How to Winterize Your Running Routine

I love to run. I find it relaxing and challenging at the same time, a way to clear my head and provide me with a break from my regular routine on the bike. I try to do it all year round, but I live in Eastern Canada, and running outside in the winter in Eastern … Read more ›

Patagonia Men’s Lightweight Synchilla Snap-T Pull Over Reviewed

I had a Patagonia Synchilla fleece before, a long time ago.  It was a pull over like this one, in a green and blue colour that I liked very much.  It had a marsupial pouch in the front that I did not like very much, because aside from keeping my hands warm I couldn’t really … Read more ›

Hiking Essentials You Won’t Want to Forget

Backpacking, especially overnight backpacking, is a pretty amazing thing.  I try to get out as often as I can, even if it’s a place close to home.  Sometimes those are the best ones, when you don’t need to travel far and getting out the door is quick and can happen on a moment’s notice. Still, … Read more ›

Nepal has been a place that has long attracted me.  The Himalayas, to be sure, offer no end of photographic opportunities with their huge windswept peaks, spectacular views, and perpetual changing landscape.  I suspected that I would find more than just that when I finally visited, and have tried to go three times now.  My … Read more ›

Rab Neutrino Endurance Jacket Review

I am outside in the cold a lot. Usually in the very early morning, or the evening, because that is when the light is usually the most interesting. But that is usually when the sun is not around.

A Scotland Sailing Trip in Photos

I have a confession to make. I have never sailed. This, despite spending most of my life near the ocean. I was born and raised in Atlantic Canada, and as a photographer I have traveled around the world creating images of sunsets, sunrises, and epic clouds over water. But I’ve never been out on a … Read more ›
