Today is Thursday October 1st. We fly home tomorrow…..(insert sad face emoji). Slept in a bit. My persistence paid off this morning. I have begged My Bride to go to the Ammonite/Ammolite factory. The Ammonite fossils (some 70 million years old) are found world wide. The incredibly stunning Ammolite is only found in this part of Canada. Considered one of the rarest gems, the opportunity to see how they are mined and finished was important to me. The visit exceeded my expectations.
This past week was very stress relieving. To be in the wilderness and carrying my camera is always top of my fun list. To be with Karen the whole time made it supreme!
For you photographers this next shot was taken at ground level. I actually sat my D800 with a 16-38mm lens on the moss. Laying on my belly it was extremely difficult to focus. The lens was about 13″ from the mushrooms. The upright mushroom is about 3″ tall. Not a particularly great photo. Just will always remember the location and the actual spot.
Holy Snap!!! Your pictures are so beautiful, I thought we were on a trip with you and Karen again. This is so over the top, I want to go there now. I can’t believe you are so talented with a camera. Please forgive me for not knowing more about photography. I do know you have a special talent to see the beauty in a different way than most. I would love to visit with you more about this trip one day. If you ever have a few extra minutes, lets catch up. I sure miss see you!! Merry Christmas to you and all your wonderful family.
