One of my favourite things about photography is the ability to see the world from a perspective impossible with only the naked eye.

For example, last week I stood at midnight, in the pitch dark and aimed my lens at this bridge in Banff National Park. I’m always shocked to see what shows up on my viewfinder a few seconds later.
As companies like @sonyalpha continue to innovate and refuse to accept the status quo, I’m increasingly excited to what technology will reveal about the world that isn’t visible to us today.

Yesterday I decided to turn my lens towards a good cause. @trailsandbears has been taking dogs from local shelters, bringing them on full-day adventures, and sharing their stories on Instagram! Her goal is to find homes for these amazing dogs and give them a second chance for the life they deserve. When she asked me to come along to help, there was zero chance I was saying no!
With that, meet Lobo! Lobo is up for adoption at the Rocky Mountain Animal Rescue in Exshaw, Alberta. He loved his car ride to Banff, playing in the snow at the foothills of Cascade Mountain and a hike across Lake Minnewanka. He’s a bundle of energy that would make a great companion for anyone who loves outdoor activities. If you’re interested in adopting him, send a message to @trailsandbears or just follow her for so many more amazing adoption stories! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A few KMs of hiking into McGillivray Canyon leads to this geological formation known as the the “Choke Stone”. It looks even more spectacular under the night sky. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
