[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I can't believe it's been a whole year already. I have photoed in the cold, rain, heat and beat the incredible hoards of mosquitos that came out after the monsoon rains of June. I have climbed mountains, fell down a river bank (the camera is Ok, my knee and a tree stump broke my fall), have been chased by bison, charged by Elk and met a black bear that wanted to sniff my feet. I wouldn't have traded any of it away.

A year ago I couldn't spell DOF and POV and now I actually know what they are. This a crazy unique site, I love all the pictures that are posted here 24hrs a day. I check it every couple of hours on my i-phone. Above all it has been a great place to learn about nature, both yours and mine. Thanks to all who posted comments to my pictures over the last year.

This is a picture of one of my favorite places. It's the Athabasca river valley in Jasper. The last time I was there I rented a cabin on the river bank just to the left.

Hello Denis,

Happy anniversary Pal! I joined around the same time as you & also was a bit perplexed about BGs,POVs & DOFs. In fact, if someone had told me a year ago that I would be photographing dragonflies, butterflies & mushrooms & really, really enjoying it .... I would have asked them to immediately consult their psychotherapist.

Not now though, TN has enlightened me on all the nature - under my nose - that I'd been missing.

Beautiful Jasper composition btw & it's great to see this part of the country so well represented by yourself.



Beautiful comp
