Saskatchewan election – vote for the grasslands

On the eve of the 2016 Saskatchewan election, it is disappointing to see that the environment and sustainable development have not been a serious topic of debate. We have heard almost nothing what the major political parties will do to safeguard our disappearing native prairie landscapes. The prairie ecosystem is one of the most altered and threatened in North America; only 20% of Saskatchewan’s native prairie remain, and in some areas, such as in the Regina Plains, there are less than 1% native prairie left. Even protected areas do not have a secure future, as a series of political measures...

Images on display to mark the World Photography Day

Did you know that the World Photography Day is observed around the world on August 19th? It is a day to celebrate the art of photography, whether you are a casual or a full-time professional photographer. Photography has changed the way we see the world around us. It has allowed us to connect and learn about lives and interests of fellow human beings. It allowed us to share our stories, places we have explored and memories of loved ones. In the era of digital photography, this ability to share became ubiquitous – millions of images are posted on “sharing” sites at speeds not possible...

Jane’s Walk – photo walk in downtown Saskatoon

Jane’s Walk – photo walk in downtown Saskatoon

I have been invited to lead a photography walk in downtown Saskatoon as part of the 2015 Jane’s Walk festival. The Saskatoon festival will start on Friday May 1st in the evening and end on Sunday, May 3rd. There will be 16 guided walks this year. The photo walk that I led last year was a great success. On a rather cold and windy morning, a group of brave souls joined me for a walk along the Meewasin Trail. This year I will lead a group to explore the familiar downtown scene with fresh eyes, snap a few pictures and exercise our creative side. The idea is to slow down, look beyond the obvious...

Saskatchewan landscapes – an illustrated talk

Just a reminder that on Friday, April 24, 2015 I will present an illustrated talk Saskatchewan Landscapes at the Frances Morrison Central Library (311 – 23rd St East, Saskatoon). The show starts at 2 p.m, and admission is free. Drawing from over 15 years of exploring the wilds of Saskatchewan, I will share images from my favourite places in the province. If you are passionate about Saskatchewan landscapes, join us for a journey of discovery and inspiration.     In the eyes of many Canadians, Saskatchewan landscapes are no more than endless fields of wheat and barley. In reality, our...

Spring equinox, 2015 solar eclipse and supermoon

Spring equinox, 2015 solar eclipse and supermoon

Happy first day of (astronomical) spring. On Friday, March 20th spring will officially arrive on the prairies at 4:45 p.m. CST. When I woke up this morning, the ground was covered with a thin layer of fresh snow. Not exactly a spring-like weather.     Let’s then celebrate the vernal equinox, one of only two days of the year when all places on Earth (outside of the polar regions) see the sun rise at due east and set at due west along the horizon. Remember that when you set up your camera to capture the sunrise or sunset this week. The sun appears directly overhead at Earth’s...
