One of the many disorders that has been in the forefront of the public eye lately is SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder. As winter comes it becomes more reported on to the point of being annoying. When I was growing up my Mother called it cabin fever but that was not cool enough so the disorder of SAD was born. It is something that many if not all people suffer from and many have it but don’t know they have it. It effects people in different ways, some more severe than others.
There is a lot of snow in those there mountains. October 4, 2018 and most years there may be a light dusting of snow, or maybe some frost but this year the snow is cold and deep. Great for building the snow pack and for pictures, not so great for people or animals trying to get through it.
I wanted to take a “fall” trip to Banff and Kananaskis for a number of shoots that I planned to do. Well the trip was more like a winter trip than fall and I never got any of the shots that I went for. I did manage to get chased away from an area that I wanted to shoot by a warden, something about no camping and well I did fall asleep while I was waiting for the snow flurries to stop falling – which they never did all night!!!! Still had a great time. I can tell you that some of the back roads in southern Alberta are not fit for driving this time of year. Some MAJOR ruts and challenges!
Working on edits from the bridge shoot the other night. The colors were amazing and with little wind I did a number of time exposures. Would like to do more before winter but not sure how the leaves are going to hold out.
