Photo of the Week: Kananaskis Waterfall

I honestly have no idea what this waterfall is called.  On the highway that leads into Kananaskis Country from the Trans-Canada Highway, this waterfall is right along the road.  In fact, it’s almost a little bit of a strange slice of nature.  Not only is it right alongside the road, but there’s also a little barrier and a park bench set up in front of it.  No trail, nothing. Just a bench staring off at the waterfall. My...

Lake Louise: Photos of the Week

There’s not much left to be said or seen of Lake Louise is there?  I’m willing to bet this is the most photographed scene in all of Alberta, if not Canada (well, maybe second to Niagara Falls).  And, of course, there’s reason as to why it’s so often photographed: it’s stunning. The truth is that I didn’t spend much time photographing Lake Louise, it’s been shot and shot again.  And besides, I much prefer waking up to Moraine Lake and...

Photos of the Week: Canmore, Alberta

I spent lots of time in Canmore as a young lad.  My grandparent’s lived out there for years, and visiting was always a highlight.  Since then, Canmore has changed quite a bit.  The highway leading into town is now coated in hotels, condos have seemed to spring out of nowhere, and loads of restaurants and gift shops speckle main street. Still, I’m always very impressed when I come into Canmore, Canada  I love how it still manages to...

Manhattan Skyline

I can’t believe the Africa articles are over!  Though I’ve been back in North America for over a month now I guess posting this really means it’s over.  It’s a bit of a weird sensation.  On one hand, a great adventure is over.  On another hand, I have a lot to look forward to both in North America and when I get to Europe (hint: I have a big surprise for you in Amsterdam). Almost any time I fly back to North...

Beacon Island Resort: Photos of the Week

As you’ve seen over the past couple weeks on the travel blog, I’ve had the chance to stay in some pretty amazing hotels in South Africa.  Almost everywhere I’ve stayed has been of the luxury variety, and believe me after some 16 months in Africa living on an extremely tight budget, I have enjoyed every minute of this. And well I do enjoy being pampered at a nice hotel, for me a hotel is all about location, and...

Photo of the Week: Into the Eye of Africa

Sometimes when you’re out photographing you see cool photo opportunities.  But then, there are these moments of perfection that something pops into your vision and says “that means something”.  When I shot this photo in the village of Akwidaa in southwestern Ghana that’s exactly what I thought.  This kid had such brilliant eyes that they were reflecting me back.  Unlike the other kids around he wasn’t so...
