Sometimes even the beastliest cameras aren't enough to capture a scene like this.

I have to resort to drastic measures just to capture this 3km beam of light.
Brent joins us for 3 nights of camping and hiking at Lake O'Hara but will the bus driver kick us off the bus after Amanda cuts the cheese?

Thankfully Brent brought 'TrailLube'! Once we've suffered through the obligatory orientation, it's time to hit the trails for some knee-breaking hiking but an arctic blast forces us to take shelter in a bitterly cold ditch.

Brent seems to be taking my bragging quite well until I push him too far and receive an uppercut to the sweetbreads. He's just jealous that his measly 50 megapixels are no longer top dog.

I'll show him with my whopping 102 Megapixels, nothing beats that right...right?

The 5 Day Deal Is Here: 5daydeal.com/partner/fototripper

Do you know one of those annoying conspiracy theorists who have a habit of always being right? Let me introduce you to 'Conspiracy Dave'. I don't know where he gets his insider information but he drops a massive bombshell in this video.

This could change the entire landscape photography world and even technology in general. Nothing will ever be the same again after this shocking revelation.

But Dave doesn't spill the beans for free. He's always asking for something in return for his illuminating leaks. Little does he know that what I've got to share is for everyone.

I hope you can join me for this Sunday's upcoming vlog.

Not only are there some hilarious moments of banter and capering, but I manage to film the exact moment where I capture this 3km long beam of light blasting into Lake O'Hara during my very first sunset.

Thanks for looking
Gavin

Prepare for LOTS of panoramas over the next few weeks.

There's something about the 62:24 preview on this camera that makes everything just look awesome.

Shot with the Fujifilm GFX100S.

Watch the video of the creation of this panorama at youtu.be/741Tf2PPqvQ

Thanks for looking

For four days, I patiently waited for the right conditions at this famously windy lake in the Canadian Rockies.

Actually, that's a lie. I was most impatient as the wind teased me with split-second glimpses of what could be only to rev up and dash my plans of capturing a serene moment like this.

After three days, I gave up and left to try my hand at some other promising locations in the Rockies.

While I did manage to capture some lovely images in different locations, I felt that I had unfinished business back on this lake so I resolved to return and give it one last try.

I'm glad I did.

Sure enough, a 5AM sunrise sojourn down to the lakeshore on the fourth day gave me the 'once in a lifetime shot I'd been searching for.

This single exposure was one of the easiest I've ever had the pleasure to shoot.

Using the Fuji GFX100S with the 100-200mm telephoto I was able to frame up this lovely composition at 135mm.

It was still almost dark so I was forced to shoot a 30" exposure which is why you can see some streaks in the water from the slow-moving leaves.

Moments like this are exactly what I live for and I even captured the moment in a vlog. Watch this space over the coming weeks for some beautiful, inspiring, and hilarious vlogs from this trip.

Thanks for reading.

Gavin
