After a two week hiatus back home in England I felt like I'd not made any images for weeks. It's good sometimes to put the camera down and just do family stuff, shoot a few snapshots for the memory but leave the image making alone. So, that's been me for the past two weeks, family snaps and nothing else.
I confess to rising very early one morning and hauling myself through blackberry bushes to a stunning lakeside in Milton Keynes UK. I worked hard and really did get a hammering from the thorns to reach a perfect location. With trees overhead just reaching into the frame, bulrushes reaching in from below and an island on the lake in the centre of the frame, it was to be a wonderfully framed sunrise, unfortunately the sun failed to get the message and the shot was lost. That was my one attempt at serious photography in the whole two week period, and it was kind of nice not to be chasing images.
So, back in Canada I decided to head out to kananaskis and stretch out my 'plane legs'. There was a surprising amount of snow since we left and it heavily restricted the images available to me, but I found some ice formations poking through the blanket of white allowing me to exercise the lens too.
