What is …………….

Advertisements

I thought things were getting a bit mudane of late thought I’d change it up some what.So down South America way there’s this town called Ollyanta (locals), or Ollyantaytambo (touri) veritable mtb mecca …. my Guide Chet suggested we hit up some Inca ruins up high…. Olly’s at 10 grand so 14grand seemed like it might be a nice good view destination to bivy at. So it was decided open bivy up high in the southern Andes. We had to carry overnight packs while the horse led by two brothers 8 and 10 carried the bikes.Clear sky night at Minus 10C at night with lots of frost and mega stars … and the big dipper is turned around. What can I say the downhill was long and very cool. Ever Mountain bike Peru?? Just do it and bone up on yer Spanish.



The environmental portrait. What is photography. Photography is light and how it is rendered. Photography asks questions.

Like whats the story here. Look at the people look at the terrain. This was a small Dene aboriginal girl near the arctic circle.

It’s after 11pm the light “magic hour” the photographer’s cinematographers dream light exists for hours. The weather is harsh here its alpine and trees are small. We traveled by bike on this trip part of a compilation of stories we did on the yukon and adventure.

On this iron-worker I used fill to bring up the detail in the facial shadows.

Bit of a tricky shot to light top of highrise in a breeze we were (and gear) tied in.

Watch the condensation on Camera Gear reduce the differential of hot and cold on camera will fog lenses when moving to a warmer place in extreme cold do not breath on camera gear it will ice up. And sleep with batteries on overnight trips.

British Columbia fails to stop the Grizzly Bear hunt. It began on the weekend. Just as they are coming out of their dens after winter.

If you want it stopped write your MLA in Victoria BC Out of country people can do this to. A hardcopy letter is better than an email and a telephone message is better than a letter, do all 3 just let the powers that be (shutter…to think that these people do in fact have power over me arrggg) know that you do not support such atrocity.

Nothing like a tropic morns first light to work the angles. What drew me to this was the line of potted cactus around the rim of the pool.

Really like the ochre cast as it reflected the warm light. Everything is juxtaposed by the angularity of the structure. The frame of the cactus and the structure of the building itself.
The sky’s blue gives a nice edge contrast.
