Sofa Mountain, Waterton Lakes National Park


I love Sofa Mountain anytime, but early winter it really stands out. There is a lot of snow in those there mountains. October 4, 2018 and most years there may be a light dusting of snow, or maybe some frost but this year the snow is cold and deep. Great for building the snow pack and for pictures, not so great for people or animals trying to get through it.

With the hot summer it was nice to see some snow and moisture starting but even when you know you need it this early it is hard to take!

Banff & Kananaskis Fall 2018

I wanted to take a “fall” trip to Banff and Kananaskis for a number of shoots that I planned to do.  Well the trip was more like a winter trip than fall and I never got any of the shots that I went for.  I did manage to get chased away from an area that I wanted to shoot by a warden, something about no camping and well I did fall asleep while I was waiting for the snow flurries to stop falling – which they never did all night!!!! Still had a great time.  I can tell you that some of the back roads in southern Alberta are not fit for driving this time of year.  Some MAJOR ruts and challenges!

Small World – even in Saskatchewan

While I was sitting in the van having some supper a crazy couple pealed into the parking lot in their passenger van 🙂 . The driver got out and was seeing if he needed bug spray before heading out to shoot. As he turned towards me we both said “Mike” at the same time. It was a couple that I knew from Lethbridge that had moved to Calgary a number of years ago and they were stopping there for the night to shoot. When you consider the size of Canada running into someone in a remote part of Saskatchewan is weird!   I have to say that the sand hills do seem to be a popular place considering how remote it is!!
