About the Landscape Photographs

I have more landscape pictures than any other kind. It's just that most of my landscape pictures are taken while visiting American Civil War battlefields. As such, most of those pictures are posted on that portion of my site. This section contains a sampling of my other landscape pictures.

I am not altogether happy with my earlier efforts. My photography has improved, which I'm sure is obvious to anyone comparing my earlier pictures to my later pictures. Surprisingly few of my British Columbia pictures are worth posting. 1994 seemed to be the year when I started to greatly improve in my photography, not surprising as I got my Nikon F-601 camera at the end of 1992 and it took about a year to master it. The shots from 1994 on are noticably better.

The shots of Lake Superior are one of the few good things I got out of my vacation to Winnipeg in 1994. The trip was for Worldcon, a science fiction convention. It was the trip from hell. On the outward bound we encountered storms that took us half a day out of our way, and two of us got food poisoning. The first full day in Winnipeg, I hurt my foot and was hobbling around for most of the weekend. This greatly curtailed my activities at the convention. I don't know what I did to my foot, but on Saturday something popped and the pain went away almost instantly... just in time for me to catch the tail end of one of the worst Worldcons (not just for me!) on record. However, I enjoyed the company and the trip out to Winnipeg and am glad I did it.

The only other landscape pictures I want to post are those from Scotland. Unfortunately I captured those with my old camera on slide film. I don't have a slide scanner or an adapter for my present scanner, and slides are notorious for not coming out right when you have them printed on regular photographic paper. When I get something resembling a half-decent slide scanner, I will post the best of my Scottish landscape and cityscape pictures.

All of the pictures were taken with my 35mm Nikon F-601 SLR camera or my old Nikon FG-20 manual SLR on some type of Kodak film (usually Gold 200, though later pictures used Portra professional film), or with our new Canon Powershot A40 2 Megapixel digital camera.
