    … I like your use of depth-of-field … and the Black and white shots … plus i like how you still throw in and enjoy regular “candid” shots as well!

    Inspiring! I just got my first DSLR within the last year & I can hardly handle my extreme levels of love for it. Photos like yours have only furthered my excitement! πŸ™‚

    Love the photos! Especially your May 13th, 2012 inside the caves. But do you carry all your camera equipment with you when you hike? Or do you select the ones you feel you will use most and only take them?

    Really cool. Love the rock colours. Rock is usually quite boring to photograph, but this is really really neat.

    Gorgeous, gorgeous pictures that truly capture the majesty and mesmerizing beauty of the natural world. And the ones of you guys were fun too =)

    I’m loving your blog…definitely following. How did you come across my lowly little blog? And obviously my nature photography (some of which is posted on my blog) is amateur, but what do you think? Be honest, my main interest is writing, especially fiction, so I have very thick skin πŸ˜‰

    Squirrel shitting in your backpack and stealing an M&M…priceless! I simply cannot wait for more pictures. You have just created the urge to go to Canada. I’ve been twice already, but never to Calgary. Ugh, now I have to choose between going back to England, taking the kid to New York for the first time, or Calgary. Curses!!!!

    Hey! Thanks for following my blog – these photos are incredible! They have made me think three things 1) I need to visit the Canadian Rockies 2) Future travel should be planned around hikes and 3) I kind of wish I owned the series with the squirrel – everyone needs to beware the plotting ninja squirrel.

    My trip to Canada may be awhile off, but I’m following so I keep the motivation alive.

    WOW! Absolutely stunning photographs, not to mention all the fun you must have had. I am now, and will always be, your BIGGEST FAN! You took my breath away with each and every photograph. Even the cutest photo of the squirrel was amazing, who knew they liked M&M’s?

    Seeing your photos only makes me want to take a 2 week bicycling trip up to Canada even more!! It’s absolutely beautiful and I’m so glad you shared these pictures. It lifts the spirits and sends the imagination soaring! <3

    Lovely photos: interesting range of action, portrait, wildlife and scenery. If I was younger and fitter I’d even envy you, hiking around that rugged countryside. Instead, I’ll sit at home and enjoy your blog.
    I hope you’re enjoying mine, too, in a very different way:-)
    Keep on trekking.

    I love your blog and it brings back memories of my only hike in the Canadian Rockies for 10 days, caught some salmon like trout that fed the whole camp, got lost, lost 10 pounds, was in God’s country and it changed my life. I am a huge fan!!!
