Inspirations – Michael James

ISO 200 – 1/500 sec @ f/5.6

This photo is from a lesser known Canadian National Park – Elk Island National Park. When I began photographing landscapes, I came here often but had stopped for the more grand Canadian Rockies and the rural ruins I love to shoot so much. It’s a great spot with amazing landscapes, wildlife and flora to be photographed.

Some friends had invited my family to the park for a wiener roast and I had thrown all my gear in the van. Thankfully, we had a great sunset and the canoers (who I’d missed on the way out) were on their way back and I was ready for them. I snapped a number of frames as they paddled by.

Moral of the story – don’t forget where you came from and always have a camera with you. I’m definitely going to make Elk Island another place I visit often – I need to get to know its nooks and crannies so I can make every shot count. ~ Michael James
