Chasing Aurora – Sorry, Steve, you’re actually a Sub Auroral Arc!

Aurora Chasing and Sub Auroral Arc Sub Auroral Arcs- Not so New Aurora boreali and Sub Auroral Arcs- For most Canadians, night time means winding down, getting ready for bed and calling it a night. Not so with a passionate group of northern lights chasers, scattered throughout Alberta, Manitoba, and BC and even some dedicated northern US folks too.

Sharing Earth with Animals

Home from another photo drive in the rockies, I realize today just how lucky we are to share this earth with our animal friends. As someone who also loves photographing wildlife, animals, insects, birds, I am ever-conscious of making the most of my surroundings here in Alberta. Being out near Canmore yesterday, I ventured out to check out the spring offerings in nature, and hopefully capture some wildlife too. I got lucky a couple times!   […]
