Coloured Canadian Country

This is the photo, well kinda-sorta, that I posted on Monday’s Monochrome Madness. Deborah wondered what it would look like in colour, as did I, so here ’tis.

It’s not quite the same as when I went to do the more severe crop to this colour version the feel of the photo changed for me dramatically, hence the crop you see above now. It didn’t however stop me from bumping up that contrast, lol!




Quiet Reflections (MM2-23)


Next to the remains of the original structure at Harrison Hot Springs we came across this little pond. The reflections in the water were just amazing.

When Land Meets Water

The water was so unbelievably clear and so, so still. It really was like looking at glass. This is also my submission for Leanne Cole Photography Monochrome Madness this week.

Different Kind of Beauty (One Four Challenge)

As often is the way, my days don’t always correspond with the days of the various challenges I participate in. Hence this month I have a fifth Friday for Robyn’s One Four Challenge. That’s okay though as I wanted to “mess things up” a  tad!

Yesterdays Beauty - Grunge

The Grunge Filter is one of my favourites so just had to try it out on this photo to give it that old world feel of yesteryear and a gone-by era.

To the days of couples strolling down to the hot springs, she with her long skirts and parasol, he looking dapper in his suit, hat and naturally a walking cane!

What a glorious time that era would have been with all those swishing skirts. Then again, given my love for laundry, I don’t know that I would have survived, lol!

Yesterday’s Beauty (One Four Challenge: Week 3)

Here it is Week 3 of the One Four Challenge hosted by Robyn at Captivate Me. Robyn’s challenge is to choose one photo of your choice then each week for the next four weeks, process it a different way.

This week I’ve simply converted the photo to black and white. Admittedly I imagined this particular image would “pop” more but sadly for me, it falls way short of that mark.

And are my efforts for the previous two weeks.

Different kind of Beauty (One Four Challenge: Week 1)

A new month, another One Four Challenge hosted by Robyn at Captivate Me. Robyn’s challenge is to choose one photo of your choice then each week for the next four weeks, process it a different way.

This is a photo I took off the structure that surrounds the actual hot springs out at Harrison Hot Springs. For today I simply added the Miniature Effect which boosts up the contrast , slightly blurring the edges.

There’s no denying I was expecting something a little more impressive of Harrison Hot Springs having spent an evening at the Blue Lagoon in Iceland but hey, it was a lovely morning and the company was rather good also! 🙂

Spring Unfurling! (Macro Monday)


What I love about the Northern Hemisphere is watching all the new foliage emerge after a cold winter. And now as I’m looking at this photo, obviously the spiders and bugs also enjoy this time of year, lol!

Spring unfurling before your eyes!

Walking the paths to locate the hot springs at Harrison Hot Springs there was so much new life to be seen both in the plant and animal kingdom, it was simply glorious.

Given the early hour of the day, having the place to ourselves made it that much more special. It was a beautiful end to a perfect holiday.
