Own A Piece of Canada
(or a photograph of it at least)
Here is an opportunity to own a limited edition,
signed and framed photograph of a truly iconic landmark
from his Natural Wonders of Canada series by
Canadian photographer, Marshall Postnikoff.
The Battery sits at the entrance to the harbour located on the slopes of Signal Hill, sometimes described as an outport within the city of St. John’s Newfoundland. The area is noted for its steep slopes, colourful houses, and its importance as a battery for the defence of St. John’s Harbour in both World Wars.
The vibrant and rugged grandeur of The Battery captures a perspective of it’s history, legend and lore, where you feel you are discovering the past, but in the present.
The Battery, my first in a series of National Wonders of Canada, is offered as a limited edition, signed by award winning Canadian photographer Marshall Postnikoff. The Battery was recently named as a Finalist for Best of Photography 2015.
Originally photographed in colour, then converted to black and white, The Battery captures the raw beauty of the hills, then brings back the beauty of the coloured houses to create a unique rendering of The Battery.

“the more I learn, the more I realize how much I don’t know” - albert einstein
My creativity emerged through years of viewing the world through a camera lens. The magic of the camera captures moments frozen in time that connect me with my inner self and my imagination. I am continually enraptured as I look through my camera lens and I learn more about the world that surrounds me every day. The creativity and learning that I embrace grows exponentially as I capture daily life every time the shutter clicks.
I define myself as a visual opportunist. Using the immediate atmospheric conditions I seize the moment. The subjects I pursue relate to my extensive travels that furnish numerous subjects that capture my imagination and provide for 'opportunist' images. These images include Travel, Fine Art and Street Photography.
For years as a Business Development Specialist by training I searched for a creative outlet. Photography provided this outlet and has given me the tools to explore, experiment, discover and to intensify my knowledge of a vast and ever changing world. I am a Collingwood-based photographer with a vision and a passion to share what I have discovered through the viewfinder.
Most of my original photographic fine art originate as digital photographs. Many of the finished images are straight photographs with minimal alteration; others are digital composites made by blending multiple photographs and adding digital effects.
I hope you enjoy my work and if you have any questions about this photograph, do not hesitate to contact me. I still have a lot to learn and share.
