Winter Rocky Mountains

Well it’s still very much winter around here (in Alberta)! But at least it make the mountains look nice. 🙂

A Colorful Street

While I was roaming the streets of Puerto Vallarta one night I passed by this street. I thought all the colorful flags were a nice touch, so I walked to the end of the street and shot this photo. Puerto Vallarta is such a wonderful little city, I hope to go back again soon!

Nikon D7100 & Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 ~ ISO:100 – f/16 – 30sec.

Stray Cat

I bumped into this stray cat while walking around a random neighbourhood of Puerto Vallarta one day. This cat wasn’t exactly friendly, well he wasn’t not friendly, he just didn’t wander over to me or anything. As I tried to get picture of him he immediately decided to walk off. I kept trying to shoot photos of him as he was leaving and I think you can kind of see it in his face (in the 2nd picture) that he wasn’t to happy about the situation lol. I’m sure he’s laying on a stone path in front of someones house over looking the ocean right now, so I’m sure he got over it. 😉

Nike Destroyer Hike

So my family and I went for a wicked hike just outside of Puerto Vallarta. I shot a little video along the way and thought it was worth sharing here. This is the first video I really used my DJI Osmo gimbal in and I am very happy with the results. I think I’m going to continue to use that gimbal for most of my videos moving forward.

A Night Down This Street

I shot this photos while walking around Puerto Vallarta one night last week. I didn’t have any plan or specific idea of where I was going, but I just started walking around and looked for a good photo opportunity. I wasn’t even going to bother getting a shot of that church down the street, because I’m certain it has been shot to death. However, while I was walking down this street I took a look back and I thought it looked nice in the background. I really like this picture because it is so far off from the streets I see back home. The scene is wonderful and it is exactly how I remember it looking to me in real life.

Waves

My family and I took a little hike out to a place called Colomitos Beach. The beach is about a 15 minute drive outside of the Puerto Vallarta and then you need to either do a 45 minute hike or take a boat. We did the hike and when we hit the beach the boys were loving it!

Skateboarding Around Puerto Vallarta

I spent a couple hours riding around on my skateboard in Puerto Vallarta one day. I cruised down the boardwalk and saw some cool statues, climbed one, took in the sights and saw some dude climb in a cage with a monkey! 😉

Off to Puerto Vallarta Mexico

I am happy to report that I am posting this from beautiful Puerto Vallarta, Mexico right now! We arrived here a couple days ago and have been loving the warm weather. All the winter back home in Calgary was getting a little old. It’s a travel day for the video, but I’ll be posting more videos from the trip while we are here :).

Don’t miss the sunset timelapse! It’s at the end of the video. 😎🌅

Rocky Mountain Sun

I was out in Banff, Alberta this past weekend on a little family ski trip. The weather was pretty cold and it was snowing most of the time so I didn’t get a chance to take many pictures. I shot this photo on the day we left right before we headed home. The pictures from the ski hill are just some snaps I took with my GoPro.

Snowy Edmonton

I was up in Edmonton last weekend and it was super cold and snowy! I stopped off at my favourite photo spot and shot a few quick city shots before I left town.

Great Falls Sunset

I don’t get down to Montana as much as one might think you would living in Calgary. It’s relatively close to get down there, but every time I leave the city I find myself wanting to get back to Washington or Oregon and that’s where I usually go. I think I am going to make an effort to find my way around Montana this summer and check out more of what the state as to offer. I shot this photo in Great Falls, Montana.

Pearl Harbor, Hawaii

When I was in Hawaii last summer I obviously took a trip out to Pearl Harbor. I’m not a big war buff or anything, but it was pretty interesting to see all that stuff. I never saw those big rockets before, they are pretty amazing! I also toured a submarine and a battle ship which was fun to see. The U.S.S. Arizona Memorial (ship that sank) was crazy to be at. Right before you take the tour they show you this little film about what happened. Being out there is really something else and even if you’re not into that kind of thing I think you’d enjoy it.

Abandoned Cancun

Well now that it’s all cold out around Calgary I am going to have to start digging through my files for photos haha. I know I should be getting out there, but I’m just not fired up about freezing my butt off in the snow. Anyhow, I took this picture last year in Cancun, Mexico. Some abandoned mall across the street from some beautiful hotels! I’m not sure what happened, but it looked like it used to be a pretty good little spot. Ah well, out with old I suppose.
