This past year, I have been lucky to travel through the South Pacific with my family, to the Northwest Territories for a workshop with Dave Brosha, and to Saint Lucia for some personal time away. No matter where I go, I am always attracted to water, to the unique character of the shoreline, features in the sea that surprise me, and the interplay of light and reflection.

Springtime Stars

I went out last night with the sole intention to shoot time-lapse material for Mountains In Motion at the Hoodoos near Banff.
