Fun on Instagram

UPDATE: In the middle of December Instagram announced some new terms and I haven't posted since then. Sad, they ruined a good thing! 

Here is a recent update of the news

I've been have been having lots of fun on Instagram lately. I bought an iPhone early this year as Apple's cameras finely became a resolution that I would be happy printing with. Taking shots with any non-DSLR seems a bit limiting after the choices that come with lens. Soon, I got the hang of it and the challenge turned into an opportunty to be more creative in my daily walk abouts. Sharing is a lot easier too. Instagram does a great job of it. The only draw back being the annoying spam and crap photos being posted. Seems to be a lot of noise on Instagram. I'm not looking for a huge followers base just quality people who post interesting shots so I can follow them and they can critique my photos.

Watershed Sentinel Article

A couple of months ago I was hiking the Granite Bluffs which is about 10km North of our ranch. I'm apart of group who is working at protecting this area. It's British Columbia crown land and the locals have been using it as popular hunting, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing rec spot. First Nations is in the midst of reclaiming the land as they see the Bluffs as sacred. They have performed ceremonies on top for centuries. A few members of our group wrote an article that was published by the Watershed Sentinel (December 2012 issue) and they asked me if they could use an image to illustrate the areas beauty. For more information about the Bluffs www.frnf.blogspot.com and more images can be seen in an early post as well as info on where and how the images were taken
