“The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.” — Joseph B. Wirthlin. He and I may be very different, but it’s a good reminder for me to remember to see more.
Do you prefer ocean view or mountain view?
What is hidden, is thinly veiled by our own perception and fears.
Recently took a bit of a hiatus from the Canadian Rockies and Instagram. Partly to the lack of not having enough time and being home in the UK visiting friends and family. Had an incredible time at home but am looking forward to some summer adventures exploring here.
I'll start back off with a shot of Moraine, the very crowded jewel of Alberta.
A beautiful evening last week at Lake Louise in BanffNational Park, Alberta, Canada. The plan for that day was to visit Emerald Lake in Yoho National Park to rent a canoe, we arrived at 5.50pm and headed to the canoe rentals only to see a sign that the canoe rentals were closed for the day. On the website it says they are open until 7pm, so we figured if we get there a little while before 6pm we would be able to go. But when we got there the lady at the desk said that last canoes go out at 5.45pm and was firm about it ( which i can understand). We could not rent a canoe that evening...we missed it by 5 min. We would have come earlier if we knew! That was so disappointing as we wouldn't be able to go back there again during this trip. 😭😭 😭 We went for a nice walk instead and enjoyed the views there. We headed out to Moraine Lake only to find out that the road was still closed as the parking lot was full. We drove to Lake Louise instead as it was close by. It took this photo on that evening and got lucky that no one was at the canoe dock for a little while. On the way home an hour or so later the road to Moraine Lake was still closed! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Some information on the incredible colour of those lakes in the Canadian Rockies: They can thank their beautiful colour to the light filtering effect of rock flour that is present in the water. Rock flour is found in the glacial run off that flows into the lakes. Rock flour filters out much of the light spectrum except for blues and greens leaving this remarkable turquoise colour. The colour also depends on the amount of rock flour present in the water and how much sunlight there is, therefor the lake might look different on other times of the day. --------------------------------------------------------------

Taken at 3:30 am at Puramid Mountain during one of the most memorable nights of my life. I’m so thankful to be in such an amazing location! I don’t think I’ll leave Jasper for a long while. This was shot with a #Canon

Summer in the city
Weather satisfying the soul...
Red and black and red.
Bird on the horizon, sittin' on a fence
He's singin' his song for me at his own expense
And I'm just like that bird, oh
Singin’ just for you…Bob Dylan
i got sad when i realized it was a dream.
