I Went Outside

Posted By elvishefer / July, 9, 2015 / 0

I still can’t bring myself to process and upload the blizzard timelapses I took this winter. Instead, I decided to post some pics from our weekend outings around Nova Scotia. The beach (Bayswater, in this case), beckons: I actually saw the Bluenose II in port after about 10 years of trying. (There is a sign…

Peggy’s Cove and Hurricane Gonzalo

Posted By elvishefer / October, 21, 2014 / 0

My friend Tim always gives me a hard time when we’re shooting together by the ocean. I’m pretty sure he’s of the opinion that one day, I will not be paying attention, and whammo – nature will strike me down with a mighty super-wave. He would take the opportunity to say ‘I told you so’,…

Polly’s Cove, Bayswater Beach and Charlottetown

Posted By elvishefer / September, 29, 2014 / 0

We’ve lived in Halifax for a year now, and I’ve taken some photos that have made me very happy in that time. Our Summer weekend adventures were a great source of inspiration, and I am already looking forward to more next year. This post is a wrap up of September, which had some warm weekend…

Nova Scotia Whale Watching

Maryam and I crossed another item off our Nova Scotia bucket list this weekend. We went to Brier Island and did a zodiac whale watching tour. It was phenomenal. We saw 12 or more humpback whales and it was two hours of wonder and me shooting like a madman. After our trip, we ended our…

Nova Scotia Summer Scenes

Posted By elvishefer / August, 3, 2014 / 0

Summer is doing what Summer does best; go by too quickly. It’s already August, and July seems like it was an activity-packed day. Maryam and I have been doing our best to get out on the weekends and enjoy our new province. I’ve been taking photos, but not as many as I would like. So…

A Day for the Dogs

Posted By elvishefer / June, 21, 2014 / 0

Today was the Summer Solstice, and while the weather wasn’t very ‘Summery’, it was good enough to get outside. Maryam and I spent the day hanging out with friends, and after going to the Hubbards’ market for brunch, Maryam joined the hiking crew while I went to Queensland beach with the dogs. Mook and Lulu did…

Parasport Expo 2014

Posted By elvishefer / June, 8, 2014 / 0

Maryam and I were fortunate enough to be able to attend and photograph the Parasport Expo this weekend. We had a lot of fun shooting. The purpose of the event was to showcase parasports and let people experience them. Young and old took part, and from behind the camera, it looked like people had fun!…

It’s Macro Season

Posted By elvishefer / June, 4, 2014 / 0

As the bugs and the birds return to our neighborhood, I’m getting excited about all the macro photography opportunities. I stepped outside this morning after a light rain and saw two subjects immediately. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the best color in Canada is found in its bugs and slimy critters!…

Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon 2014 – My Favorite Images

Posted By elvishefer / May, 19, 2014 / 0

This weekend Maryam and I volunteered to shoot at the 2014 Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon. It was two half days of shooting under a tight editing schedule. I haven’t had a work out like it in quite a while; I probably finished day two looking more worse for wear than some of the participants. Nonetheless,…

Cleveland Beach

Posted By elvishefer / May, 12, 2014 / 0

The arrival of warmer weather is making it difficult to stay indoors on weekends. I feel guilty when I’m inside and the sun is shining, especially after the long Winter. Fortunately, exploring beaches is a great excuse to get out of the house, and we can be on one in about 15 minutes. This weekend we…
