Abandon Trestle



Abandon Trestle. My intent for going to Goldstream national park this weekend was to find this trestle... mission accomplished. After a short 2k hike straight up (at least it seemed that way), I popped out of the forest and found this track running across the valley. Certainly not the biggest trestle on my island, but neat all the same. Hard to get some good shots of it though due to the tree cover near by..

The Ants View



The Ants View. Train tracks go on forever. As in humans take forever to walk down them. This track I went to in Goldstream park, I didn't even try to find the end. Can you imagine if you're an ant? This would be your view, you would have to just keep walking. I guess that's why ants are tenatious. If they weren't, they wouldn't get anywhere..

Spring is flowing



Spring is flowing. Went on a hike yesterday to capture a trestle, and on the way up the side of the hill, I found an awesome bridge to enjoy the stream flowing below it. The lighting was perfect to allow for a long exposure quite easily. Thankfully I had my tripod. Edited with Color Efex Pro 4..

Home for a Rest



Home for a Rest. Another old shot from my trip to Brazil. These boats were out all morning fishing for crabs, and just off screen to the right was the marketplace of these fisherman selling their morning rewards. This was a new editing technique for me as well. I took one of Trey Ratcliff's filters and tried that out, it's almost as he defined it. I modified a few things just a little.

Closed for the Season



Closed for the Season. When travelling in Argentina we visited the falls, but there had been a record amount of water coming over Iguazu falls, and prior to our getting there, it had destroyed this part of the walkway. As such we weren't allowed past the point where I snapped this photo. I usually don't do black and white since I like the colour pops, but this one worked best for me in Black and white. What do you think?.

Rollin'



Rollin'. This shot was taken with my gopro stuck to the lower half of the door on my VW GTI. I was driving donw the road and a motorcycle pack happened to pass me. I managed to get this guy pretty square in the image. I was hoping he had a long beard. Oh well....
