Abraham Lake

April 6, 2019 | Filed Under News, Personal | Leave a Comment 

Abraham Lake is a body of water on the upper part of the North Saskatchewan River, just off the David Thompson highway.  It is a man-made body of water that was created in 1972 with the construction of the Bighorn Dam.  Now, because the area was flooded without removing any vegetation, an amazing natural phenomenon occurs…the creation of methane bubbles.   They are created when bacteria in the water eat dead plant and animal matter, and then, as a result of “digestion,” release methane. In the summer months, the methane simply rises to the surface; but in the winter, these bubbles become temporarily frozen in time.   A couple of weekends ago, a couple of friends of mine and I went to check out the scene.   With skates in hand, we slid our way down the ice onto the lake and then spent some time skating around on the  lake.  Unfortunately, there was a lot of snow and not a lot of bubbles.  It was still pretty amazing though.  Maybe next year for even more bubbles?

We can’t even begin to explain what an amazing time we had with these two in Jasper this past weekend. It was a perfect day out at Spirit Island to witness Glenna and Alex’s ever-lasting bond to each other. Bone-soaking rain and a friendly bear encounter on the way back to town rounded out a great day on Maligne Lake. Little did we know that the party was only getting started.
Thanks you guys for including us and making the day soooo amazing. You both rock our world….

Christmas 2014 – Chelsea, Quebec.

December 31, 2014 | Filed Under Lifestyle, News, Personal | Leave a Comment 

Christmas in the Gatineau.

Great to be back home to be with family. Mom experienced a stroke in October and thus remains in a rehab clinic until she is able to return home. We were able to have her home over Christmas for two days. As sad as it may seem, to see family simply step up and look after her through instinct was probably the best Christmas present ever.

Nadine and I were able to sneak away for a couple days to the Wakefield Inn, not too far from here. A great chance to connect and celebrate our first 10 years together.

Mountain River

We were honored to guide on the Mountain River again this summer!  This fast flowing, beautiful river runs from the Mackenzie Mountains down to the Mackenzie River, near Norman Wells, NWT.

This is just a glimpse into the fantastic trip that we had!  Enjoy.

A Personal Easter in Banff!

Jamie and I have been pretty busy lately.    Normally, Easter weekend is about spending time with family and friends and the meaning behind the day.  This weekend, for various reasons, we decided to go somewhere inspirational and spend it with only each other (for the most part).

As photographers, we spend a lot of our time documenting the moments of other people’s lives (sometimes at the expense of our  own lives).  We are also always on the hunt; constantly looking for that great shot.  And this weekend, we got some great images.

But mostly, we focused on our time together. We really took the time to soak in the beauty of our surroundings, not just look for great images to take.   And that made the time our time together more precious.

I hope you enjoy these images.
