Shooting For Summer

Shooting For Summer

Since it's a little rainy here and I have a bunch of summer type shots, I figured that I'd post a few that remind us of the warm season.

This is a shot taken on the Furry Creek golf course which is along the Sea To Sky highway. If you could sum up what makes Vancouver great in one road, this highway would be it. Leaving Vancouver, heading north there is, of course, a spectacular view, but there are a multitude of activities that you can engage in as well.

Golf, obviously, and diving, rock climbing, hiking - and the list goes on.

Then, at the end of all that, is Whistler - the number one ski resort in North America for the past ten years or so.

As for the photo, I tried cropping it so that the golfer was centered (horizontally at least) but that cropped the left side which shows the islands off in the distance. I like how that side gives the image depth but I don't like the other golfer standing in the bushes. I was torn and made the choice to stick to how I originally shot it. I'm happy with that choice.

What I am not undecided about is the colour of this shot. Those greens (no pun intended) and the blues really pop. I love the contrast of the clouds as well. The polarizer is a magical thing.

Fuji Velvia 100, scanned, colour corrected, sharpened in Photoshop CS3.
