Skogafoss, Water flows far and falls high, hitting the ground below with power you can feel in your chest. Mist floating around like clouds on the ground, a double rainbow on the sunniest of days and birds that call the cliff sides home.
Just after entering into Alberta, windows down warm sun beating down and some country music blasting on the radio the "Alberta Winder " presents itself... the camera is brought up as the line work catches my eye... the image is made. - Shutter Click. — at Canada Alberta.
Hearing the water rush down between the rocks.. seeing the sun peak out just over the trees... the fresh smell of nature in the air, theres nothing like it. Just off the road and back into the woods a bit, stood the tall tress with the river coming down from the mountain tops and large rocks bathing in it's freshness ... I set the tripod low, place a filter on the lens, focus and the shutter clicks... Image made - Shutter Click. — at Beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
Mist in the mountains as the sun begins to tuck itself behind them forcing it's light up into the sky, the mountains shadow the land. A Fresh lake at the bottom of the kings sits still in all it's glory while the pine trees whistle a song in the Jasper winds. Pulling off the side of the road, the layers of trees, lake, mountains and clouds catches my eye and the image is made - Shutter Click. — at Jasper National Park.

Deep in the mountains the giants sleep in the warm summer sun covered by blankets of pine trees. The river is low and exposes it's soul for everyone to see. The image is made - Shutter Click. — at Canada Alberta.
A shy sun tries to hide behind the mountains, but it's brightness gives away it's location spreading beautiful light around the giants down onto the clear, fresh water below. The spread of the sun and the light it creates made this image into what it is and why I had to stop to make this image - Shutter Click.
The lands are flat, the sun is bright and the heat is intense. Mills, Sheds, Grains and Trains as far as the eye can see. The air is fresh the breeze is weak but there's a calm beauty about it all. Off to the side of the road, in a field all alone, nothing around for miles sits a shed watching the few clouds drift by in the sky. The image is made - Shutter Click. — in Saskatchewan.
Later in the day, the sun begins to drop creating a golden light that falls over the land. Out in the field of wheat swaying in the winds, kissed by the sun sits an old barn watching over the precious crops. The image was made - Shutter Click. — at Saskachewan.
Winding roads through the mountains on the way to Tofino lies a lake high in the mountains. Not far off the road the sun sets while wooden pillars stand tall in the warm lake protecting it's waters. Smooth rocks in the foreground glistening in the setting sun make the approach slippery. After taking my shoes off, rolling up my pants and wading out into the warm water to reflect on this amazing journey; the camera and tripod were set up, the filter was placed on the lens, the focus and frame was set... the image was made - Shutter Click. — at Beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
The road winds through the mountains, around the last corner out pops the small village of VIK, Iceland. The road drops down into the town, but before that this church stands tall on a hill top over looking the ocean. The sun lighting the sky in the background like fire, silhouetting the church.

A strong wind blows in off the ocean, surprisingly it wasn't to cold.. rain in the air and waves crashing onto the black sand beach, these three peaks stand tall. Looking out into the ocean as the birds circle far and wide. Blue and white tones mix with a small amount of reds, greens and yellows on the peaks to create a nice pallet. Waiting for the waves in the foreground to show their white rolls, the image was made - Shutter Click.
Sitting waterside, reflecting on the journey that is unfolding... way in the distance, across the water the giants stand watching me as I watch them. Their reflections in the water let me know they are real. Soft blues paint the pallet as the blue sky reflects into the blue water creating a beautiful colour gradient through out the image.... the image was made - Shutter Click. — in Iceland.
