If you drive the famous Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island, and then keep driving north on a windy dirt road until you hit the ocean, you will find the tiny, isolated community of Meat Cove. Giant cliffs and rock faces jet out of the Atlantic creating the ultimate ocean playground. @orukayak

In July @hayoui and I spent just over a month roadtripping from Ontario through to Newfoundland. For the both of us, this trip would be our first time paddling the Atlantic. From rugged, moody cliffs and otherworldly sea stacks to crystal clear white sand beaches, we would soon learn that Eastern Canada boasts some of the most impressive coastline out there. We put together a list of some of our favourite spots to kayak on the @orukayak blog.

I was only in Tweedsmuir Provincial Park for a few days but that's all I needed to convince me that a second trip back is necessary.

There's a reason why it's called fishing, not catching. 😉

Once we settled into Tesla Lake Lodge our pilot Nick was eager to show us some of his favourite places in the area. Our first stop was the unnamed glacier lake under butler peak.

Just got back from a whirlwind of a trip shooting for @travelnorthernbc in Tweedsmuir Provincial Park. From soaring over massive glaciers to fishing for trophy rainbows we covered a lot of ground in a place that was far more incredible than I expected. Looking forward to sharing some stories and images from this trip! #travelnorthernbc

A whole lot of fresh air.

Until recently the Long Range Traverse was the only backcountry hike in Canada that required you to pass a navigation test before you started. With there being no marked trail you basically take your pick at multiple game trails that cover the landscape. Each day the weather had something different in store for us, at times not even being able to see 10 feet in front of us which made it quite tricky to stay on track. We brought a map but heavily relied on my phone using a GPS/topo app. Just before the trip I partnered with @otterbox, the timing was perfect since my phone was going to be heavily exposed. Despite the elements and my clumsiness, my phone stayed intact so we could navigate the traverse through Gros Morne National Park. A trip for the books.

Hopefully by this time next year I'll have stood on top of this mountain.
Anyone else share the same goal?

In the heart of the Purcell Mountains you'll find fragile, delicate alpine meadows contrasted against rugged, unforgiving peaks.
The best of both worlds if you ask me.

The Lions are a familiar landmark here in Vancouver, you can make them out from almost anywhere in city. Even the most urban city dwellers would recognize these peaks. On this day in particular it almost looked like a remote island floating in the clouds, far away from the hustle and bustle below.

Peaks for weeks and rays for days in the north cascade mountains.

I love seeking new perspectives and discovering lesser known places while meeting passionate locals along the way. The #Explorer150 team and their drone powered by @Duracell share those same interests and are currently on a massive journey across Canada, follow the link bit.ly/explorer150 to discover more of what this diverse country has to offer. #ad #Canada #Nature

I feel that it's important to surround yourself with good company. People who inspire, challenge and push you.
Especially those who carry guitars into the backcountry so you can enjoy live music from the comfort of your tent.

I've shared a similar image to this one before but I feel this angle gives a better perspective of how big this (820 km2/320 sq mi) glacier really is.
Imagine what it used to look like...

Even though there were literally thousands of northern gannets in front of me it took a lot longer than I thought it would to get a single sharp image of one mid flight. However, it was fun and I feel it's important to constantly challenge yourself!
I don't shoot a lot of wildlife photography but I admire the patience and dedication of those who do, especially those who have made careers out of it and devote their time to conservation.

If you're looking for some wildlife photographers to follow I would recommend these incredibly talented people who's work I admire:

"Where is your favourite place that you've ever travelled to?"
That's a question that I'm frequently asked by friends and family and it's not an easy one to answer but I'd have to say British Columbia. Ever since I first visited I was hooked, so much so that I moved here.
