Mt. Baldy.

I started hiking during late fall last year and I’ve come to a conclusion that I’m addicted and have to do some more. This time Chloe, Natasha and I ventured out to Kananaskis on a beautiful (but windy), spring day to hike Mt. Baldy.

After a 0.7 km walk through the woods, we realized we took the wrong trail head and started the trail for Baldy Pass - apparently different from the Mt. Baldy hike. We turned around and found the proper trail head a bit further up the highway. This time we definitely knew we were on the right path as the trail proved to be all business and went straight up the mountain at a fair incline.

We made it up in just over an hour for some spectacular views over Barrier Lake.

Sunrise at Vermillion Lakes + Meeting New People

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this…but here goes!

Earlier, last week Andrew (@andrew_wiesner) contacted me on Instagram to shoot, as he was making a quick weekend trip to visit from Pittsburg, PA. We decided to hit up Vermillion Lakes for sunrise and meet up with a few other photographers (Zach @northern.fellow, Mike @mikesugianto, & Sonia @soniabrovko) from Calgary. I picked up Andrew from his Air BnB at around 4:45 am and took off to Banff.

We made it there in good time and soon met up with Sonia and Zach. Mike joined us shortly afterwards to sit back and enjoy the perfect view as the clouds lit up.

After, we casually ventured around to both Two Jack Lake and Lake Minnewanka. I’ll let the photos explain the rest.

Banff.

I headed out to Banff for a day to explore and shoot some photos, hoping to find some new places and good light.

I started early in the a.m. to catch a splendid sunrise at Mt. Norquay, looking over the town of Banff. Afterwards, I headed further west to Castle Junction for some quick shots of the towering Castle Mountain. This spot would be ideal for sunset on another day.

After grabbing lunch at a little cafe in Lake Louise, I hiked up to the Lake Agnes Teahouse. The entire way I followed just a single set of footprints from one other person who must have decided to trek through all the snow to get up there. The hike through the deep snow was worth it to arrive at the teahouse. It was calm and peaceful, but at the same time, it had a eerie atmosphere due to the howling gusts of wind, combined with the boarded up and empty teahouse.
