The Big Horn Sheep of Wilcox Pass
Generations of light
Chester Lake Boulders
A pleasant surprise
The Big Horn Sheep of Wilcox PassThe sheep up here enjoy lush spongy meadows with glacier views. Little A Glacier is the backdrop to this image.
Low tideWinter tightens its grip on the Bow River as it snakes through past Canmore. The water is ankle deep and relaxed enough to set up for a two minute exposure featuring Cascade mountain in the distance.
Generations of lightSometimes in photography you get lucky. Heading home after an epic night of shooting the northern lights we pulled over to take a few final frames. As I was setting up my camera a truck came out of the night giving me one chance to get my settings and composition. The light pollution in the background is from Calgary (to the East).
Chester Lake BouldersExploring around Chester Lake can bring you to some massive snow covered boulders.

Train warpCrouching next to the line looking through 8mm glass as a frieght train thunders by horn blasting. I could feel the power through the earth.

Firefields parkwayThe July 2014 wildfire burns strong along the Icefields parkway. The highway had limited access while crews worked to contain the fire.
Maligne CanyonThis short hike just outside of Jasper has many delightful bites of scenery.
Alpine MedowHiking around Mt Assiniboine PP on a stormy day.
Ghost campBoulder mat couch, guitar and camp fire are all we need to sit back and enjoy the milyway sweeping across the sky behind huge rock cliffs. Tomorrow will be a good day of sending for sure.
Devi's HeadThe first nations people in the area named the mountain and made offerings on its ledges probably through fear. Prominent flat topped mountains that resembled large heads from a distance were thought to be inhabited by spirits or sacred by the Plains Indians. Chief Mountain in Montana and Devils Tower in Wyoming are other similar examples. First climbed in 1925 by the West Ridge by guides Edward Feuz jr. and J.W.A. Hickson. The Ghost, Alberta.

A pleasant surprise Before this day I had stumbled upon two moose in the Rockies but I guess I should hang around at Spray lakes more often because three casually walked by me not being too bothered at all by the rapid clicks of the camera.
