That’s all I can say. I finally got around to working on my mountain photos. I had some time to work on them while at my parent’s this past week. It helped kept me from getting too depressed – but in betweeen business meetings and lawyers etc, photography was a welcome distraction.
Arrived in Banff to spend one night so I could meet the bus that takes the group to the helipad at 7:00 am. I decided to splurge- so I spent the night at the storied Banff Springs Hotel.

And it feels great! Capping it all was an inspirational iPhone workshop on Saturday, where aspiring artists created some really astounding images.Continue Reading
