I've been really focusing on this local attraction to see if I can capture the lasting beauty within her waters. A hint of Nik's Silver Efex creates the look I'm after.

So close and yet so far away. I can drive thousands of miles for that epic adventure and yet ignore some of the most beautiful photo ops that are just 15 minutes from where I live. Figure that out.

Two weeks of travel in the far north netted spectacular scenic views and wildlfe encounters. Check out some of our photos from Northern BC, Yukon and Alaska HERE

Redemption

After having missed an opportunity the day before due to human error (no shortage of that going around) I was fortunate to have opportunity again to squeeze off a few frames and capture the details in this beautiful face. A few more here.

Always bring the Camera

A sweet discovery on the return trip from Home Depot the other day. Fortunately I had packed my gear earlier that morning in spite of the voice that suggested I leave it behind. Bobcats are quite rare around these parts so capturing an image was bonus to the pure excitement of seeing one in the wild.

Christmas Eve in Calgary

I broke away after dinner on Christmas to scout out some vantage points to photograph the skyline next fall when the leaves again change colour. Although freezing temperatures prevailed, the lights of the city warmed the night.

It was a thrill to see some Common Loon chicks on a nearby lake. The male's yodelling is always a joy to listen to on calm summer nights.

After years of hesitation, Branded Visuals now has a page on Facebook. It's a little late to the party so there will be some catching up to do. If anyone has some pointers along the way, it will be greatly appreciated. Click HERE to check it out.

Candy's Amazing Spotting Skills
Candy's Amazing Spotting Skills
Tuesday, November 29, 2016

I talk about this all the time but Candy's photo of the Ptarmigan again illustrates her super-human spotting skills. White on white is probably one of the most difficult combinations. Movement is what gave away the location of this male bird against the camouflaged backdrop of snow. And yes... I had to google the spelling of camouflage.

Churchill Polar Bears
Churchill Polar Bears
Thursday, November 10, 2016

I arrived back from Churchill on Wednesday morning with fond memories of great people, delicious food and thankfully countless opportunities to photograph Polar Bears on the edge of Hudson Bay as they await the freeze of the sea ice. North winds delivered the chilling cold that was promised but the clothing layers and hand-warmers fought it off beautifully. See the full collection of images HERE as they are gradually added to the gallery.

Reminder for this year

Having had a few mornings already where we've woken up to snow, I'm beginning to make mental notes of where winter will invite me this season. I dusted off this image of Maligne Lake in Jasper as incentive to get out and do more landscapes.

Burstall Pass Trail
Burstall Pass Trail
Saturday, October 08, 2016

Candy and I finally braved the short bike ride and wonderful hike up the Burstall Pass trail in Kananaskis. Larch were just turning yellow and the views of the lake were spectacular.

Bears in Waterton
Bears in Waterton
Sunday, October 02, 2016

Went to Waterton yesterday and enjoyed a great time with the most spectacular black bear family ever. When they decided to wade into the waters as a group, the shutter on my camera worked overtime to take it all in.

Hearing Candy yell "Come over here!" from the window in the kitchen always nets something rewarding. Evening Grosbeaks had invaded our yard and were adding brilliant yellows to the view.
