    This is the first time in my life I have seen the Northern LIghts let alone photographed them. Being from southern Ontario, this type of activity doesn't happen that often. They may not have been "dancing" very quickly, but the variety of colours and intensity was amazing. Shot with a Laowa 15mm F2.0 Zero D lens.

    This shot was part of an impromptu shoot in an unexpected snowstorm. The idea behind the shot is a juxtaposition of different themes and imagery: safety, rebellion, thinking for yourself, power, and trying to fit in and find comfort in places where you are not accepted.

    As Valentine's Day approached I knew that I wanted to create an image that was both soft and sensual. I find that red roses can be a little harsh in presentation so went hunting for a flower that would help me create an image that was pleasing to the eye to be able to share with my friends and family. Blush roses are my favourite and I was fortunate to find some that I coaxed to open in time for February 14th.

    ?This past Father?s Day I went to a family farm cidery with my oldest daughter. The drinks were good, the company was great, but the best part was the farm?s commitment to keeping wild, native plants for pollinators. This little bee found a delicious clover and I got this macro shot.?

    Arches is considered a dark sanctuary meaning using light painting is not allowed. I went to do Astro Photography in June of 2021. This was taken approximately 2am when the Milky Way rose to the center of the arch. While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch. I held the wide angle lens open approximately 13-seconds, ISO 1600.
