Moraine Lake at sunrise with no crowds. (And Consolation lakes to the left) The rockpile looked tiny from this vantage point and we couldn’t even see the hundreds of photographers there. A great adventure with @hannahkeiver and Oesa. Worth the never ending climb in the dead of night...and the bitter cold wind at the top.
Art prints by @alpine_anna coming soon!

This shot has not been edited at all. It’s kind of my favourite photo ever. This was when we were alllllmost at the top of nub peak. ⠀
I was huffing and puffing, felt like I was dying. Had just come around the corner to see this view. You can see it but it’s really snowing here, I turned my back to the snow and set my aperture and shutter speed and quickly turned around to focus and capture this before the snow got my lens all wet⠀
You can kind of see the clouds coming in in this shot, those are the clouds that engulfed us in the shot with Colby and I walking towards the mist with my dress flowing. So this was taken right before ⠀
Bec, Andrew and Colby were already at the top so I made sure to sneak in this quick shot as I knew I would be forced out of my warm shell in a matter of minutes ⠀
I want to print this and throw it up on my wall, but my ISO is a little too high so I feel like it wouldn’t look the way I want it too. That’s just one more reason I need a full frame camera 😂⠀
Optimism. It's the word of the day. @nimsdai and @mingma_david_sherpa have a lot of that stuff. Keep pushing!
A rock, a tree, a beast, an animal or a human all are same energies manifesting in million different ways. As human beings we are just blessed to be conscious with our manifestation !

Early morning flight called for an afternoon adventure. Bow Valley beauty from Piran 💎✨
Second guessing life choices when you find yourself not on the top and on the wrong side of the mountain for sunrise. I'll run faster next time @seymourruns Thanks for the 📸 and the great day.
Do you think he's thinking about doing a mischief? Or good boi thoughts only?
& porsches getting towed on the rez. Was it a good night? Or was it trespassing on Federal-Crown Land? #StoneyNakoda #Treaty7 #Alberta
oh yeah and I gots gastro but 1 more day to recover and back at it.
Pretty Views !

If only every day could be spent jumping in the lake, doing head stands, and eating bagels ☀️☺️
When we stare at our goals every day, in written form, we’re more likely to work on them each and every day, whether it’s one big step or one small step, it all counts.
There’s always a little element of fear when I write a new goal down, so here’s my new one:
I am going to be walking the Larapinta Trail solo in Alice Springs. I have begun the initial stages of research & planning and my next step of action will be to buy a one way flight to Alice springs once I lock in the dates.
My training now has an even deeper purpose, and that’s why I work hard behind the scenes: to feel empowered to make more ambitious outdoor goals ↟

If tangerines are divisible by 7 then what is the sum of a spaghetti stained t-shirt?
Lady aurora dancing over the Colin range during one of the best evenings of my life. It is times like these that remind me that I need to take the time away from always working to make these kinds of memories while in such a gorgeous place. Sometimes with the hustle and bustle it can be tough to take a moment to just appreciate everything around you. I appreciate my rad friends that make this area even better, the ever changing weather in the mountains, the ability to live and work in a gorgeous area of the world, and so much more! What do you appreciate?
Can't believe this is real! I always looked on at the cascade waterfall everytime I drove to banff, but for the first time, I got up and close on the hike out from Mother's Day Buttress!
Btw that climb is probably my favorite beginner trad climb, easy route finding, good gear and fun climbing. The walk off is not bad too. We did get lost but I think I can handle it next time 😂

Aurora from the top of the Sphinx looking out over Egypt & Scarab Lakes! (2019)
Recent adventures lined up well with visits to the top of Grand Pharoah for the Milky Way and the Sphinx for the auroral spike in the AM on Aug 5th. Magical back to back nights in the backcountry! The wildflowers were amazingly abundant and on par with the mosquitoes but still paled in comparison to Tonquin Valley mozzies 😂 .....and the pack rats showed up in the usual spots on cue (almost lost a full strap this time after letting the guard down for a minute).
Problems on Everest? Can't walk anymore? If you're super lucky, a team (most likely Sherpas) will rig you up and haul you down the mountain like this.
This is from a rescue on Everest spring 2019.
Sherpas go to extra lengths to make sure people get off the mountain alive. Everest climbing wouldn't be possible in its current format without them. Mucho respecto. 🙏
Looking forward to getting back to the mountains this weekend #kananaskis #kananaskiscountry #canmorekananaskis
Tomorrow I will head down to @idrefjall to shot the @idrefjallmara with @brockmanvisuals and @kollektiveproductions I am hoping for some more reindeer action!

Lost my hiking buddies to hangover and softball so I opted for a solo bush whack up Limestone Mountain. Would NOT do again, except I met a couple on the trail who said they followed a different route up and managed to bypass a lo of the forest

Photo from earlier this year, from a long day trip into a favourite mountain area of mine, just after the snow was melting at altitude! Great spot to stand on a ridge and look down on a lake, who else loves these mountain views? 📸🇨🇦☀️🏞🧗🏻♀️
@outdoorphotomag @mefototripods @nisiglobal @explorecanada @outdoorresearch @sonyalpha
Mornings like these are the reason I picked up a camera in the first place. I'm off into the deep Alberta mountains today and I'm hoping for good light! See everyone in a few days.
A bit of snow this weekend! It’s probably all melted by now but it was a nice surprise. I’m looking forward to some more snowy peaks. Summer is awesome but every time I look at the mountains it feels like something is missing
Good things come to a end.
But memories still remains in our hearts ❤.
We will miss Zermatt every day and we will dream about its amazing Mountains.
Here there are just some of the best moments spent by this gorgeous Valley.
And this is our promise: We will come back on Fall in the Matterhorn Kingdom 🇨🇭 #yourshotphotographer #worldbestshot #insta_mountains #loves_mountains #bestmountainartists

Happy Wednesday! Get outside, get moving, touch the dirt or sand or swim in the waves. #waterfallwednesday
Fireweed forever - was super stoked to see these beauties on my Newfoundland travels
*Breaking Through the clouds*
Took a Helicopter trip with @alpinehelicopters the other week. Got a Close up view of Hope *little sister* Charity *middle sister* and Faith *big sister* the three sisters as we passed by.
@sonyimages @sonyalpha @alpinehelicopters
I can't believe how incredible this shot is! Full of wonder and magic. Feels like something out of thelord of the rings. 😁
Thanks @carreradawn for being super awesome and making this shot happen!

Morning in the Rockies. Beautiful light and gorgeous wildflowers. Lots of Fleabane and Arnica plus Louswort and Paintbrush.
The minor amount of smoke in the air adds to the mood. Whitehorn Mountain.

I have a fever, and the only cure for that fever is more cowbell..... I mean mountains, waterfalls and helicopters. Ooohhhhh looks like my fever will be gone tomorrow ;) But I will be gone for the next few days, and then I shall be back, with colour images this time? Or stick with black and white?

Running, Falling, chasing Dream's, being wild !
Alberta Canada 2019.
Yesterday I drove out to Banff in the morning for a day of climbing. The clouds were sitting very low around the front ranges and looked very pretty. It made realize I have been very bad at getting out for sunrises and catching moments like this one at Berg Lake.

Since I’m a sucker for lakes, here’s another angle I see these lakes from. It’s hard not to like these views from every direction.
I was lucky to get out on Sunday with these awesome couple. Through mosquitos, bushwhacking and I was not feeling good, it was all worth it, it always is. #choosemountains
It’s not always sunny here in the Rockies, but that shouldn’t stop you playing outside ☔️ We’re away for another few days up to Jasper National Park and @alpineclubcan Sydney Vallance Hut! Nothing like a cosy night be the fire with some cheese and wine in the Backcountry! 🔥 🧀 🍷 🍇
See you at the weekend folks! 👋🏽
It’s great to have such spots in your backyard that you can often go to to escape the city life. The popularity of this spot means that one needs to visit it in odd hours in order to gain access to the parking lot, the charm of Moraine is always worth that trip up

So I posted this yesterday, apologies for the repost if you saw it, but I accidentally posted an old version without some of my more recent editing work on it, especially in color and light. I kept looking at the image and thinking it looked wrong and wondering if Instagram messed it up, and then I realized that somehow the old version had stuck around on my Android device when I thought I'd deleted it. And then I discovered that, in addition, Instagram *is* messing it up. Instagram messes with some of the colors when it processes the upload for some reason (and yes, I am exporting the image in sRGB). But anyway, this is as close at it will look.
If you didn't see the caption before, this is the 4th view from the same campsite as my last three photos. It's still unbelievable to me that such different mountain views and compositions were all from one location, but this view of Mt. Baker was my favorite. Actually when I arrived at the campsite, Baker was completely obscured by clouds, and I had no idea what it would look like with the valleys and so on, so it really blew me away as the clouds cleared.
And as I mentioned in the post yesterday, the image is also a "squashed" version for Instagram. I'm also including the original as a second image, since I do like it more.
Still mornings in beautiful places, waiting for those sunrise colours come to life.
Plein air sketching in Squamish is hard to beat.
Do you think there’s just one mountain whose name is Regina, calls all the shots, and makes them all wear pink?
Homemade filter holder fail haha 🤦♂️. A little bit of vignette on that sucker 😉
Beautiful morning at spray lakes though! After a very heavy storm Friday night woke up to some clearing clouds and frosted tips
First ascent on this day, 1980.08.20; Mount Everest (8848m) solo, by Reinhold Messner.
On 8 May 1978, Reinhold Messner stood with Peter Habeler on the summit of Mount Everest; the first men known to climb Everest without the use of supplemental oxygen. Prior to this ascent it was disputed whether this was possible at all. Messner and Habeler were members of an expedition led by Wolfgang Nairz along the southeast ridge to the summit.
Two years later, on 20 August 1980, Messner again stood atop the highest mountain in the world. This time, too, the ascent was made without supplementary oxygen. For this solo climb, he chose the northeast ridge to the summit, where he crossed above the North Col in the North Face to the Norton Couloir and became the first man to climb through this steep gorge to the summit. Messner decided spontaneously during the ascent to use this route to bypass the exposed northeast ridge. Prior to this solo ascent, he had not set up a camp on the mountain.
