10 Days in the Canadian Rockies
For my latest trip I flew into Calgary for a solo adventure in the Canadian Rockies. The main part of the Canadian Rockies extends from Jasper in the North down to Banff about 230km further South through what has to be considered one of the most beautiful drives in the world. I then took an extra jaunt down past Calgary to the US border to visit Waterton Lakes National Park.
I got so lucky with the weather, and due to some awesome planning on my part and sublime coincidental weather patterns on the part of mother nature, I managed to hit each spot I visited at pretty much just the right moment.
Most days consisted of getting up at around 5am and driving for an hour to some remote (and some not so remote) location often with a short hike in the dark to find my spot. Then 14 hours later after a lot more driving/hiking/scrambling and scouting for locations, I'd roll back to my hotels to impatiently load the days shoot onto my laptop ready to prep them for this blog.
It was really bizarre to show up back to work in a busy city after spending 10 days with barely a word of english spoken, save the occasional whoop of delight as I nailed a shot or ran into some wildlife.
I hope you enjoy the images.
