Alberta is LIVE!

Hey folks,

Tomorrow is the Regatta here in St. John's... weather permitting of course. We won't know until the racing committee reads the augurs sometime before dawn.

Today however marks a different celebration in Alberta. Bob Costall has joined us as the Alberta Admin. Bob, who lives in Edmonton has kicked things off with a great Photoguide about the Waskahegan Hiking Trail.

As Bob notes
Often in settled country it is difficult to reach potential photographic sites because of private ownership. The Waskahegan Trail offers entry to miles and miles of central Alberta countryside not otherwise accessible. With multiple access points and varied terrain there are lots of opportunities for photography.

The Alberta blog is live and we look forward to lots of great Photoguides to come!

Cheers, Bob!

Season's Greetings

I hope you're all ready for a fine holiday season! We just had our first taste of snow here in St. John's NL last night. Yes, we got about a centimeter and a half of slushy snow that partially melted away today. So basically we're laughing compared to the rest of Canada and much of Newfoundland, too, as huge swaths of the country are frozen solid. We seemed to have dodged the storms. For now. It won't last, but we're enjoying it while we can.

I've added a couple of pix to the Signal Hill Photoguide that were taken from the Atlantic Place parking garage which is a fine spot for photographing from in general.

Anyway, keep warm, take photos, and make a Photoguide this Christmas! Now there's a gift that will keep on giving!

Welcome to the Free Photo Guides for Canada. 

These guides are written by photographers for photographers. This site is part of a world-wide network of free photoguides. Soon to be a vast, deep resource for photographers planning a trip to anywhere this exciting project is just getting under way, but already there are lots of great guides up for you to visit.

What's best about these guides is that they are written by photographers who have "been there" and know what the challenges are and when the light is good etc. so they provide more pertinent and specific information than a regular visitors' guide would. 

Be a part of it now! Join up and write a photoguide of your special places to photograph. It's fun!

Enjoy the guides.
