Image of the month

Here are each of the Image of the Month as selected on my other blog. You can click on the link in each title to see the runners up, or get more info about the selection.

May 2018
This shot has zero editing in Lightroom or any other photo editing software. There were some musings if this is a good or bad thing on this blog post, even though I hadn't taken this photo yet.

April 2018
This was a bit of a disappointing month for photography. I was so sick of winter, and white. Not so much for me to choose from.

March 2018
If you scroll down and look at the November 2016 image, you'll note some common ground.

February 2018
Shot near the Sheep Creek. A pity there wasn't something down at the apex of the leading lines besides the mountains, but I wasn't about to trespass to put something there. My eyes could see some creamy colour in the clauses on the left, but the camera didn't really see it. The sky was really blue, and it's maybe a hair darker than it should be.

January 2018
A lonely tree in east Fish Creek.

The 2017 Image of the Year

You can see the photos and read about what went into the selection of image of the year by following the link. If you just want to cut to the chase, the second runner up is Mr Travis Bee from August, the first runner up is the white peony from July, and the winner turns out to be the kettle image from February, scroll down.

December 2017
Easy choice this month, mainly for lack of competition.

November 2017
Fish Creek Bridge 2.

October 2017
This was a tough choice. I liked all the images, but no one in particular stood out.

September 2017
One of the many Yukon landscapes I fell in love with. This is Tombstone Park, at a viewpoint looking west or so, just north of the interpretive centre.

August 2017
As soon as I saw this on my computer screen there was no doubt in my mind it would be image of the month. About 3x magnification, hand-held.

July 2017
When I saw the image on the camera, I was ho-hum, and kept taking more photos. Then I saw it on the computer and got excited. Some slight Lightroom tweaks and I was over the moon.

June 2017
Linda had retired a few days before this was taken, and I think it perfectly captures our mood for the day.

May 2017
This is a reminder to me you have to be on your toes. The sunset went from drab to fab to drab in moments. If I hadn't been there camera in hand I would have missed the shot.

April 2017
Curtis. Our vet describes him as "dashingly handsome", and he is extremely photogenic as well. There is something about the shadow here that takes it beyond being just a picture of a cat, and makes it a portrait.

March 2017
My first abstract, done in a series of other shots that really didn't do anything for me at all. Then I had the happy thought of pushing the colours and textures. The two runner up photos are also some of the best work I've done, with one print up on my wall, and I sold the other one.

February 2017
This shot started as a whim, wondering if the camera would capture the delicate blue flame curling around the kettle. It's probably the most interesting, and dare I say, reflective photograph, especially considering it was pre-coffee. I have a print of this.

January 2017
Lower falls in Johnston Canyon, on a day trip with my buddy Sean.

December 2016
Out for a winter walk in Fish Creek, thinking about lines leading into the picture.

November 2016
This was the first of my photographs that I actually fell in love with. I've got a print of this up on my wall where anyone coming in the house will see it. I've sold a variant of the print, where that bright house reflection in the middle was replaced with some trees.

Please note, all the images on this page, and in the rest of my photo blog are copyright to Keith Cartmell. I'm happy to discuss selling you a print, but no other use whatsoever is permitted without advance written permission.
