I went for a bike ride today, down to the research station and back. While I was at the station I snapped a shot of the moon above a row of pines.
My nephew Isaac was in town this weekend for a volleyball tournament. I went over to the gym today and got a few photos of him in action.
This past Saturday, the sky was clear and the auroral forecast looked promising, so I drove out to a dark spot to check out out. The aurora, if it was there at all, was a very faint smear at the extreme northern horizon. But I had bought a coffee, so I stuck around long enough to get some star trails.
The photo is about 150 images, 10 seconds each, ISO 800, f/2.8, 11mm, all stacked in GIMP. The waxing half-moon lit the foreground for me.
…to quote one William Gibson.
Photos taken at Crow’s General Store, Brandon, MB.
Since we were in Edmonton, I stocked up on
author fuel whiskey.
Sometimes it’s hard to see the beauty in winter, which is why I like taking photos of things like hoar on trees and frost on windowpanes (like the photo above).
Otherwise, it’s too easy to feel like this—
—when the temperature dips to -30°C in the mornings.
In my banned books mug.
As it heats up, the black REDACTION bars fade, revealing the titles of books that have been banned and challenged through the years.
It may be -35°C outside but at least the sky is a lovely shade of blue.
Things I didn’t expect to see in Victoria Avenue the morning after a heavy snowfall the week before Xmas: this guy.
