Throwback Thursday to before this awesome viewing platform was closed. It's a little wonky and they say it's unsafe but what's life without risk? So go out today and risk your life!! No no no...don't do that I'm kidding, I would miss you if something happened. 馃槅

I love coming to this area to explore and take photos but I always wonder about the barbed wire fence on the left. Is it there to keep something out or are they trying to keep me in? 路

One final bison picture. Did you know that these beautiful animals were almost hunted to extinction in the 1800's? Now there are over 400 000 in North America thanks in part to national parks like this one. Last year a bunch of bison from Elk Island were reintroduced to Banff National Park which hasn't had bison in 140 years. More will be introduced in the future. Have a great weekend! 路

When I was driving around looking for bison early in the day most of them were far off in the distance grazing so i thought i was going to be disappointed. But then when I was getting ready to leave they started coming up closer to the road. It's like they knew ... and now I feel really bad for ever eating bison burgers. 馃槼

Yesterday I promised something a little different so here it is. I rarely photograph wildlife but the main reason I spent the day here last weekend was to try to get some shots of these beautiful bison. They are the largest land animals in North America and aren't usually aggressive but you still need to give them space. I used a telephoto lens so I didn't get as close as this looks. 路

This is the island from yesterday's post so yes, I did in fact make there after walking for several kilometers through snow that was at least 1 meter deep, uphill both ways and into a strong headwind. I think there was also a blizzard but I persevered. And, no, I didn't get drunk on the island or use it as a toilet as many of you had suggested. 馃槅馃槀 One final note, tomorrow's post will be very different from what I usually post...sort of. 路

If you're not from this area you may not know that the trees in the distance are on an island. An island that you surprisingly can't walk to for most of the year. In the winter the water freezes and you can walk to it. Yeah, this is the worst caption I've ever written and that's saying a lot. 路

Throw back to the early days of winter. Now it's almost the end of January and winter will soon be over. I can almost feel the warmth of spring...or maybe that's just the stove? Yeah, it's definitely just the stove, it's still damn cold out there. 路

Usually when I shoot landscapes I use a wide angle lens but sometimes I like to switch it up and use a 50 mm. This was one of those times. It gives a really different perspective and I guess my point is that different perspectives can be good...but they may also not be very good. So, just do whatever you want I guess. 馃榿

You can't really see ice bubbles in this one but I still liked how the ice and snow piles up on the edge of the lake as if someone had cleared it. The more I think about it, the more I think that someone probably comes here at night with a zamboni to clear away the snow. 路

I showed in my IG stories how you're not alone when your out here. You're surrounded by other photographers wanting to shoot the same thing and find the best bubbles. Some arrive very early to claim their spots while others show up at the last minute and walk out in front of everyone. You shouldn't do that, it's bad form and people will yell at you. 馃槅 (For the record, I arrived early and I only yelled once). 馃槅

Did I hear someone say they like ice bubbles? Because I have a boat load of them. In case you're not familiar with them here is the deal. The decaying plants at the bottom of the lake release methane gas bubbles which get trapped just below the surface as the lake begins to freeze. Abraham lake is a famous spot for these because of the high winds which keep the ice surface free of snow. 路

If you checked out my Instagram stories you saw that I took a road trip to Abraham Lake yesterday to shoot some ice bubbles so I'll be posting those pics soon. I found out after I got home that one of my favorite photographers @colbybrownphotography was also there but he was shooting in a different spot so I didn't get a chance to meet him (He's a great guy and an amazing photographer and if you don't already follow him you should). Other than that it was an amazing trip and I highly recommend a winter visit to that area.
