Foretelling Autumn Hues

On a subdued, grey morning, the vibrant hues of this lone flower, survivor of a thundering hailstorm the evening before, seem incongruous. Though out of sync with the mood of the day, the flower’s saturated red, orange and yellow tones foretell the coming autumn palette.

Summer Fields

Prairie Summer

These photographs were taken from a moving vehicle, an idea shamelessly copied from other photographers. My experiment garnered mixed results, but I rather like these two shots, the movement blurring the summer crop fields and tree lines into simple bands of colour against the big blue sky, creating minimalist abstract compositions that emphasise the distinctive horizontality of the prairie landscape.



Zinnias and More

Flowers never fail to gladden my heart. If your heart needs gladdening, I offer this bouquet to you.

Soon, Magic

Soon, Magic

Soon, magic will be worked, and we, undeserving but grateful, will be graced with the magician’s apple pies.
