This Salt Spring Island hillside is awash with run-off from the recent rain.
And today’s post marks a watershed in the history of Salt Spring Photos. As of today, eight full years of photos have appeared on this website. Whew.
In year nine, I believe there will be some changes as I expand my photographic pursuits. Both on Salt Spring and during journeys off-island.
By necessity there will be fewer posts; there won’t be a photo every day. This should provide time needed to produce images more in keeping with the quality of my commercial images. More images like the one in this post. It was carefully captured with a medium format digital camera system that I am gradually incorporating into my workflow. Though you won’t see the detail on screen*, prints made from the original images will be stunning at very large sizes (and at smaller sizes for those of us with little available wall space :-). Think about purchasing one print during 2016; it will help offset the cost of providing this website.

I hope you can see the three dimensional quality and clarity in today’s image. There’s more coming, I’m looking forward to sharing the journey with you.
*but if you are using a high resolution screen (like Apple’s ‘Retina’ displays), this website will know that and will serve your high res screen an image with four times the resolution used by standard screens…at no additional charge
