Continuing my journey through my photo archives, I found this shot of the valley next to our neighbourhood. This was taken in the early evening last February. I thought it lent itself well to a black and white conversion, giving it a bit of a moody feel.

As I continue to review and clean up my archives, I've been trying to conceptually group some photos together into some kind of common topic. For today's photos, I've grouped a number of cloudscapes I took at various times a couple of years ago. We really do get some great cloud shots here in Calgary.

Winter has finally made its presence known around here with our first big snowfall earlier this week. I haven't had much chance to go out and shoot, so here's a shot of some bare trees I took last winter at a snow covered soccer/baseball field. I like the silhouetting of the trees against the late evening sky.

Friday's Photo – Blue Chinook Arch

Today's photo comes from the archives from late last year. I was wandering through the neighbourhood one evening and noticed the interesting gap of sky between the clouds as the sun was setting. I would later learn that this is a typical formation from a chinook arch. This photo was taken in a future construction zone and the water you see is actually fairly shallow, as it is just a little flood of rain and/or melted snow in a few future house lots.

Friday's Photo – Power Lines and Street Lights

This week's photo is another shot of the sky shortly before sunset almost a year ago. This was among the batch of photos from my first month with my shiny new 7D. For this shot, I was hoping to get a nice view of the sky as it darkened, but being in the city, the power lines and street lights tend to get in the way. Also, I was out and about running errands, so I couldn't get to a spot with a clearer view. Instead, I opted to try silhouetting the lights and power lines against the sky. Looking back on this, I probably could have composed the shot a little better, but I still like how it turned out.
