My encounter with this Momma Bear will be a highlight of this year. Sometimes it's hard to avoid a close encounter with a bear when out in wild places. I heard crackling in the woods and I realized this bear and her cubs were very close by...too close. I could make out their dark outlines and heard her give a warning hiss as she looked out at me. I listened and respected her space by moving away. I then waited and watched a nearby opening and to my delight all three came into view! I watched them fill their bellies with the fruits of the Estuary, such a beautiful thing. #protectourestuary#nikon_canada#sigma#britishcolumbia#fauna#wildplanet#squamish#canada#sharecangeo#natgeoyourshot#naturephotography

On my last post where I photographed the cabin at Lake Louise, the sky was pretty plain for my standards, but out of the corner of my eye I noticed a ton of colour exploding on the reflection on the water. I turn around and lo and behold, the sky above the Fairmont was on fire! I hustled over to the open water and took this photo from a perspective that I had never done before. Moral of the story- scan your surroundings always. They might surprise you! 📸Nikon D7500 @nikoncanada#nikon_canada

Although it's been a relatively mild December so far, I'm super excited to break away from the snow and ice this upcoming weekend to head off to Palm Springs, California, on an assignment with @flairairlines for a few days, catching the inaugural Flair flight from Edmonton to Palm Springs.
I'll be showcasing what Palm Springs has to offer to Edmonton and area residents with both locally curated events, as well as my own photography adventures in the area, as a great getaway option to escape the cold climes of Winter on the cheap. I'm bringing along my pal @shane_turgeon, which always leads to great photography adventures.
Check out my intastories starting on Sunday to follow along with this adventure, and make sure to follow @flairairlines to see some amazing flight deals in your area, as they launch to several new US destinations from Western Canada.
