Sublime light at Fortress Lake, and some of the best anticrepuscular rays I've ever seen in the mountains. The magic lasted two minutes so I stopped by the first patch of fireweed and tried to make the most of it!
Prints available as usual. :-)
Have a great week everyone!

Sweet dreams everyone from Fortress Lake!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Off for a few days of mountaineering...

Give me stars and caves and I turn 5 again. 😁

Shooting the Milky Way in shorts is the best!

First light amidst a sea of wildflowers at Fortress Lake. Thankfully the foreground was sheltered so I was able to retain sharpness in the paintbrushes and fireweed while letting the clouds flow up high.

While investigating the hiking potential in Hamber Provincial Park we stumbled upon some gorgeous snow caves. The view out towards Fortress Lake was mesmerizing (and worth getting absolutely soaked). It is a real joy to be able to photograph locations that have rarely (if ever) been documented.
Cheers to the crew at @fortresslakewildernessretreat for a memorable experience, and to Juliette for providing sense of scale. :-)

How's this for a camp?
Those little yurts were our home for the last 3-4 days. We wandered among exquisite alpine terrain up there and shot a couple of hours of aerials. Looking forward to sharing a few images from Fortress Lake and Hamber Provincial Park, a rarely visited corner of the Canadian Rockies!
Have a great day everyone! @fortresslakewildernessretreat

For those of you wishing to visit and photograph the Canadian Rockies when they are quieter and cooler, I invite you to join @WayneSimpsonPhoto and me as we take you to all of our favourite spots over 5 days and nights next January, each day returning to our fabulous base at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. Send us a message if you're interested! 🙂 Link in my bio for more info.

How surreal is this place?!
Could not believe my eyes. So beautiful.
Khongoryn Els, Mongolia, instantly became one of my favourite photo spots on the planet.

Wishing you all a great weekend from Banff National Park!

Get up early, catch the sunrise, reconnect with nature, get creative.

I'm off to Fortress Lake for a few days!

Lights out at the White Stupa, Mongolia.
That's Mars on the left. The Milky Way in Mongolia is something else!
My next newsletter is going out this weekend. For those keen on receiving it, see the link in my bio.

Nighttime in Mongolia is bliss for the photographer. Winds typically die down, and temperatures become perfect for wandering barefoot among the dunes and marvelling at the sand formations.
This is a self-portrait from Mongol Els. The way the moonlight brought out the textures in the sand was fantastic.
Our June 2019 Mongolia workshop launches in the @OFFBEAT_photo Community on July 16th and then opens to the general public on the 17th.

Mongolia Velvet.
The Khongoryn Els sand dunes are bathed by the golden light of a Gobi morning.
Have a great week everyone!
