Enjoying another beautiful day in Alberta, flying over the enchanting Kananaskis Country in the Canadian Rockies. The view from up here is absolutely breathtaking! 

A huge thanks to @rockiesheli Tours and @travelalberta for the wonderful fight.

As a photographer, I always try to remind myself to simply enjoy the moment even when the conditions aren’t perfect for the frame. It’s at those times when I love to just take a step back and surrender a few moments to fully appreciate where I am and what’s in front of me.  

Over the years, this simple practice has helped me learn to place more value in the experience of a place rather than the act of capturing it.

In this case, overlooking exquisite Moraine Lake in Banff National Park, just being here is enough to put a huge smile on my face. 

However, that all being said, I certainly wouldn’t mind if some epic clouds decided to roll in. ;)

I’ve been having a great time flying over Queensland @Australia with the awesome team of helicopter pilots at @AirwaysAviation . All this week we’ve been working to capture high quality images of some of the most iconic and beautiful areas along the QLD coastline. 

While we’ve been flying over some awesome views so far, today’s early morning flight over Surfer’s Paradise was incredible as it quickly transformed into an epic display of color and light. So much so that this intense double rainbow lasted for a solid 20 minutes. It was absolutely incredible!

To make a long story short, let’s just say that 1.5 hours in the air and two full memory cards later, I was one satisfied photographer. :D
