Off to the Winter Photo Tours
I am headed off to do the last of this year’s winter photo tours at the Aurum Lodge. This time both Samantha and Brando (the dog) get to come with me. I hope I can keep Sam from biting the participants😉
For those who wish to come to photograph Abraham Lake be warned of the incessant wind there. I was making some images with my G11 on Abraham Lake (see photo below) this past January and I thought it would be neat to make a video showing me by the ice block you see in the first picture below. I let go of the tripod and walked around to get in the front of the camera. The instant I let go of the tripod, the camera and tripod was blown across the ice. I had to run to retrieve it as you’ll see in the video. That wind can be nasty! The second video is a typical day at Abraham Lake so hang on to your gear and hunker down low to get use able photos.
Back in January of 2009, I was out on Abraham Lake on an extra windy day making the photo you see below. I thought I would make a little video with the Canon G9 to show how windy it was and you see that result in the next video (I look a little cold eh?). The video after my self-portrait shows how strong the winds can get as we see Kelly Funk trying to stand upright on the ice of Abraham. C’mon Kelly you can do it!
