Sledding, All Dressed Up, and Behind the Mask

 By J. Ashley Nixon

 

Like many photographers, I’ve found that the COVID pandemic has been putting up barriers to creating new work. My portrait sessions were cancelled, music gigs and other events were abandoned, and travel with the camera all but dried up. I managed some local expeditions on foot or on my bicycle to photograph ospreys along the Elbow River. I also explored the landscapes of Kananaskis Country and the Badlands.
