We asked oopoomoo team member John Marriott to highlight 2013 for us. Here is what he said:
When Sam and Darwin asked me to put together a Top Ten of my 2013 images, I immediately panicked and wondered if I’d actually even edited 10 images from 2013 yet. Thankfully, I’d edited at least a few of my faves from the year, so here you go, a taste of 2013!
The year was highlighted by two different amazing lynx encounters in Banff and Jasper national parks, but also featured a trip to Yellowstone and a host of photo tours across Canada to super exotic locales like Spuzzum and Rockglen (I’m kidding, the photo tours actually did go to some pretty cool places, like the Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary and the Great Bear Rainforest).
And of course the year 2013 would not be complete without me mentioning my favourite part of the year, when my wife and I lived the thrilling life of wannabe adventurers and evacuated our house in Canmore to avoid a small amount of water rushing by our house. Two months living in a hotel is a very, very long time, so needless to say, I’m ready to say a hearty goodbye to the year that was, and welcome 2014 in with a giant hug.
We say: great collection, John! If you like John’s work and want to know where he finds his animal subjects in the Canadian Rockies be sure to pick up a copy of his fantastic eBook: The Icefields Parkway Wildlife Edition.
