Bow Lake – Alberta’s Glass Lake.
To say that Bow Lake is beautiful is an understatement. Anyone who has seen photos or driven the Icefield Parkway themselves knows how captivating the drive is. From the moment you approach the rest stop, you see the mountains towering above Bow Lake; it reflects, like glass, the sky above, while somehow managing to stay absolutely frozen despite the subtle breeze. Maybe I was lucky and stopped at the right time, but I feel as though I have seen this lake in other years, just as still and pristine.
Like many travelers before me, I wanted to stop at Peyto Lake (the brilliant turquoise lake seen in thousands of photos online that stands below a cliff viewpoint), but this lake was closed due to construction on a new parking lot, and also for CoVid. Bow Lake did not disappoint, however, and I found a moment to enjoy it in my #reddressseries that I made for clients to use in photo sessions with me — I can’t help it if I also enjoy dressing up in marvelous gowns and dresses for my own photo shoots.

I have always enjoyed dressing up. As a child I wore dresses (every day) until I was in Grade 6 when a boy made fun of me and asked why I didn’t wear pants like normal girls. I am happy to say I still enjoy dresses from time to time (but do find pants warmer and more practical for most cases), and when I do wear a dress I like to make an occasion of it — like this #reddress gown I made for photography. If you have never visited Liard Hot Springs a few hours north of Fort Nelson, B.C in Canada, I recommend you make a trip. Not only do we see northern lights (almost daily in winter), but we have the best hot springs I have ever visited! They are naturally occurring, and surrounded by trees and wildlife. Often you will find moose in the shallow spring areas eating vegetation year round (do be careful as they are wild and very dangerous — they are not trained photo-props). If you are looking for a remote adventure, far from large cities and light pollution, come visit Northern B.C. and enjoy what nature has to offer. #northernrockiestourism #northernrockies #travelBC #travelnorthernBC
The nights are long in this small northern town in Canada; the long nights bring days where the sun barely skims the tops of our twig-like trees. The days are cold and will freeze the cells of your body within minutes. You must come prepared for what the land brings, and be ready for extremes.
It has become cold now. The leaves are gone and the snow has turned the pine trees into winter cacti; their bristles frozen and glistening white, like tiny swords ready for a fight. The true battle is not the snow, but the bitter cold. We have a long winter ahead of us and the storms have yet to blow through the mountain pass. Here are some photos to document the winter months.
Lynn Valley and Squamish – It was snowing beautifully all day so we decided to enjoy some waterfalls in the area – we were visited by a Raven in Squamish while we looked upon Stawamus Chief Mountain
