Shannon Falls: Changing Point of View

August 15, 2014  •  1 Comment

Adventure, play, and photography are my favorite ways to explore the natural world and continue to develop my photographic style and share my form of creative expression. What do I like, what don't I like. But more than that what do I want to convey and how best should I do that. As I approach a subject to photograph, every decision is a choice: where I set up my tripod (if I use a tripod- I don't always, even sometimes when I probably should), what lens to use, do I use my feet to get closer or move farther way, etc. Sometimes the obvious photo, the stand at the spot where the viewpoint sign is and take a photo makes sense. Often for me, it is a starting point. I am always amazed how quickly time can pass when I am in photography mode (for lack of a better way of describing it at the moment). 

On my trip to Vancouver I visited and photographed Shannon Falls,  the third largest waterfall in the province. What started as the standard viewpoint shot, the evening turned into a playful session trying different points of view to capture the waterfall. And it was really just the beginning of a wonderful night under the stars sleeping in a parking lot at the base of nearby Strawamus Chief (the second largest freestanding granite monolith in the world).
