My photo of a crazy storm in NYC is the cover of +Science News Magazine. It's my first magazine cover.

The editors found my photo while searching on +500px   which illustrates the importance for photographers to share their work. Good titling and key wording are also crucial to getting your work seen!

Another shot of Perito Moreno Glacier on +500px  because it's THAT cool. :) The blue of the ice is surreal.
Another shot of Perito Moreno Glacier. I took about 400 of them :P Most were ruined because it was raining and water got on the lens :( Water drops are nasty to get rid of in Photoshop. Live and learn!

From my travels in Patagonia a few years back. :)
Truly a spectacular place. I spent hours shooting the glacier at Perito Moreno in El Calafate, Patagonia. Must go back again!

Honoured to be featured on the cover of The Capital Magazine even though that Cessna is totally upstaging me :P

More rocks!  This time a 3 1/2 minute exposure using the 0.6 LEE Filters Hard ND grad & the Big Stopper. Seems to be a good combo. Allows for some movement in the big fat grey cloud that was just looming there otherwise ;)

Canon 5DMK3+16-35mm, 200s at f/11, ISO 100.
Another sunset spent by the Sidney Pier, just north of Victoria, BC. I'm getting to know these rocks pretty well. :P Running out of creative names for these rock shots, so I'll just tell it like it is for this one :) Using both the Lee Filters 0.6 Hard Grad ND & the Big Stopper :) Follow me on Twitter: http://twitter.com/mostlylisa

Places you must shoot this year! Antelope Canyon, Arizona. Make sure to bring your Fisheye lens :)

Canon 5DMK3+15mm Fisheye, 1/3s at f/11, ISO 200.
Antelope Canyon, just outside of Page, Arizona is such an incredible place that I spent hours exploring. I missed the early morning light because of various calamities and general laziness, so I didn't get any magical beams of light through the canyon. I'll just have to go back :) I shot this with my 15mm fish-eye lens, a lens I hardly ever use. It's not the most useful lens, but when it works for a location, it's magic! The whole area is prett...
