A Dartmouth Field Trip (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Digital original
I can never tell what will catch my eye during a field trip; as I give many of these every year, and repeat the same locations for most, I tend to look for the subtle more than the obvious. In this case, the riot of flowers was immediately engaging, and I quickly settled on working with a long lens and large aperture to create a blend of in and out of fucs.

The shallow depth of field approach continued through the field trip, as I found singular flowers (like the above day lily) to isolate against the riot of colour around them.

The best images of the field trip came right at the end, as I was heading to my car, and home. A thick wall of fog began to move across the harbour, shrouding the bridge, and creating a magical monochrome scene.
