. 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.

. Looking back to the end of May for this one. Part of an epic road trip with some great photgrapher friends @shane_turgeon, @chjunghansphoto & @leonardbevaart. After arriving at Moraine Lake in the dark and shooting first light, I decided to peel off solo for Lake Louise to catch some decent light there. I saw this scene in my rear view mirror, so I pulled off at the next roadside pullout to capture the moment.

. Continuing with the year in review - From a beautiful Spring morning earlier this year at Vermilion Lakes, Banff National Park. The rising sun hit the Rundle gap here and created crepuscular rays that shone into the atmosphere like some kind of spotlight.

. Electric Skies. Lightning storms were a common theme this past summer, especially daytime lightning. Both of these images are one second single exposures, no stacking or manipulation. The density of strikes in these storms was incredible. Both of these shots were taken on the @nikoncanada D750 with 24-120mm F4 lens at similar settings 1s/ f14-f16/ISO 200. I wrote some tips on how to shoot daytime lightning that you can find archived in my highlighted stories on my profile.

. Continuing with some fave scenes from 2018, June 9th brought a series of incredible summer storms across Eastern Alberta and Western Saskatchewan. Tornado warned systems popped up, creating powerful rotating mesocyclones, and later on shelf clouds that stretched for dozens of miles. This ended up being an 18 hour day that stretched across 2 provinces. I spent the majority of June and July storm chasing this year, but this first one ended up being one of my favourite chases. Swipe to see the whole series, which one is your favorite? . . . . . . . . . . . . #explorealberta#nikon_canada#brmblife#opcmag#nisifilters#worldprime#dolicatripods#exploresask#saskatchewan#ImagesofCanada#earthpix#nakedplanet#earthofficial#igdaily#master_gallery#earth_shotz#nikonnofilter#ig_shotz#sharecangeo#nature#alberta#canada#allbeauty_addiction#sunset#explorecanada#progradedigital#storm#shareyourweather#itsamazingoutthere#totescanadian

. As 2018 draws to a close, I will be sharing some of my favourite moments from this past year over the next few weeks in no particular order. First up is an image of Castle Mountain in Banff National Park in January. It was a bone chilling -32C (-26F) on this morning, and just getting setup for this shot took a lot of energy and work. I was actually based in Canmore on this morning, but was socked in with overcast conditions. I consulted my weather app and saw a patch of clouds clearing much further west, which opened up some nice golden light for this image. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #explorealberta#nikon_canada#brmblife#cangeotravel#opcmag#nisifilters#worldprime#dolicatripods#sunrise#banff#jasper#BeautifulDestinations#earthpix#nakedplanet#earthofficial#igdaily#master_gallery#earth_shotz#nikonnofilter#ig_shotz#sharecangeo#nature#alberta#canada#allbeauty_addiction#sunset#explorecanada#progradedigital#banffnationalpark#mybanff

. An unexpected 22° Sun Halo over the North Saskatchewan River mud flats this past weekend. The river was freezing up right before our eyes, with thunderous cracks and churns as the ice heaved and settled. One of my favourite areas to explore in the David Thompson corridor of the front ranges of the Canadian Rockies.
