Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” 🕊 Psalm 91 1-2 📸 @ricardomiller1993 Edit by me.

A nice sunset session I did last year while in Port Elgin. I brought my husband to this secret spot the first time we came down and been bringing him ever since. Truth be told, it's not really a secret spot, but it's a familiar one where I always went to watch the sunset while growing up. I say it's secret because mostly it's only known from the locals but also because it's one of my little happy places. 💙 .
Stillness descends over Maligne Lake and Spirit Island after a stormy day of canoeing in which we had a mix of rain, hail, sunshine, and snow. Kodak used a picture of Spirit Island taken by Peter Gales as part of a showcase for Kodack Colorama, that was displayed prominently in New York City’s Grand Central Terminal in 1960. Kodack Colorama was leading the new phenomenon of consumer colour film at the time and since then the island has become one of the iconic vistas of the Canadian Rockies. The ‘island’ is in fact a small peninsula which is only cut off by water briefly after large spring snowmelts. We spent three days canoe camping around the lake, and the colour of the water in the southern end of the lake really needs to be seen to be believed.
Being one of the most popular back country trips in the Rockies, it can be notoriously difficult to book a camping spot on the lake. We were lucky that the ice melted off the lake a couple of weeks early this year and Parks Canada released an extra week of bookings which were previously withheld. We quickly booked at the last minute, and were amazingly the only people in the campsite near Spirit Island on the first night we camped. With the ice having only been off the lake for a week, we were able experience Spirit Island all to ourselves. The next morning as we paddled to explore the Sothern end of the lake we did not see another vessel.
Maligne Lake sits at an elevation of 1,675 metres (5,495 feet), and has a maximum depth of 97 metres (318 feet). The deep water temperatures in the lake never rise above 4°C (39°F) even at the peak of summer; so it’s not a lake you can afford to capsize your canoe in. This shot was taken just after sunset.

@xm_studios Bane, reimagined as part of the Samurai Batman line. I saw the unpainted prototype at STGCC last year. At that time it was hard to imagine the final look...but, imagine no more. This piece goes up for pre-order June 20th...oh, and it’s a worldwide license. (First two photos are XM’s product images, the unpainted photo is mine).
The sun is out, which I was completely unaware of happening today, so silly me wore a black knit (and I mean heavy knit) turtle neck sweater and jeans. Today is a day of shoulder shrugs and bad decisions but 🤷♀️
