    Steve - haven't been to riverfire for a few years now but there's a mountain of photo ops there. There's a sneaky spot at Southbank I used to go to (required a couple of fence jumps) that gets you up nice and high and you can see all the way past the story bridge and across the city.

    Nice shot mate.

    Yes I was employing some dramatic understatement there, that's for sure! I live in Canmore Alberta, just outside Banff National Park in Canada. If you look on Google Maps for Lake Louise Alberta, you'll see where the Icefields Parkway begins (hwy 93). Just 3 km up that road is Herbert Lake, where I got the sunrise shot. Another 7 km north is where I got the telephoto shot of the road, pointing back to Lake Louise. Yes it is hard to remain focused on work sometimes (okay, always), with this scenery all around!

    Thanks Pat --- yes it was definitely a plan that worked out very well. But I think your day was even better --- you captured a spectacular series of images with a totally surprising and unpredictable sky. Thanks for sharing the whole set... it allows us to get a sense of the excitement and drama of the light show. But it all goes to prove that the best photographic accessory you can buy is an alarm clock!

    Thanks ever so much! And yes I do hope you get the chance to visit here someday. September is the best month too, in my view. If any of you are in the neighbourhood, I'd be delighted to be a photo tour guide!

    Ah lovely. I will be in Canada in February for about a month. Will likely spend most of our time snowboarding Whistler and Blackcomb but we're looking into catching a train through the rockies for a few days to give the knees a break from the slopes.

    Certainly a stunning part of the world you live in right there.

    Thank you very much. And you are right about the alarm clock. It is amazing that at sunset it is difficult to get a shot without people walking into it, but at sunrise you have the place completely to yourself until 9:00 or 10:00AM (and the animals are far more active).

    After you had mentioned that before, I seriously thought about heading to your area this September because your pictures are so inspiring... it made me want to check it out. But it did not work out. We have a daughter going to school in Northern Michigan, so our time off for the next couple years will probably be there (which is not so bad either). Maybe in a couple of years.

    That is really colorful. I cannot wait until the fire works (I hope you will be posting those anyway).

    How did your landscape class go?

    Hey Steve I found this pic on flickr just now. I've had this guy in my contacts for ages and he takes a nice pic. Maybe some inspiration for your next journey to Brisvegas?
