February 18, 2018 Dawn on the Muskrat

“Dawn on the Muskrat” © 2018 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott It was one of those mornings where a warm rising sun burned off the frost of a bitterly cold night, creating rising clouds of mist over the Muskrat River. I found some reeds to serve as my foreground, and the beautifully diffused sunlight […]

February 7, 2018 The Violet Shades of Dawn

© 2018 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott I caught some lovely predawn colors cover a frozen river (the Ottawa River that divides the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec). A lens like the new Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS gives you the ability to shoot a little bit of everything, and in this […]

February 6, 2018 The Frozen North

The Frozen North © 2018 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott This winter has been more than a little weird. It’s been either incredibly cold or unseasonably warm. A couple days ago the temperature went from around -4 C to -30 C within a few hours. I was out cross country skiing as the cold […]

January 24, 2018 A Walk Through Narnia

A Walk Through Narnia © 2018 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott Here’s another shot from the Laowa/a7R3 combo and our walk the other day. We got caught in the storm on the way back, with the snow picking up with every step. It made the trek home more of an adventure…a walk through Narnia. […]

December 30, 2017 The Lesser Light

It was also incredibly cold (about -30 C), and […]

December 5, 2017 The Way We Were

The Way We Were © 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott The march of time is irresistable. We all get older day by day. I’ve been blessed with a lovely wife who is aging magnificently and I am deeply in love with after more than 20 years of marriage. Still, the two of us […]

December 3, 2017 Waiting for Christmas

Waiting for Christmas © 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott My daughter is always gung-ho for Christmas. She’s been out buying decorations for her room (including the tree shown in the defocused area here) and even has done a “room tour” for her YouTube channel (which you can find here:). So when I asked […]

November 22, 2017 Fresh Snow

© 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott Winter made an early appearance around here, but it was a beautiful snowfall, with mild temperatures following it. Perfect for a walk though the woods laden with fresh snow. I used a different kind of combination for this shot -a Vello accelerator that uses glass elements to […]
