Expressionism and Abstraction September 2019

CK Wright Photo Trips

As I started off this month looking for expressionism and abstract compositions, I will share that I had a nagging concern on how many more unique compositions I could find. This style of photograph is so new to me that I do sometimes wonder “how many more unique swirls and panning shots are there?”. I guess that is an unanswerable …

Expressionism and Abstraction July 2019

CK Wright Photo Trips

In a change from my usual articles which are strictly location based, this will be the first of what I expect to be a regular monthly feature highlighting expressionism and abstract photography and my development in that. The recent workshop in which I learned the skills for expressionism was truly eye opening and I want to ensure that I continue …

Driving southwest from Clinton along the paved Clinton-Pavilion Road leads through ranch land …

Big Sky at Green Lake

I spent Saturday exploring around the north-west end of Green Lake. As I have written before, this is one of my favourite south Cariboo areas to photograph and hike in. It exudes the quintessential Cariboo landscape, rolling terrain, ponds and lakes, and dry interior forest and related ecosystem, all with easy access and lots of public land to wander around …

108 Mile Heritage Site, Winter Views

CK Wright Photo Trips

Yesterday I headed over to the 108 Mile Heritage Site located along Highway 97 just north of 100 Mile House. I have photographed at the site before, though this was my first winter shoot here. The site contains numerous historical buildings, most of which have been moved from various areas in the Cariboo and Chilcotin for preservation and historical study. …
