Banff National Park – Fall is Beautiful

Canon 20D, Tamron 28-75 F2.8 @ 59mm F/11, 1/25s, ISO 100 Handheld

Every time I miss home, I can either look at family pictures, or I can look at this photo and be humbled.  Banff is an amazing little city a short drive from Calgary, Alberta.  It amazes me every time I go back to see nature at it’s best.  This photo was shot about 3 years ago– I’ve been meaning to post it for ages on this blog, but didn’t think the middle of summer was appropriate to post this 😉   I hope you enjoy it.  It was shot with a Canon 20D with a Tamron 28-75 f2.8 lens.  Shot at F11, at 59mm.

Fort Worth Stockyards with Anna

Canon 1Ds Mk2, 85mm F1.2 II F1.2

Fort Worth has some interesting western scenery with the stockyards.  It was fun to shoot Anna there this weekend, along with the friends from the Dallas Photography meetup group.  Anna was an excellent model and had great poses throughout the photoshoot.  The photos shown here were shot with the Canon 1ds Mk2, using an 85mm f1.2 lens.

New York Time Square Body Painting

Canon 1Ds Mk2, 85mm F1.2 II, Zenitar 16mm Fisheye

On the evening of August 1st, my family and I were in New York City.  In the evening we ventured to Time Square, and witnessed this little body painting show.  It is a very interesting art form.  I must say it takes a lot of guts to do this in the middle of Time Square.  Wide angle image was taken with a Zenitar 16mm fisheye, and the portraits were taken with the 85mm 1.2.

Weddings at the Tribute Golf Resort

The Tribute Golf resort in The Colony Texas provided a beautiful backdrop for this image.  I love the way the clouds came in a provided a bit of extra drama to the scene.

Peach Front Conure – Lola!

Canon G10 – 15.673 mm, 1/60 sec, f/3.5, ISO 80

This is my peach front conure Lola.  5 years young, she’s always a little sweetheart.  She loves to laugh, sing, and she can recite entire texts from memory 🙂   She’s a wonderful and playful parrot.

Ennis Blue Bonnet Trails

Canon 1Ds Mk2, Canon 70-200F2.8 IS @ 85 mm, 1/125 sec, f/16, ISO 100

Mid to late April is amazing in the boonies of Texas. This photo was taken about 30 minutes from downtown Dallas near a small town called Ennis. The Texas wildflowers are in full bloom, and the fields upon fields of blue bonnets are absolutely stunning!
