Jungle Fire

The smoke of wildfires is capable of producing very unusual qualities of light... prolonging or delaying the "golden hour" for a considerable amount of time. This was about 4 hours after sunrise, but there was still a very orange light permeating through the forest canopy. I was at Cathedral Grove in Macmillan Provincial Park on Vancouver Island, and smoke from the mainland was still very prevalent.

The Diamond Ring

One month ago today, millions of minds were blown. Mine was among them. I had done my research, but I didn't fully know what to expect and I had no real experience with photographing anything like this. I will have a better idea of what to do next time I get such an opportunity, but it still was an incredible experience.

As the sun was coming out from behind the moon, this sight was referred to as the "diamond ring". I'll admit that I got a little bit larger diamond than I intended.

Dusk Falls on the Village

This was the tipi village we stayed at in Browning, Montana, as the sun went down over the nearby small town. It made for an unforgettable experience and served as a great launch point into Glacier National park the next morning.

It's Not a "Hairpiece," It's a Statement.

This little bird was seriously cracking me up when I observed him at Bloedel Conservatory in Vancouver, British Columbia. I don't know if his "hair" was always that way, but I'm glad that I got to appreciate it that day.

Of Peeks, Peaks, and Piques

Moraine Lake in Banff National Park is situated in the "Valley of the Ten Peaks." At this point in the evening, only the 7 shown peaks had sunlight remaining on them as it peeked over other mountaintops and piqued my interest. This was a 6-second exposure using a neutral density filter to limit the light and help calm the water a bit.

A Firm Path to Follow

On Vancouver Island in between Tofino and Ucluelet, there are some awe-inspiring rainforests. This was part of a trail through one of them in Pacific Rim National Park.

An Explosive Conclusion

This was one of the most vibrant sunsets I had seen in awhile, in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, last month.

Beneath the Takakkaw

This is Takakkaw Falls near Field, British Columbia in Yoho National Park. It was an unexpected beauty. Talking with a few locals in the following days, it doesn't seem to be overly known/popular, but we were fully taken by this sight.

Gazing Deeply

We only briefly stopped by Lake Louise in Banff National Park, but the duration of time does not impact the quality of beauty witnessed. The rising moon is in the top left and the setting sun has left a few colors in the stray clouds over the mountain tops. And yes, the water really is that color :).

A week or so back I shared my current phone lock-screen (the tipi and the milky way)... this image currently holds the honor of being my phone home-screen. It works real nice with the time on top and icons down below.

The Palettes of a Distant Land

It is fascinating what is "normal" to see in the landscapes of different regions. Along the Icefields Parkway in Alberta, most of my typical standards of normal had to be reset. Water color, mountain shapes and frequency, glacier size, types of wildflowers, abundance of wildlife... all of these factors were vastly different while traveling this unique pathway.

This was south of Jasper National Park, near Athabasca Glacier... one of the more popular stops on the Icefields Parkway. Temperatures in the park got to around 80 that day, but here it was in the upper 50's with strong winds.
