Northern Landscapes – One of a Kind!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Who says I am crazy for traveling to the Canadian North in November? In 2008 I had the privilege to explore Newfoundland… November 2013 I visited Yellowknife and this year I was fortunate to explore Whitehorse. What a treat – no tourists, wintery scenes and special light for landscape photography! I was all set for sub-zero temperatures and brought along my heavy boots and down parka but the mercury never dropped below -8 C.

In other words: I am not crazy – I am so fortunate that my art and my teaching take me to so many wonderful places! My workshops in Whitehorse were a success, and I will share more about that in a later post. Truth be told: I neglected to take photos for the first three days (I was very busy with individual consultations and totally lost track of the time to pull our my camera and capture the moments…). I have received a few photos from one of the workshop participants but have not processed them yet.

Today I am sharing some landscape impressions from my short excursions around Whitehorse. Thanks to my host Maria I did capture the light and landscape during the few hours of free time and daylight. What a treat, I am sure you will agree! Enjoy today’s slideshow – I love the Yukon and it is my goal to return in the not too distant future!

    Anna, your artist’s eye shows through your photos.
    The low sun this time of year gives wonderful effects.
    I also like the three pines and the way their wonky angles give tension to the picture.
    Love the ice ferns on the window.
    Glad to know your time in the north went well.


  2. Anna, I had the BEST classes with you here in Whitehorse. You are a giving, talented and fun teacher. We all said you were wonderful. Thank-you for the great laughs and exhausting workshops. I am still processing the demos you shared with us. (and these photos are terrific)..

    Great photos Anna. The sun low on the horizon really captures time and place. I particularly enjoyed the three small pines. Be glad it was relatively warm. Snow and -29 windchill in Edtn right now.

    Wonderful photos, Anna! I too was most struck by the light when we spent Christmas in Yellowknife a couple years ago. And you certainly captured it here! Very nice.
