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

It’s that time of the year when the green lady dances it’s way throughout the night. This was only kp3 when we were in Lofoten two years back. Funny that we were the ones who got tired of photographing and just sat by the shore while watching her dance the entire night. Will you be chasing the northern lights this year?
The Canadian Rockies is like a paradise! Endless photo opportunities of mountains, glaciers, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, flowers and wildlife. Make sure to check out Columbia Icefield/Athabasca Glacier when you plan a visit!
Usual scene on a summer day along the shores of Policeman Creek, Canmore Alberta. ⛰
Mt. Oberlin, Cannon Mountain, and Bird Woman Falls of Glacier National Park, Montana. Was hoping for an amazing sunset at this spot but got this instead. Had to make the best out of the given conditions. Here’s a two horizontal image merged together, first one leveled and the other one tilted down to include more of the foreground. So glad there were no bears🐻at that time!😪
This was in Kofa Mountain Range, Arizona. It was the last sunrise spot from our two-week long trip. As I was in my “bring-it, game-on” zone, moving from one composition to another trying to catch up with the light, I completely forgot about the fragility of the conditions that I was in. Then, BAAAAAM! Looked down and saw two badass cholla balls on my calf. !@#$! It was like Ace Ventura's arrow to the knee paaaaain. LOL! These needle like spines are called jumping cholla.
Maligne Lake is one of the must-see places in Jasper National Park. It’s a long 50km drive from the town center but the trip is worth it. Make sure to spare your whole afternoon when you plan a visit. Oh, and if you're up for a 14km kayak challenge, epic views on Spirit Island await! We visited this place last summer. All of us just sat by the lake’s shoreline and watched the light bathe the mountains during sunset. One of the most serene moments of my life!
The result of combining 25 frames for focus stacking + 5 frames for perspective blending and an hour of magical enhancements.🧙‍♂️ What’s the name of these cotton balls? They are called Pasque Flowers. They go from these fuzzy seed heads to beautiful blossoms in spring. Flowers were about 5inches from the ground and a few inches from the lens. Amazing what you can do with the touch-focus-capture feature of Canon.
Waterfowl Lakes, located along the scenic route of Icefields Parkway, about an hour from Banff National Park. If you don’t fancy long drives then you can opt to stay in the Waterfowl Lakes Campground just beside the lake itself. We visited this area last summer. There was a huge blanket of haze hovering on the area because of the forest fire so we were all surprised to get this auburn glow despite the conditions. The wait was grueling as we try to fight swarms of giant-blood-sucking mosquitoes like they have never tasted blood for centuries. lol. Here's a classic from upper waterfowl lakes backed by the famous Mount Chephren.
Tre Cime di Lavaredo, the well-known peaks of Dolomites, Italy. Have you been here?
To all my Canadian family and friends, Happy Canada 🇨🇦 Day! Cooooold -32degC morning at Vermilion Lakes.
Loving the mood of a brewing storm over Lofoten Islands of Norway. ⛈⛈ A panorama of that gorgeous mountain called Stortinden. ⛰
Riding the highway to the beach! 😝 Nah, this is Haukland Beach in Lofoten, Norway. Have you been here?
