Rainstorm Over Sunwapta Pass / Icefields Parkway, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada. We had just driven past a storm on the way up to the pass so I was able to photograph it from the overlook.

Peyto Lake Scenic Vista from Bow Summit, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada. One must-do is the short hike to Bow Summit. The trail was covered under waist-deep snow on my previous visit so it made what should have been a short, moderate-incline hike into a strenuous hike but this time everything was thawed out. It was nice to finally see Peyto Lake with it’s trademark turquoise water though the accessibility made for a crowded view at Bow Summit. I had to assertively fit my tripod into an opening whenever possible.

+Lance Kull The lake comes from melted glacier water. As I understand it, it is rock flour that gets scraped off of the rock from the glaciers as they melt.

Canadian National Railway at Jasper Rail Station, Alberta, Canada. I saw a double-rainbow unfold from my hotel window so I shot a bunch of photos then I ran downstairs to across the street to catch this locomotive and conductor passing through town right before the rainbow completely disappeared. http://www.rwongphoto.com/blog/jasper-alberta/

Mountain Goat Mother and Baby Along Icefields Parkway, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. This mountain goat family caused quite the traffic jam on Icefields Parkway!

Athabasca Falls, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. Athabasca Falls is one of the more impressive sights along the Icefields Parkway. More than just visually, the roar of the falls and the ground shaking beneath you is something to be experienced.

Train Riding Along Bow River, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada. This scene was just calling for a train so luckily one showed up after about 10 minutes of waiting.

The Foot of Athabasca Glacier / Columbia Icefield, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. Athabasca Glacier is looking a bit depressing these days due to climate change but it was so windy when I walked up here recently.

Why depressing? It's a glacier. This is what glaciers do: they advance, they recede. 'Twas ever thus.

Sunset Over San Francisco Bay, Alameda, California. After wrapping up dinner, the light started to warm up so I just had to rush home to grab my gear and head straight for the nearest body of water as soon as possible. http://www.rwongphoto.com/blog/you-almost-missed-it/

Milky Way Galaxy, Humboldt Redwoods State Park, California. I woke up the other night around 1:30 a.m. and decided to take the trail through the redwood forest down to the river. About halfway down the trail, I fell to my hands and knees with the lantern flying away. Since it was so dark outside with no moon out I'm not sure why I fell as I either slipped or stepped into a gap but my knee hurt for the rest of the night. But when there are photos to make, you just dust yourself off and get back to work! It's amazing how clearly you can see the Milky Way with the naked eye when there is no light pollution to compete with.

Canon 5d MKII, 30 sec, ISO 6400. I'm sure there would be much less grain and noise had I used a Sony or Nikon; heck even my Fuji XE-1, but I make do with what I have.
