Sharing adventures, amazing places and good times one frame 📷 at a time. Cheers!🍻

Visiting the Canadian Rockies during summer is like going to a paradise. Mountains, glaciers, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, flowers and wildlife. Endless photo opportunities. A haven for photographers. There was a huge fire when we visited last year. Haze reached Oregon and Seattle. I hope that it won’t happen again this summer. Stayed a couple of days at� Glacier View Inn. Mid-way between Jasper and Kootenay Plains. Not used to the price range of high-end hotels, lucky that they allow five in a room sharing so we were able to split the costs. Can’t complain much when the hotel room’s window, frame the breathtaking Columbia Icefield/Athabasca Glacier. Here’s one of many golden mornings just a few meters north of the Glacier View Hotel. Hope you'll enjoy this visual treat. Have a great week!
Skagsanden Beach of Lofoten Islands, Norway is boring. 🤪
My first visit to the Lofoten Islands of Norway was autumn of 2016. Immediately fell in love with the place and wishing that I would get the chance to re-visit. After leaving this half-cooked image on my desktop for almost a year, I finally had the feel to finish processing it. I was so excited that I planned our itinerary five months ahead of our scheduled trip. I start to build each of my trip’s itinerary by searching all the images/places from FB and 500px that I want to check out, I find each of the location using Google maps and Google's street view then store each of the coordinates into my GPS. I end up having a 30+ page pdf IT. Lol. If you want to visit Lofoten and not go through all the toxic research of the place, would recommend you to join 👉🏼 @lofoten_tours 👈🏼 They are the BEST.
Lago di Landro of Dolomites, Italy during the peak of autumn season. It was drizzling when we left the apartment for sunrise. Got there, already set up and the sky didn’t look good. When I was about to look for other comps to compensate for the gloomy weather, boom! This awesome light lasted for only 20 minutes then it’s gone.
Here’s another image taken from one of the classic views in the Many Glacier area, Glacier National Park, Montana. Those who had been to this ridge knows how hard it is to get up here. 😓I was literally crawling from one spot to another trying to come up different comps. Luckily, I found these interesting rocks that would serve as my foreground. Wish I can move the huge tree further to the left so that you can appreciate the light bathing Wynn Mountain. 😉
Sharing an image from a summer trip two years ago in one of the famous national parks in the US of A. I had the place all to myself and made sure not leave any marks behind that would destroy the thriving floras. It was one of the best mornings I've had connecting with nature.
Do you love panorama? Here’s one from Cinque Torri, Dolomites, Italy. Shot without those bulky panorama rails. Just leveled my tripod and used my good old’ tank-built @reallyrightstuff bh40 ball head. Loosened the panning screw, shot 6 vertical frames overlapping a third of the previous image and stitched them in post. #reallyrightstuffballhead #rrs
A super cold, minus 32 degC Christmas morning at the Bow River, Banff National Park, Canada! 🇨🇦 Found this interesting triangle-shaped ice sheet pointing towards Castle Mountain.
Where did you spend the holidays? I had a quick Christmas getaway in Vermilion lakes of Banff National Park! Happy New Year guys! #LightUpRRS
To those who have been a part of my photography journey this year, thank you. 🙏🏼 You guys are awesome!! Wish you all the best this coming 2018! Happy New Year! Keep on rockin'! 👊🏼🤙🏼
Ever been to Palouse Falls State Park?
Here's a panorama of that epic light show in one of Iceland's must-visit place, the Stokksnes Peninsula. Had an awesome two week trip around the country early this year. Such a great place to be in and can't wait to be back!
