Spent the last week looking down at the Rockies from the sky. So, obviously I was itching for a hike. An easy 12km turned into 18km thanks to a few wrong turns and some random exploring 😂
Not a bad way to spend a Thursday!

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company...a church....a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude...I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you...we are in charge of our attitudes.
People ask me why I sacrifice so much to travel. First of all, travel isn’t expensive. There are ways to budget and do it cheaply (I’ve gone to Europe for only $1000 for an entire week). I am smart, and I budget, and I do it wisely. But more importantly, I travel because I want to experience life. I could sit around and wallow in my circumstances, but I’d rather look forward and live ❤️
Proof that Canada spoils you with views. This wasn’t even off the Icefields Parkway, just a dirt road on the way to Assiniboine Provincial Park.
@joanna.travels and I were just driving along this rather lonely road when all of a sudden the most incredible sunset scene opened up to our right. Needless to say, we stayed until it was done and ended up reaching the trailhead in Assiniboine just as it was getting dark. What followed was another restful night spent half-reclined in Joanna’s trusty Subaru Crosstrek.
Aerial photography is a thrilling chase of patterned landscapes, new perspectives and endless composition possibilities as you float across the world below. I've just published a guide on how to plan an aerial photography mission; the gear I recommend and some creative tips + camera settings. You'll find the link in my stories 📷
This shot was taken during a scenic heli ride in Canmore, Alberta and captures a glacier up close after a huge dumping of unseasonal snow.
Taken with the 40-150mm f2.8 M.Zuiko @olympus_au PRO lens, my go to for detail shots! #olympusinspired
