This has been my favourite hobby as of late. I'm getting more comfortable with sailing over the past month. Due to the amazing weather we've been having and access to my friends boat in Nelson, we've been out more than I ever have before. Sometimes it means relaxing in the hammock slung from the mast or being absolutely gripped as water rushes over the rails while we're sloped at 35°. Either way, I'm hooked.

I like to imagine the forces that shaped the landscape over millennia; tectonic shifts that created mountains, the elements that wore away rock, the glaciers that shaped valleys and the rivers that carved intricate patterns of paths downhill. Through the ages, the chaos of these forces remarkable creates in a way that cannot be matched by humans. Beauty out of chaos on a time-scale we are unable to comprehend.

Getting to these places isn’t always easy (pushing bikes for hours - no sleep on a mountain peak - waking up at 4am) but they are worth it when everything comes together. It’s always a lottery when chasing the sun.

As I work endlessly in my office this spring (my usual after a busy winter) my mind floats back to moments like this in Valhalla Park last summer. When I look back at my images, sometimes it's hard to believe that I experienced those moments at all. I spend so many hours editing, reviewing, sending to publications that the image occasionally becomes a commodity more than a representation of a time and place. But many times, as with this shot, images that sit forgotten on my hard drives become my favourites as they are untainted by my process of business. Either way, I feel quite fortunate to call this my job and I wouldn't change it for anything else.

I don't know about you, but I love road tripping in my truck. There's something about having a self-contained unit that I can take wherever, able to get up almost any road and not worrying about a roof over my head or where I'm going to sleep that night. It opens up a whole new freedom which I have become addicted to in the summer.

This summer, Kendra Perry and I will be seeing more of Canada and the US than ever before. From the BC Coast to the southwestern USA, you will probably find us climbing, biking, hiking or sleeping in my trusty steed under the stars.

I used to despise reading when I was younger but that was only until I discovered adventure non-fiction. Books such as Endurance and Into Thin Air sparked my fascination with people’s experiences exploring this large world of ours. I’ve long sought stories, facts, historical peculiarities (sometimes to an annoying degree) but I love learning about the past. These events and experiences I read of will forever be invisible to me but yet have shaped the world I live in today. Their tales live on through words on a page. It’s incredible the power of books.

I had surgery on my knee a few weeks ago and it's been nice finally getting out of the house.
.
The surgery was scheduled and I was happy to get it done but it's been hard not getting out much as I jealousy see friends hiking and biking. I'll be back to normal in a few weeks but a fire has been lit under my butt to come back stronger than ever.

The signs of winter are slowing disappearing. The quick appearance of hot weather this past week got me excited for summer adventures as we took to sailing Kootenay Lake in #NelsonBC. The snow is now secluded to the mountain tops, buds pop on every branch and water looks more and more appealing. But don't be fooled into swimming yet, it will freeze you solid.
