When people inquire as to what we do for a living, they immediately assume when we answer ‘landscape photographers’ that we spend all of our time outdoors. We wish! The move to digital revolutionized photography in more ways than one. Like many micro-businesses, we spend most of our time at a computer running our business and not out shooting. But we do like to carve out time to get back to nature, so along with our friend, Ian McGillvrey, we’re heading this week for a multi-day hike in the backcountry of Waterton Lakes National Park. Has it really been four years since we were there last making the following pictures!!??
One thing we love about Waterton is the combination of mountains and grasslands: the prairie nips hard at the toes of the Canadian Rockies. With rare flora, a high density of fauna and sometimes beautiful evening light, the park is a treat for photographers. This isn’t a serious photo trip for us, but there will probably be a shot or two showing up here on the blog down the road!
