Driving back to Kitimat from Prince Rupert on the afternoon of September 29, 2014, I stopped, as I often do, at the Basalt Creek rest area. Took a few shots of the Skeena and the railway tracks for a story I was working on about pipelines along the river. Then out of the corner of my eye I spotted some mushrooms growing on an old stump, catching the light filtered through the rain clouds. Remember those childhood tales of fairies perching on mushrooms, with these you can almost imagine there were fairies on those shiny edges just above the rain drop. (Robin Rowland photos)
One of the photographs from my “Winds of Asclepias” project, the “Tallest Tower” can be seen at the Image Works “Hang with the Best Show” in Toronto during February, with the opening reception on Thurs. Feb. 4, 2010 at 5 pm.

What is “The Winds of Asclepias?” It is my my science fiction/fantasy natural world, fine art project (yes that is quite a mouthful) of extreme macro photography of milkweed seed cones and milkweed seeds. Shot entirely in my front garden from October to December 2009, the project creates an alien world just using lens and light and with the just a couple of exceptions no special adjustments in PhotoShop.
Here is a thumbnail of the Tallest Tower (which, of course, will be available for sale at the gallery).
