“Um, excuse me...” . . . A young male elk seems all but a little annoyed by the brown-headed cow bird that has decided to dance around on his face. I’ve had a lot of luck with wildlife this season and if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that patience is a must and luck is everything! #wildlife #wildlifephoto #wildlifephotography #sharecangeo #canadiancreatives #best_birds_of_world #imagesofcanada #explorecanada #canadianwildlife #wildlifephotographer #wildlifeplanet #ig_shotz_animal #wildlife_perfection #animalsmood #igbest_animals #animalfanatics #splendid_animals #natgeowildlife #animals_shots #exclusive_animals #animal_captures #wildlife #wildlife_seekers #wildlife_addicts #ultimate_wildlife #exclusive_wildlife #naturesbestphotomagazine #animalelite #elegantanimals #pocket_wildlife

Mirror, mirror... . . . Sunrise breaks through cracks in the cloud over the Miette range in Jasper National Park. This view from Talbot Lake is one of my favourites in the park. After a late supper after a late sunset, the pups and I crashed at the turn out here for a couple of hours before catching up with @markjinksphoto and @scoobuhhsteve again for the morning sunrise show. At first it looked like a dud. And then it ended up being anything but! I got a killer long expo here as well but liked the texture in this shot just a little bit more. @travelalberta @tourismjasper #beautifuldestinations #got__greatshots #globalcapture #igpodium #nakedplanet #world_shotz #worldclass_photographers #mint_shotz #imagesofcanada #sharecangeo #myjasper #travelalberta #explorecanada #explorealberta #reflection #special_shots #igmasters #igscglobal #igscselect #infinity_shots #bestworldpics #bestnatureshot #bestshotz_earth #ig_impulse #naturevisuals #earthslocations #wow_planet #amazingphotohunter #ig_exquisite

Antennas to Heaven . . . Huge trees reach for starlight in Wells Gray Provincial Park. One thing is abundantly clear...the universe is very big. And we are very, very small. @tourismwellsgray @hellobc #universetoday #milkyway #milkywaychasers #nightscape #night_excl #nightphotography #nightphotography_exclusive #longexposure #longexpoelite #longexpo_addiction #beautifulbritishcolumbia #hellobc #wellsgrayprovincialpark #imagesofcanada #explorecanada #sharecangeo #explorebc #nightsky #nightskyphotography #nakedplanet #world_shotz

Moody Blues . . . I’ve been really down lately. 2019 started off pretty rough and there’s been a lot of loss that’s been hard to process...two good friends lost to cancer, major business transitions, changing relationship dynamics with loved ones, and a bunch more. Now that the dust from all the physical business changes has mostly settled, the weight of all the losses is starting to be felt in great measure. I’m working hard to stay positive and upbeat and to stay socially and physically engaged but most days right now are just plain lonely and sad. Even photography hasn’t helped like it usually does. As I sat here on the edge of Maligne Lake, firing off long expo after long expo and lamenting the lack of colour, I reminded myself that there are still beautiful moments in sadness. There are still bits of happiness to hold onto and look forward to even if you’re not feeling very happy. So I’m cherishing those moments these days, to help keep my head up while time takes its course. ❤️

Old Ghosts . . . . On the last night of the new moon window in May I rushed out for one last Milky Way shoot before we were swallowed up by perpetual astronomical twilight for the next couple of months. The skies were clear as a bell but thick, thick fog had descended over the countryside. There were points on the drive out where I couldn’t see a thing but being half way to my destination, I thought it better to push through and wait it out than turn back. Finally I arrived at one of my favourite abandoned locations where the fog was rolling off only a short distance away. While it didn’t give me the clearest horizon, it did give me a surreal and moody atmosphere, something not usually associated with Milky Way photography. I’m really pleased with the result. I hope you like it too. #imagesofcanada #itsabandoned #renegade_dark #renegade_rural #milkyway #milkywaychasers #night_excl #nightscape #nightphotography_exclusive #nightphotography #universetoday #travelalberta #canadiancreatives #sharecangeo #nakedplanet #world_shotz #igworldclub_astrophotography #worldclass_photographers #longexposure #longexpoelite #longexpo_addiction #rural_love #ig_shotz_le #globalcapture #igpodium

Stay Gold. . . . . Epic golden light spills across the unmistakable Athabasca Falls in Jasper National Park as the mighty Mount Kerkeslin looms in the background. The falls are typically overrun with tourists by day but there are some magical moments when you can have them to yourself, as @markjinksphoto @scoobuhhsteve and I discovered yesterday morning. Shot with: @canoncanada 1DX @nisiglobal circular polarizer, 6 stop, and medium grad filters. @travelalberta @tourismjasper #imagesofcanada #tourcanada #explorecanada #canada_online #canadathenorth #travelalberta #canadiancreatives #sharecangeo #exploreedmonton #explorealberta #albertaviews #myjasper #jasper #longexposure #longexpoelite #longexpo_addiction #waterfallsfordays #worldclass_photographers #nakedplanet #world_shotz #goldenhour #igpodium #globalcapture #beautifuldestinations #got__greatshots #ig_shotz_le

Prairie Sentinel. . . . . . A week ago we had one of the best northern lights shows that we’ve had in a couple of years. I spent most of my night at a special, quiet location shooting the aurora reflecting in a calm lake but as the night went on, I went off in search of new comps. This old elevator is one I’ve driven past many a time and always wanted to shoot and thankfully it was fairly close by. I whipped over trying to stay ahead of the clouds. As I approached the aurora was spiking again and I hoped it would hold. I pulled in, grabbed my gear which was still set up, got into position and managed to fire off one clean shot before the aurora moved past and the clouds swallowed the sky. This is my favourite shot of the night. A rare but classic prairie scene often overlooked in the hustle and bustle of today’s modern life. @travelalberta @imagesofcanada @worldaurora @nightphotography_exclusive #travelalberta #explorealberta #sharecangeo #canadiancreatives #renegade_rural #renegade_dark #nightphotography #night_excl #nightphotography_exclusive #canoncanada #explorecanada #worldaurora #northernlights #aurora #universetoday #longexposure #longexpoelite #world_shotz #nakedplanet #mastershots #nightscaper #igworldclub_astrophotography #worldclass_photographers #got__greatshots #igpodium

“Hello, friend!” A fledgling great horned owl “waves” to me from his nest in a beautiful old cottonwood. Mum was nearby keeping an eye on us and I got some beautiful shots of her that I’ll post in my stories later today. Taken yesterday on a great day out with my good friend Will who is no longer on Instagram because of lame cliques and those for whom photography is only a means to pseudo insta-popularity. @canoncanada 5D MKIII and @sigmacanada 150-600mm contemporary. #wildlifephotography #wildlife #birdphotography #owl #canadiancreatives #travelalberta #explorealberta #sharecangeo #imagesofcanada #majestic_wildlife_ #wildplanetphotomag #wildlife_vision #animalelite #igscwildlife #wildlifeplanet #ig_shotz_animal #wildlife_perfection #animalsmood #igbest_animals #animalfanatics #splendid_animals #natgeowildlife #animals_shots #exclusive_animals #animal_captures #wildlife_seekers #wildlife_addicts #ultimate_wildlife #exclusive_wildlife #naturesbestphotomagazine

Fire in the Sky . . . . . It’s been a while since we’ve had a great aurora show but leave it to the month of May to provide one. We hit G2 level and at times the entire sky was dancing overhead. I had two cameras going but still took the time just to stop and appreciate the display. As the clouds rolled in, I rolled further east to stay ahead of them and managed to find a couple more cool locations as well, which I’ll share at a later date. Shot on @canoncanada 1DX. @travelalberta #nightphotography #nightphotography_exclusive #nightscaper #world_shotz #worldaurora #worldclass_photographers #aurora #northernlights #universetoday #reflection #canadiancreatives #sharecangeo #explorealberta #explorecanada #imagesofcanada #igworldclub_astrophotography #nightsky #dreamscape #nightscape #longexposure #longexpoelite #longexpo_addiction #mastershots #nakedplanet #igpodium #globalcapture

I’ve fallen in love with a lot of ladies in Jasper National Park. Edith. Annette. This time it was Patricia. Boy what a show she gave me! . . . . Shot while touring around @kate_e_green from Australia using @canoncanada 1DX and @nisiglobal circular polarizer. And for those who don’t know, those are the names of lakes in the park not actual ladies. 😉 @travelalberta @tourismjasper #imagesofcanada #globalcapture #igpodium #sharecangeo #travelalberta #myjasper #explorealberta #jasper #sunset #sunset_stream #sunset_pics #reflection #mountains #landscapephotography #worldclass_photographers #canadiancreatives #canoncanada #photoarena_nature #got__greatshots #agameoftones #artofvisuals #earth_deluxe #master_gallery #igmasters #igscglobal #igscselect #infinity_shots #bestworldpics #bestnatureshot #bestshotz_earth

Eternity’s Well . . The milky way rises over the awe-inspiring Helmcken Falls and Jupiter is the heart of the galactic dark horse. This shot has been on my mind for some time and this week I travelled 1488km round trip in 34 hours just to get it before the window on it closed for the year. I arrived a few hours before core-rise and spent half an hour lighting the falls just right and doing test shots as the core moved into position and another 45 mins firing off frames. When i was finished I stood alone under the stars for what seemed like an eternity, grateful for everything and everyone in my life that brought me to that moment. This shot is 21 frames at 25 seconds, ISO 6400, f2.8 stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker and edited in @lightroom. Shot on @canoncanada 1DX with 16-35mm 2.8 lens and @manfrottoimaginemore tripod. It is not a composite as some other lazy assholes have done at this spot. And as a test to see who reads this far, my alternate title for this was “wet and milky” buuuut I thought the other sounded more epic. And less dirty 🤔😂 @hellobc @tourismwellsgray #hellobc #explorebc #milkyway #wellsgrayprovincialpark #helmckenfalls #world_shotz #waterfallsfordays #longexposure #longexpoelite #nightphotography_exclusive #canoncanada #sharecangeo #canadiancreatives #wildlycreative #longexpo_addiction #nightscape #universetoday #beautifulbritishcolumbia #nakedplanet #imagesofcanada #igpodium #globalcapture #waterfall #ig_shotz_le #agameoftones #artofvisuals #earth_deluxe #master_gallery

You know those moments when the sky unexpectedly lights up and you end up scrambling to find any kind of half decent comp? Yeah, that was this moment. It doesn't help that I still can't quite wrap my head around shooting the ocean either. Ah well, at least the colour was lovely! Huge thanks to my back in tha day pal @quitthistown for the much needed evening of adventure. DIY forever. ____________________ Tech Talk Camera: @canoncanada 5D MkIII Lens: Canon 24-70mm 2.8 Filters: @nisiglobal Circular polarizer, 6 stop ND, med grad Exposure: three one to two minute long expos HDR blended in @lightroom #curiocityvancouver #dailyhivevan #vancouverviews #veryvancouver #vancouverisawesome #vancouver #vancouvercanada #bcisbeautiful #ourbc #hellobc #travelbc #ilovebc #canoncanada #imagesofcanada #explorecanada #sharecangeo #nakedplanet #world #sunset #sunset_stream #longexposure #longexpoelite #longexpo_addiction
