For the Thirst Workshop we decided to venture out towards the beautiful Canadian Rockies. With the pre-choosen destination being Bankhead, an old coal mine that existed in the early 20th century. This unfortunately couldn’t happen. After discovering that the road has been snowed in, we had to come up with another plan. After a short discussion, we all settled for Lake Minnewanka. A different theme than we had originally anticipated but we could handle the last minute changeRead more ›
Hiking in the mountains in January?! Since it’s been such a mild winter, I decided to venture out to do some hiking Johnston Canyon and see what the falls had to offer. Once again, the Canadian Rockies did not disappoint. Having great weather (just above the freezing point) I headed out to the trail-head, which is located just off the Bow Valley Parkway (Highway 1A) at the 18km marker.Read more ›
Upon my travels through the world wide web I’ve stumbled upon a very creative and inspiring type of photography. Splash Photography or Water Photography as most would describe it, can produce some absolutely awesome pictures. You can give that ordinary item an extraordinary edge! Follow along as I take you through my process of capturing these great shots! Don’t get discouraged, it can take time, patients, and luck. Remember, water photography will never produce the same shot twice. So if your using a continuous lighting setup, make sure your camera is set to shoot multiple frames per second. If your using strobes or flashes you better hope you have good timing and coordination!Read more ›
Burstall Pass may be one of the finest trails available within the Peter Lougheed Provincial Park. This trail offers absolutely amazing views and a challenging, but rewarding hike to the top! I hiked the trail on June 22nd 2011, the weather was great and the water level in the flats below Robertson Glacier had pretty much subsided. There were a few streams that we needed to ford, the water? Ice cold glacier water, crystal clear!Read more ›
