The following images were winners in the Manitoba Camera Club’s November photography contest. The theme this month was “Abandoned.”
The first 2 image have an interesting story attached to them. I was recently in Calgary. My son is a runner and one of his spots for running is a trail near his house. The trail is on the side on a mountain. I had been working on my images for the abandoned theme and he was quite frankly not impressed with what I had. He said he had the perfect spot for me to shoot. We decided to take family pictures while there and we all hiked on a sometimes steep mountain trail to get to the spot where these two cars were “abandoned.” What is so interesting about the two cars in the pond is that there is no road anywhere near them. There is only a hiking trail, which is not very wide. We wondered how the cars got there. We were sure the cars had been there for 50 years and there really was no east way to get them out either. It was a great opportunity to get some pictures.
This first one got a Second Place and the next one got a Third.
The post production in this one is Lightroom Action combined with some adjustments in Photoshop.
The barn was one we saw on the side of the road on the way to Eli, Minnesota. Another great spot for photos. It won an Honorable Mention.
