It's a busy period in the near future, so I don't have a lot of time for this account. I try to post as much as possible, but unfortunately that doesn't always work out. I hope you understand it, for now you can expect something more. Now, I have 1 week holiday, where I have much more time to post something. 😋

A pre-fire image along a well-known trail not far from my home. From time to time, I like to comb through my archives for images I may have never taken the time to process, or just didn’t think it was all that good at the time. Here’s one of my very first digital captures, taken quite a few years ago during a torrential downpour in the Columbia River Gorge.
Last summer @mylesdmyterko and I made our annual trip up to Glacier National Park. One morning, after driving through unbelievable fog and incredible conditions, we found ourselves at the halfway point along the going to the sun road. We had already been shooting for a few hours, and upon making our way back to camp to eat, we rounded one of the many intoxicating curves of this incredible stretch of road. We emerged through the other side of the fog, which hung at logan's pass, and we were greeted by light that was so extraordinary that I almost forgot I was driving a vehicle. Myles was so enamoured that I'm almost certain he jumped out of our moving vehicle to shoot this scene. Unfortunately I wasn't able to find a composition on such short notice, so I scouted the area in case the light was to happen again. We decided to come back the next morning, and ultimately we got to experience the same conditions as the previous morning. Just one of the many reasons that Glacier is such a special place for so many people.
There are a lot of things you can say about Torres Del Paine, but lacking in drama is certainly not one of them. Hanging out in our campsites one afternoon, it seemed as though the light was crazier than usual, so I ran down to the lakeshore to see what was happening. Turns out there were unbelievable light beams shooting off in every direction from above the cuernos, so I ran back to the campsite and told @ericthiessen_photography we had to get shooting asap. Gathering our gear, we headed for the closest spot we could think of, featuring this wonderful tree that is constantly getting battered by waves lapping up on the shore. We spent a long time really trying to perfect our compositions here, since it required a lot of attention to detail to get this tree to fit like a jigsaw piece in the composition. Composition set, we sat here for hours watching massive amounts of wind push around massive waves, clicking our shutters the whole time.
