. Last night's stormy sunset in Wetaskiwin. I had to maneuver about 25km around this storm to get into position for this shot. I used the rain core which was being unleashed over Wetaskiwin as a light diffuser for the beautiful sunset light, and then managed to catch a lightning strike as well. Such a great evening out in the country south of Edmonton.
. A typical summer scene on the prairies as a storm passes over a farm in the Calmar, Alberta area yesterday. Not much bite to this storm as it never quite made it to severe warned status, however it drop pea sized hail between here and Beaumont, and I did measure some wind gusts upwards of 70 km/h. Thanks for looking!
. A short time-lapse video made up of over 1000 photos of the lightning storm that hit Edmonton, Alberta on the night of July 12, 2019.
. More lightning today, this time from over a farm near Waldeck, Saskatchewan, as we watched this storm start to die off in the evening hours, which at one point was tornado warned. Shooting on location with @shane_turgeon.
. Such a fantastic lightning show over the city of Edmonton last night. This is a single frame from a 1400 shot timelapse. Swipe right ➡️ to see the whole scene!
. Dont forget the telephoto. When photographing landscapes, the first instinct is to use the widest lens to fit in as much of the scene as possible. However, a super telephoto lens is a valuable tool to isolate some of those landscapes. All of these images were shot using the @nikoncanada 200-500 mm. 1) Icefields Parkway - Alberta 2) Dorset - Ontario 3) Grande Cache - Alberta 4) Edmonton - Alberta 5) Jasper - Alberta 6) Bracebridge - Ontario 7) Cochrane - Alberta 8) Jasper - Alberta Which is your favourite? Do you use a telephoto for landscapes, let me know below.
. A series of storm photos from a chase earlier this season. This storm reached severe warned status as I tracked it from Olds to Drumheller. Which is your favourite image of the 4?
. A supercell over a blooming canola field in Southern Alberta at sunset from a previous season. Great to see the canola blooming all over the province while I was out tracking some storm systems yesterday. Such a great time of the year! Shot on the @nikoncanada D750 with 20mm prime lens. f8 | ISO 100 | 1/125s
. An early Summer reflection scene at Emerald Lake, British Columbia, with a possible circumhorizontal arc (not to be confused with iridescent clouds) and a cheeky little lenticular cloud on the far left. Taken recently during a private workshop with @ayegtraveller. Check out Monique's awesome work, she has really come a long way!
. Happy Canada 🇨🇦 Day! I've been very fortunate to photograph a lot of incredible places in this amazing country over the past year.

. A 1000 frame timelapse I stitched together from a tornado warned storm over Hazlet, Saskatchewan, West of Swift Current a few days ago. This system never did produce a tornado, but I do love a good shelf cloud. Enjoy! Such a great couple of days exploring that corner of the province with @shane_turgeon.
. A sunset in Kananaskis Country, AB, from around a month ago while staying at the beautiful @mountengadine lodge. One of my favourite areas in the entire province.
