Favorite Photos From 2015

Well it’s that time of year for Jim Goldstein’s annual “Your Best Photos” blog project again. This is a fun exercise in reviewing the past year and looking back at previous years to see how our work has evolved. In case you’re curious, here are my entries from 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2010. In …

Paint Pots, Kootenay National Park

In my opinion, Kootenay National Park is the least photogenic of the four National Parks in this region but there are a few places worth visiting including the Paint Pots. On my previous visit, I didn’t realize that the trail continued beyond the open meadow so I technically didn’t make it to the Paint Pots which …

29 Years Later

It had been 29 years since my mom had visited the Canadian Rockies. On that trip, it was my dad, my mom and myself. My brother was just a baby at that time so he stayed at my grandparents’ house. Fast-forward to 2015; my dad is no longer with us and my brother is an …

Canadian Rockies Photo Galleries

I just added two new photo galleries to my site for the Canadian Rockies (Jasper, Kootenay & Yoho NP) and Banff National Park photos. Images are available for licensing and as fine art photography prints. My Vancouver and Victoria photos from a few years ago have been selling consistently so hopefully that is the case …

When fire is caused by natural means then it can be beneficial, and as nature proves repeatedly, that life regenerates in burned areas. As a …

In this instance I looked behind away from Marble Canyon and Vermillion Peak in the background canyon my eye while contrasted with the …

Moose at Kootenay National Park

Moose and black bear are two big game animals that have proven to be elusive for my camera throughout the years despite several sightings. I got a few poor-quality snapshots of moose at Yellowstone National Park when I was still in college but wasn’t able to photograph one for real until recently at Kootenay National …

Canadian Rockies Video

Canadian Rockies Video I recorded quite a bit of HD video on this trip to the Canadian Rockies. With such a dynamic landscape and the abundance of wildlife, it would almost seem like a disservice to be a nature photographer and not capture video footage of what I saw especially when I was already there …
