On Saturday of this past week I took a quick drive out to Charlie Lake in attempt to capture some of the fresh snow. While I got over 100 shots of the snow and frozen lake, I got this one of a friend’s cabin. It has been tone-mapped to give it that HDR appearance.
Here is something interesting I got. It is the reflection of the Charlie Lake shoreline on the side of my Jeep. I have seen many photographers do this type of photo in the summer in the lake itself. It works really well if water is very still. I should look into the theory behind reflection and the best way to capture them.
An adventure is search of aurora proved unsuccessful in aurora still provided some mediocre shots. As I sat at one of the boat launches of Charlie Lake, just outside fo Fort St. John I got to see the lights of the little community and many starts.
I’m still working on my photography of the stars, but this attempt was a little better and the first I think I am sharing. My favourite out of these shots are the landscape shot of the lights of Charlie Lake lighting up the surrounding area and the opps shot of the very blurry lights.
Chase Jarvis once said something along the lines of “it takes 1000 good shots before a photographer discovers their style.” I think I only have 998 to go.
What do you think?
