Rick Armstrong has driven across the country in his truck, photographing the landscapes of Canada as he experiences them in the moment. For Armstrong, the moment is everything, because the next time you come back, the landscape is never the same. The images in this photographic journey are from a 21-day circuit through Ontario, Quebec, Labrador and Newfoundland. Most of the frames used in mounting the exhibit were lovingly crafted by hand.

It was a cold, but beautiful day when I went to shoot this a few weeks back. A lot of people put their cameras away during the winter months (myself inculded all be told) but the reality is that there are some amazing photos to be had if one is willing to put up with the weather and less than ideal conditions.
The palette of Autumn colours in Ontario is mesmerizing. I want to share photos that I took in Algonquin Park, the Muskoka region and Southern Ontario. The pictures inspire me to create a composition. Hope you enjoy it
Over the past couple of weeks Doug Underwood and I captured some drone footage of the David Dunlap Observatory using our Phantom 3 drones. Many of the shots were taken by Doug (the more experienced drone pilot) but I was able to contribute some shots as well. Flying the Phantom 3 is a lot of fun and the video you can get with it is really quite amazing.
One of my goals this summer was to learn how to do time lapse videos. I've always loved the aesthetic of this kind of photography and this summer I made it a point to learn how to do it properly. In the past I did a bit of time lapse (using the cheat method) by speeding up video. This, however, did not have the aesthetic possibilities (for example dragging the shutter) of taking one photo at a time and then compiling the photos into a video.
