I was going through my old photos when i stumbled across this aurora shot. I remember taking this photo at lake minnewanka on August 31st 2016 sitting on a rock when this meteor shot over i had to stay sitting still with excitement hoping my camera caught it.
You belong in a boat out at sea
~ Tom Petty
The question is, which boat?
This is the Pacific Ocean, more specifically, the splendid Salish Sea.... here are #3awesomethings about it.
1) it covers a shoreline (including islands) of 7,470km between Vancouver island and mainland North America. It includes The Strait of Georgia in the north, Puget Sound in the south, as well as the Straight of Juan de Fuca. .
2). It is one of the world's largest and biologically rich inland seas. 37 species of mammals, 172 species of birds, 247 species of fish and over 3000 species of invertebrates call the Salish Sea home.
3)Both Canada and the US officially recognized the body of water as the Salish Sea in 2010. Its named after the Coast Salish First Nations who were its stewards for thousands of years. .
Fun fact: Giant Sequoias can live up to 3,000 years and have fire-proof bark. These are some pretty bad-ass trees if you ask us! 💁 Stoked to be spending another weekend up in #Sequoia before heading off to Canada! 🌲

"It was an amazing feeling crossing a big hike off of the bucket list. Being there and seeing it in person, it was more beautiful than any photo I'd seen. The light coming in through the narrow canyon walls created beautiful colors. This experience was well worth the 9 mile hike!"
Ive finally finished the last of my top 3 photos from the trip to Torres del Paine in 2016. Sometimes a shot looks so perfect that you don't want to spoil it by changing anything, and at the same time you feel is not ready.
The pink hues here are the exact representation of what people calls as "magic sunrises of Torres del Paine". Even when the sky looks dull before sunrise, you should definitely go to a spot. Your effort will be rewarded most of the times.
Djupalonssandur is a wonderful small pebbled beach, with a series of rocks of various forms emerging from the ocean. It can be found on the south western side of Snaefellsnes Peninsula in Iceland.
