I’m finding writing about being home in Canada quite difficult. I guess the fact that I’ve seen it all before, and I’ve spent so much time guiding in the area makes it all a little bit more difficult to write in the same way as I do with fresh eyes in a new location. Sure it’s exciting and beautiful, and I find myself constantly reminiscing, but it’s hard to put it all on paper. The same isn’t true for photography; the photos have been easy to create.
The beauty of being home and shooting photography is twofold. For one, the last time I was in this area I didn’t really shoot that many photos, so even though I’ve seen it all, it’s all new image locations. Of course, even if you shoot the same place over and over, you never get the same light and same exact scene. And secondly, the fact that I know the region like the back of my hand makes it easy to find amazing places to shoot! As soon as I got to Banff National Park, I headed to one of my favourite places in Alberta to photograph: Johnston Canyon. These are some photos from the hike through Johnston Canyon and there is some info in the captions to lead you through the photos as well. Enjoy!
