Moving On

Hello everyone

I know it's been awhile since I've posted, but I've been really busy as of late with Art/photography sites.  I've never really been a great blogger,  it definitely gave me the stepping stones that I needed to get started with my photography and I have all of you to Thank for that.

So this is officially my last post here on Blogger and for those of you who want to see what I'm up too here are a few links  you can access:

Both of these sites are the ones I use the most and where you can come and look through my galleries.

Thank you everyone for all of your support!

The Sun Has Finally Arrived ~ Farm Life

 Well at last we are finally getting temps above 0 !!!  Yeee Haaaa as some cowboys might say ;) LOL.  So I got out of the house for a much needed you can tell it's been a long winter when I get tired on my hike.  I'm used to hiking all day long...not on this photo shoot..only put in a few hours.  My legs are no longer in shape and grew tired to my dismay.  My dogs on the other hand gave me a your kidding right??? We are going back already!  Saddly I said to them..yes we are.  Dogs are funny how they can give you certain looks.  I'm really working hard at my tecnique this year...better light and artistic flair.  I hope as the year progresses you will start to see a change in my style of photography.

What I've Been Doing While I'm Waiting For Spring

While I continue to wait for spring I'm trying to keep up my photography skills.  I'm finding the long cold winters here just too much.  Although I'm determined to find different ways to stay on top of the game.  Here are some shots I've taken since my last post.  I hope you like some of the creativity.

I'm also proud to say that the image above was aired on CBC Saskatchewan News in "Show Me Saskatchewan"  It's my very first win with my photography and I'm soooo thrilled.  This image was taken a couple weeks ago.  I couldn't sleep so I was up before dawn...and when dawn finally appeared I jumped towards the camera.  I love the light in this tree highlighting dawns light and frost on the branches.

Window Magic @ -30 !!!!

 Hello everyone!!  Yes it's been awhile but I've got some images to share with you finally!!  Saskatchewan is a very unique environment quite an eye opener for me.  Winter is not the time for photography here, simply because the weather and temps are not conducive for outdoor activities.  You can't use your camera if your fingers and hands are frozen.  I've tried thick gloves too, and it's too awkward to operate the camera with them on...they are more in the way than useful.  One thing I have notice is that you get the most amazing window frost patterns here...please enjoy a little window Magic!!  Hugs Crista
