We've visited the Sea to Sky gondola a few times, but this was by far during the most atmospheric conditions.
Semi-clear skies combined with low rolling fog created some fantastic, soft light, as well as plenty of abstract photo opportunities.
Watching the fog hit the side of these mountains was like watching giant waves hit sea stacks in super slow-motion.
Hope everyone is having a great week!
The first picture is from an encounter this afternoon. The second is what the poor guy is supposed to look like.
Generally horns do not fall off, they will however, break pieces off during the headbutting stage of the rut. I'm thinking maybe this guy got his butt kicked recently, because the whole horn (on both sides) is gone. And it looks fresh.
I personally have never seen anything like this before, but I plan on finding out as much information as possible. Stay tuned!!
Find your light in the dark and never let go! This post will be a bit of a longer read. I've touched on my thoughts about happiness before, but not in much detail, including my personal experiences and why photography is so important to me.
Many people struggle with happiness. In their struggles, they search in the wrong places. Alcohol. Relationships. Drugs. Videogames. One of the hardest lessons in life to learn is how to be happy, and how to be happy without relying on a form of escape. There is no one to teach this, unlike geography or chemistry which are taught in school.
Instead, happiness has to come from within. Through your successes and (probably many) failures, your experiences are the best tool available. For me, picking up the camera over five years ago was the best thing to ever happen to my life. I had other hobbies before, but never anything like photography. Photography changed the way I see the world.
The dew droplets on leaves on a chilly morning. The fog on an otherwise dark night. The pouring rain blanketing the lush forests. Photography made me appreciate the beauty of all the little things and it taught me how to be happy. It's amazing looking back at myself 6 or 7 years ago and seeing how much I've changed.
Back then, I was almost a completely different person. I never slept, didn't care about anything (including myself), barely felt anything, had no self-confidence, had anxiety for things as simple as taking the bus and played videogames 12 hours a day to escape my reality. But then I found photography, and slowly but surely, everything changed.
Fast forward to today. I have goals that I'm working towards, I finally know what I want to do for a career (not photography!) and love exploring the world. My trip to Baffin Island in September is basically the culmination of everything - it's my way of testing myself and pushing myself both mentally and physically. Not to mention it's one of the most beautiful places on the planet and barely anyone has been there.
Thank you for taking the time to read my words. I also hope you enjoy the image! It was not intended to be a metaphor, last night just happened to be foggy 😍
