It's Aurora time! We had a massive solar storm this weekend which has led to us going out the past two nights chasing them. Our destination - Porteau Cove, British Columbia, Canada. It's a great location to shoot on a clear night as the stars are out in all directions and the park offers unique structures to shoot while you wait for the lights. I particularly like to shoot the Milky Way here. The northern lights show we received on the second night was one of my favourites I've had in the region. Often they dance for you but this time they pulsed. The best time to see them is between 1am and 3:30am. Eyes up.
Featured in Daily Hive's coverage of the storm http://dailyhive.com/vancouver/photos-northern-lights-canada and on how to find them in the Vancouver region. Happy Hunting! http://dailyhive.com/vancouver/northern-lights-vancouver-aurora-borealis-guide
I've been living in and around the Vancouver area for almost 11 years and this month marks my first year as being a Canadian citizen. To remind myself of the beauty of the region I took to the air. I'm not sure what lies ahead but I'm grateful for the last decade and the collection of experiences I've had here.
I finally got a copy of the Daily Peace featuring my image from the Arctic. I never dreamed when I was taking it that it would one day end up in a book by National Geographic. It was already special enough being under the northern lights.
Back in October I stumbled across the filming of National Geographic's documentary series Story of God at the Fishawys Cafe in Khan El Khalili, Cairo. It was a fascinating encounter with Morgan Freeman and the crew who were outnumbered by a large security team that looked like they would do more harm than good to Mr. Freeman. Very much looking forward to seeing the final result of this production and so wonderful I was able to be there. This image was featured in The Egyptian Streets and Al Bawaba coverage of the event.
