Goosing Around

I was shooting this scene when suddenly these guys decided to show up. A nice little addition.


November 28

I was eager to take my new 70-200mm f2.8 VRII lens out for a test drive this morning so I headed to an area where I regularly see Moose, however on my way there I noticed the sky slowly starting to turn pink on the horizon. I knew that where I was heading was not really ideal for capturing a sunrise shot so I made a quick decision to head to Vermillion Lakes, where I knew I could get something. Unfortunately I arrived just as the initial light show had died down, but I was fairly confident that it would have a second wind, so I decided to set-up anyway. By the time I had hunted down the shot I was after the sky began to light up again. I didn’t get to take the 70-200mm for a spin but came away with a half decent shot of Mt Rundle from Vermillion Lakes.


Bulls N Boarding

I decided to head out for a morning shoot last weekend before going snowboarding. It turned out to be a ripper morning. I spend about half an hour following these Bull Elk along a frozen inlet within the Vermillion Lakes area of Banff National Park. I actually felt fairly comfortable being so close to the Elk. That was until one of them decided to bloody ice skate straight toward me. It was entertaining to see, but once he made it over the other side I had a feeling I had overstayed my welcome. So off to the ski hill I went where I was blessed with waist deep powder. A perfect morning 🙂
