Climbing and Photographing the Ten Peaks

This summer, I climbed the tenth and final summit of the famous “Ten Peaks” that tower over Moraine Lake. I didn’t originally set out to climb all ten, but after I completed the first few it grew into a side project to climb the rest and photograph from their summits.

Initially I had so many great intentions for this traditional end-of-year post – thoughts on the state of photography, the trends of the photo business, what I’ve learned this year, what I hope to implement in 2014. Then we ended up moving houses here in Banff between Christmas and New Year’s, and with only a few hours left to 2013, and just barely enough room to type among all the boxes in this new office, I might just keep the post very photo-heavy.
