I'm finding the park rangers in Jasper to be a little too militant at the moment.

I was found guilty of parking my camper in the public car park at 'Goats and Glaciers' for a sunset one day and I made the grievous mistake of putting the stairs down on my camper.

That was enough for the over eager park ranger to swoop in, park his truck so as to block mine and then storm over to where I was shooting to give me a severe questioning.

This obviously ruined my shoot as it's kind of difficult to focus on shooting the sunset when you're being needlessly interrogated by an over zealous ranger.

After he'd asked me where I was from. If I had ID, what I was doing , where I'd been, where I'm originally from and where I was staying he seemed somewhat crestfallen when I explained we were staying at the Wabasso campground just down the road and did indeed have our booking ticket displayed on the dash of the truck.

He didn't bothered to check that in his eagerness.

I was also told off for being on the other side of the stupidity fence. A fence that you simply walk around and don't have to jump. A fence with no signage telling me I wasn't allowed on the other side. A fence that has the sole purpose of saving inept people from falling on to a gradually sloping bank of a hard sandy substrate.

His justification was that the 'vegetation' on the other side of the fence needed protecting. My eighteen footsteps were clearly viewed as more damaging than the mountain goats, severe wind erosion, snow, ice and rain over the eons.

Ugh!

My apologies for the rant. I get that rangers do an important job with a goal of protecting the parks and protecting people from their own cluelessness.

Just don't make the assumption that I'm illegally camping just because I dropped the stairs on my camper before dark. You'll just be wasting your time and ruining my shoot.

Rant over.

So this shot is a 5 shot vertical pano which made the peaks look a lot more tall and dramatic than they really are.

I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for looking.
Gavin

Incredible, hand-stitched, one-of-a-kind outfit created for Your Fairy Godmother by a seamstress in Italy. I had the immense pleasure of using it in my photography.
Used multiple flying Ravens from Nevermore Ravens in the Macabre Series. I applied them at like 75% opacity so they integrated with the soft tones in the background. I used a new tint I've created that I'm not quite sure what I'm doing with yet called Coffee Cake.

Short before the impact :) I made a whole series of about 10 pictures during this run. Every single of them is sharp and usable. The Sony A7III and the FE 135/1.8 GM are a great combo for things like that.

The General Grant Tree is the second-largest tree in the world, standing 267 feet tall, and nearly 29 feet wide at the base.

The tree was named in 1867 after Ulysses S. Grant, Union Army general and the 18th President of the United States (1869–1877). President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed it the "Nation's Christmas Tree" on April 28, 1926.

When we arrived to Kings' Canyon Park in the afternoon, we walked around the tree and used Planit for Photographer to plan the night shooting. We knew there would be moon lights when the time to shoot milky way. But we were hoping it wouldn't bright when it was setting. However, when we got in the position at the night, we couldn't see milky way clearly as we planed. So, I took a star trail instead of milky way:-)
