Road trip to Police Lake and Waterton

White Turtle IV, fun to drive on road trips

I needed to get out on a road trip so I decided to head on a road trip to Police Lake then to Waterton. My plan was to do some kayaking but mainly it was just to get out of town for a while. I am starting to need some wilderness time.

A road trip is not complete in the spring or summer without seeing some Mountain Bluebirds.

It always seems to be windy down there but this day it wasn’t bad. I got to see a lot of scenery and stop in and visit some friends. It was the first trip for the White Turtle IV and gave me a chance to figure out where all my gear was to go. I have to stay organized when i am out so I can find things when I need them and with a new vehicle I have to find all the storage spots to keep me organized.

The day turned out a lot better then I thought it would. Lots to see and take pictures of and a nice drive.

I think I found spots for most of my gear as well.

Winter blues

Even with it being not a bad winter I still have the winter blues. I really have not minded this past winter for cold temperatures, so far only one really bad week of horrible temperatures. The problem has been the changes in the weather. One day it is cool and snowy and a day later …

Morning Frost

Morning Frost

I love frost on just about anything. When I went out for my late night walk last night the fog was slowly rolling into town. I figured that the next day would bring some morning frost and I was right. On my morning walk it was amazing. As soon as I got home I grabbed a camera and headed out to my front yard.

Just as I was starting to shoot the winds started to come up and the frost was starting to blow off the trees and plants. It stayed around long enough fr me to get my pictures. Four hundred pictures later and I am happy 🙂 Here are a few of the pictures. Has been a while since the weather and my schedule worked out.

Camera – Canon 5D MkIV, 100 2.8 Macro, 400 ISO – various shutter speeds and aperture

Paterson Photography Changes

People have been asking why the changes here at Paterson Photography? Well it is simple, I am trying to stay organized and that is a HUGE project in itself. Over the past years several of my businesses and hobbies have merged into one HUGE mess.

People that are looking for my nature prints find my woodworking or my teaching information but cannot find my nature prints. People that want to follow the happenings with my van find my nature prints, etc, etc.

So I have been slowly separating things to make it easier for me and for my friends and clients. Well to be blunt it is like separating an omelette, it has not been easy. I am glad that I am doing it but it will take a lot of work to clean things up.

So be patient and someday I may have things all organized. You may see posts overlapping for a while but slowly things will split completely, or at least that is how I plan it 🙂

So some of my sites if you are interested are below…
