Angie is a rural Manitoba photographer, based in Elm Creek.  Although she shoots everything from families to sports to macros, landscape and travel photography are her true loves.   For this show, she didn’t travel far – just to her local golf course, Scotswood Links.
I spent every summer at the golf course from the time I was five until well into my twenties.  From picking up golf balls on the driving range for half a penny a piece, to picking sticks and stones from the pasture that would become the back nine, I got to know the course very well.  I’ve always found pieces of beauty everywhere on the course.  A lost ball in the bush could lead you to a patch of black eyed susans, or a twilight game could present a beautiful sunset reflecting off a pond.   For me, a round of golf is more than a chance to beat my previous score – it’s also an opportunity to chase light along with the golf ball, and both often lead me to places I haven’t explored in a long time.
