It’s all in a name, they say, and in this case Four Acres of Rust says it all.  Our photography adventures find us exploring all sorts of wonderful spots here on Vancouver Island, and in doing so we meet the most incredible people.  In today’s post we are going to feature one of our favorite […]

I really just can’t help it, I find rust to be visually delicious.  It’s got texture, it’s got character, it’s got years of stories hidden under that rich patina, stories that often remain secret and locked away forever.  When researching our trips up to Telegraph Cove at the northern end of Vancouver Island, it was […]

It would seem that the good folks over at Topaz Labs never seem to sleep.  They are constantly enhancing and updating their current set of tools, and in all cases these advancements produce incredible results that make it easy for us photographers to create great images, easily.  In today’s fast paced world, we find it […]
