Last weekend I had the pleasure of meeting up with fellow photographers Peter Carroll and Wayne Simpson for some shooting out in Kananaskis Country. With Peter being in from out of town for only a couple of days, and a really sketchy weather forecast, it was a bit of a challenging shoot to organize on short notice, but we eventually all landed in the same place for an evening of making photos. We met up at Spillway Lake where the evening light this time of year can be really nice and with a storm system on it’s way out of the area that day, we were optimistic that we’d get some interesting conditions as the sun made it’s way down.
Arriving early, we decided to use some time to both challenge ourselves and warm up a little by shooting some details images in a nearby pond. Each of us had commented that we’d seen this particular spot before and never successfully made an image there, so off we went to see what we could come up with. It was an interesting spot in which we all agreed there was something there to capture, but it was a very challenging scene to make sense of in a single photograph. This shot was my best attempt at it, and while I’m reasonably happy with the result, I do think there is more that could be done there. I’ll be curious to see what the other guys ended up with.
Thanks Pete and Wayne for a great evening!
