Celebration of Light

Every summer in Vancouver there is a wonderful fireworks competition where different countries compete against one another. This year the countries competing are Vietnam, Brazil and Italy. As many as 400,000 people come out each evening to watch the fireworks. First up was Vietnam and I was able to capture this image during their show.

The Earth at Night

This video is composed of images taken by astronauts aboard the International Space Station. It shows the lights from major cities, lightning and the Aurora Borealis. It’s simply amazing.

I recently spent a week camping and taking images in Jasper National Park. The weather was very hot and since we received a lot of rain in June there were plenty of mosquitoes. One morning as I was walking back to my campsite I came across this female elk in the picnic shelter. The cement floor made it very cool and by resting in here she was able to temporarily escape the heat. I never saw any of the campers using this shelter, probably because of the mosquitoes, but it was nice to see the elk putting it to good use.
