Into the Wild - Untamed Alaska and Canada

August 16, 2015

August 2015

I am passionate about nature. I love everything associated with nature - animals, the landscape, plants; all of the fascinating characteristics of the physical world.  I'm sure my friends and family tire of hearing me talk about my constant quest to be in the wild with such majestic animals.  Alaska and Canada provided me this opportunity.  Our trip allowed me to get very close with so many wonderful animals in their natural environment. The moose, black bears, grizzly bears, caribou, birds, salmon, just to name a few.  These experiences are life long treasures and memories, and I have tried to document some of the amazing creatures that allowed me to photograph them.


My poor husband - I dragged him everywhere in the search for animals. I was always researching the best places and times to encounter the wildlife. I was chased by 2 male caribous and this majestic fellow below did not take a liking to me being so close to his herd.  A brief snort, growl and then a chase, to the sounds of my husband yelling "run".

Jasper, Canada.

He was certainly keeping a watchful eye on me, Jasper Canada.

It's a fairly steep hike to the Summit of Whistlers Mountain, Jasper where this Golden mantled Ground Squirrel was watching the constant stream of people attempting the hike. I had so much fun capturing this little guy, who was fascinated with people and appeared to love my camera.

On our way from Banff to Jasper the major highway was closed due to an accident.  We opted to take a 4 hour detour on some very interesting back roads.  The scenery was spectacular and we sighted some deer playing in the field following some recent snowfall.

We cycled around Stanley Park, Vancouver spotting this little black squirrel half way through the ride.  I took great delight in photographing this curious little creature who wanted the peanuts that were in my backpack.

We also couldn't resist spending time with these geese on our ride through Stanley Park, Vancouver.

I fell in love with these squirrels.  A light snack before lunch. Jasper, Canada.

About Me

I'm an avid traveller based on the Gold Coast, Australia.  I love my photography.  My other passions involve outdoor activities, including snowboarding, surfing and  wakeboarding.  You'll find me riding every morning, swimming as much as I can and loving late night walks with my pups along the beach front.  Wildlife and nature amaze me and my favourite time is spent in the wilderness.
