I’m just going to leaf this here while I wait for winter. #onlyinwhistler
For five days we paddled through the fog. Navigation was challenging - trusting ability and the magnetic needle of a compass takes practice - but daily, the increase in confidence of the group was obvious and exciting to see, with student leaders putting their skills to the test. The ethereal feeling of disorientation after a quick on water break was fun to experience. When the fog finally broke we had some days of adverse weather. Pulling off water on the afternoon pictured here, we landed at what turned out to be a fantastic spot to camp. Before making a call to stay or go, an updated weather broadcast was consulted, and physical observations of the landscape evaluated. That night we dined on fish caught from the freshwater stream emptying into the gulf. Pure wilderness magic. . . . . . #kayaking #kayak #kayaktrip #paddlelife #paddleforever #camping #campvibes #adventure #adventureawaits #canoekayakmag #opcmag #canada #nature #naturelovers #landscapehunter #exploretocreate #wilderness #wildandfree #adventuretravel #outdoors #outdoorlife #sepaq #earthpix #beautifuldestinations #lifeofadventure #borealstories #roamtheplanet #roamearth #traveldeeper #guidelife
There are certain moments and experiences when you're travelling that you always remember. This was one of them. After spending 9.5 weeks over on Vancouver Island, I had just arrived on the Sunshine Coast earlier that afternoon. I was going to spend a few days there, first visiting a friend in Powell River, then gradually making my way south, doing some hiking and waterfall chasing along the way. On my first night, my friend took me down to the waterfront so I could shoot the sunset which was vivid shades of violet and fuchsia, lavender and rose. What I didn't realise at first was that the hazy colours were actually a result of forest fire smoke setting in. The next couple of days were very smoky and the summit views that I'd planned on shooting from the hiking trails were totally obscured, so I ended up bailing on the hikes and only did a short one near Gibsons on my final day. I did manage to fit in a few waterfalls, particularly around the Sechelt area, but in hindsight I realised that four days on the Sunshine Coast was simply not enough, so at some point I will be returning. I'm thinking maybe some winter waterfall chasing and some snowshoeing to one of the SCT huts. . . . . . #powellriver #sunshinecoastbc #bcisbeautiful #beautifulbritishcolumbia #discoverbc #explorebc #canada_photolovers #canadiancreatives #enjoycanada #explorecanada #imagesofcanada #insidecanada #pocket_canada #thecanadiancollective #cangeotravel #sharecangeo #tourcanada #brmblife #exploreclub #goodtimesoutside #mecnation #opcmag #gltlove #womenwhoexplore #wearetravelgirls #girlscreating #pocket_allnature #ig_sunsets #sunrise_and_sunsets #sky_sea_sunset
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!
Found this strange and beautiful rock at Vermilion lakes yesterday morning while with a client. It’s amazing...one can come to a place a million times and still discover something new. - - - #banffnationalpark #banff #mybanff #vermilionlakes #explorealberta #destinationcanada #banffnationalpark #banffnationalpark 🇨🇦 #canmorekananaskis #TLPicks #LPM #landscapephotomag #discoverearth #yourshotphotographer #outside_project #wildernessculture @canada #explorecanada #tourcanada #mountainlifer #imagesofcanada #opcmag #bestmountainartists #sharecangeo
A few moments later all the colour was gone from the sky and the kayak disappeared into the shadows.

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!!
During a very early morning wander through some of my favourite places to visit, I was greeted by this beautiful little Western Screech Owl
There are just so many places on this amazing island I want to explore. Every time I go somewhere new I have this whole new sense of adventure and wonder as if I'm somewhere far away. Vancouver Island has its way of making places so close to home seem so far away ✨

Finally getting to some photos from Jasper and Banff during the Dark Sky festival, ironically, this isn’t a dark sky. The lower falls at Johnston Canyon. It looks warmer in from a cellphone than it was in the cave. The water was close to 0 degrees and was freezing on the rocks which made it really hard to set up a tripod. . . . . #explorealberta #travelalberta #explorecanada #parkscanada #banffnationalpark #banff #mybanff #CanadianCreatives #CanonCanada #ImagesOfCanada #thebestofcanada #TheCanadianCollective #sharecangeo #greatnorthcollective #opcmag #nakedplanet #landscapephotography #landscapelover  #landscape_captures #landscapes #landscape_photography #natgeo #natgeoadventure #landscape_hunter #landscape_lovers #landscapecaptures #optoutside #beautifuldestinations #getlost #earthfocus
Life is like a cup of coffee ☕️ You sit by the window, lift the cup & take a careless sip only to realize you forgot to put in the sugar. Too lazy to go for it, you struggle through the sugarless cup until you discover undissolved sugar crystals at the bottom. That’s LIFE...too often we get too tired too easily, not knowing that even a slight stir could change everything...~unknown ~ . . . . . #bc #squamish #Vancouverisland #beautifulbc #vancouverstyle #britishcolumbiacanada #vanisle #explorecanada 🍁 #pnw #pnwlife #explorecanada #exploreBC #instagood #photooftheday #paddleforever #exploresquamish #canada #getoutsidestayoutside #ig_snapshots #picoftheday #beautifuldestinations #liveoutdoors #dreambig #WomenWhoHike #instagoodmyphoto #travellink #ImagesofCanada #opcmag #LiveYourAdventure
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 😍

A dark-eyed junco close up! To get this image I used two off camera flashes with soft boxes. These cuties lives in small flocks composed of 15 to 25 birds during the autumn and winter months. Each flock has an organized hierarchy and occupies a territory of around 10 acres. #photooftheday #canon_photos #darkeyedjunco

sometimes when i'm out walking it feels like someone's watching me, i guess that's because someone is

Grain elevators are slowly becoming a relic of a bygone era, and this one in Kinuso, Alberta is no exception. I haven't been there since I took this photo so I don't even know if it's still standing. #grainelevator #kinuso #explorealberta #travelalberta #alberta #canada #night #sharecangeo #yourshotphotographer #natgeoyourshot #opcmag #lesserslavelake #biglakescounty #slavelakeregion #imagesofcanada
Some days I like a familiar path. One where I've left thousands of footprints.
