New on 500px : Assiniboine Reflection by derek_dammann by derek_dammann

Assiniboine, the most stunning view in North America that I’ve yet encountered. All it took to get there was hiking 33km, getting lost, wading through flooded streams, camping on a rocky hillside, eating snow to survive, and losing a lot of blood. Can’t believe everyone’s not doing it!

Moraine Lake, Canada, early in the morning when only few people were awake.

New on 500px : Contemplating Assiniboine by callumsnape by callumsnape

Its the refreshing pine smell lining the forest, the damp lichen clinging to the branches, the buzz of mosquitoes, the dry heat of the continental divide. All of this attracts me to this pinnacle moment after a 27km hike to the top of Nub Peak.
The aches, the blisters, the strap sores, they don’t matter. What matters is that I’m here in this moment, seeing this with my own eyes. Watching the last sun hit Mount Assiniboine shading the valley and signing off the day… it couldn’t be any more perfect.

New on 500px : Along with the milky way by Victor_Liu_Photography by Victor_Liu_Photography

I was definitely looking at a different direction as the milky way, but soon I realized the beam from my headlamp was parallel to it, and they are like two diagonal bars across the sky.

A “less is more” take on a snowy scene in Banff, Canada. It’s easy to get caught up in a mess of ‘epic’ pink sunsets, but it’s the moments like this remind me that not every moment in nature needs to be colorful to take one’s breath away.

New on 500px : True Blue by drgumz by drgumz

My first visit to famous Moraine Lake in the Valley of the Ten Peaks didn’t disappoint.

It is visually stunning and yes, the water really is that blue.

This one is a departure from my usual processing style, and the time of day was the worst for light, but I’m posting it anyway.

So there.
