  • The Long Dark: Story Mode — Wow!

    I’ve been a fan (and Kick­starter sup­port­er) of The Long Dark for a while now, and have played it in sand­box mode off and on. As such, it’s cool and fun! But this trail­er for Story Mode gave me shivers. And not because we’re in the middle of a Cana­dian winter…    

  • Cloudy in Edmonton, Canada

    Shot out my win­dow. It’s sup­posed to be spring, but these clouds are going to dump snow on us in a little bit.via Flickr http://flic.kr/p/eckKJS

  • It’s cold! Pamper your tech

    With the amount of gear I have around I’m sur­prised this does­n’t hap­pen to me more often. The weath­er in Edmon­ton has been rather cool of late, in the ‑20 to ‑30 degree range in fact. And today, since it’s warmed up to a reas­on­able ‑2, I decided to drive the car, rather than our oth­er,…

  • Some photos of the day

    I’m in Canada, so snow is a way of life at this time of year. It’s to be expec­ted, it’s routine, almost mundane. But occa­sion­ally you get the right mix of an early morn­ing snow­fall, and some really inter­est­ing light to provide the basis for creativity. Mix in a little Light­room tweak­ing, and I have fun:…

  • Light streaks in heavy ice fog on a very cold winter night

    After a great Fri­day even­ing with our good friends, we returned home to find this incred­ible ice fog over the city. The fog caught the über-bright lights from a loc­al RV deal­er­ship, cre­at­ing this rather nifty light­ing effect.

  • Alberta Legislature Ice Sculpture

    We went to the Alberta Legis­lature last Thursday to listen to A Joy­ful Noise choir — Tess sings in it. The night was warm and we parked at the oth­er end of the Leg. The Christ­mas lights were in all the trees, and in the centre foun­tain was this very neat (and col­our­fully lit) ice sculpture.

  • Two resources for planning your lunar photography evening

    A friend poin­ted me to this BBC art­icle about tonight’s full moon. It seems that tonight’s full moon event will occur when the Moon is the closest it’s been to the earth (dur­ing a full moon) in 15 years. Well, methinks. A per­fect time to get out the pho­to­graphy and tele­scopy equip­ment and cap­ture this event. But…
