April 17, 2018 One Night at Parliament

“One Night at Parliament”   © 2018 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott I liked the moodiness of the original image of this shot of the Peace Tower at Parliament from the eternal flame monument (Ottawa, Canada). I’ve enhanced the moodiness a little further through color and the addition of the moon from another shot. […]

March 30, 2018 Winter’s Slow Retreat

“Winter’s Slow Retreat”   © 2018 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott I suspect that many of you are fully launching into spring, but around here winter fights tooth and nail to hang on. The temperatures are slowing rising, but the deep freeze on the lakes and the deep snow from the winter is slow […]

March 17, 2018 A Room with a View (Blue Room, White House)

A Room with a View (Blue Room, White House) © 2018 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott This was one of my favorite views on a recent visit to the White House in Washington, D.C. The “Blue Room” is one of the oval salons in the White House, and has a fabulous view over the […]

March 5, 2018 As the World Turns

“As the World Turns” © 2018 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott Don’t get me wrong; it’s still winter around here.

Some of the world’s most beautiful moments are missed by the vast majority of the population, but for those of us “up and at em'” they are all […]

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 […]
