Really would love to bring more value on to this platform. Don’t think this quote-thing works so I’ll have to find another way😄
Until then, enjoy this icy waterfall. Shot with a ND filter to make it look smooth.
Have you ever had an idea of what you imagined a place would be like but when you actually see it exceeds your expectations ? Thats is what our recent tripe to Canadian Rockies was all about. Incredible canyons, waterfalls with deep glacier green hue and winding roads - every time it takes your breath away +
...and just like that, we are back in Anne’s Land, our favourite island in the whole world! Starting our adventures on the Summerside waterfront saying hello to the Indian Head Lighthouse! Can you see it?
There are so many of us out here in the world right now. Our fight isn’t with one another to be better than the next. More often than not, our battle tends to be only with ourselves. Those next to us? They’re probably just trying to do their personal best in this particular season of life. They possess their own dreams, goals, and desires. They are going through triumphs and failures right now. Just like me. Just like you. We are all trying. We are all beautiful. We are all imperfect. Instead of looking at those around us as competition, or assuming the worst about each other, what if we chose to view one another with love and mercy? What possibly could your neighbour be going through personally to be acting as they are? What if mercy was the first reaction when our friend messes up, and love and support were our default responses to seeing others succeed in their own lives? Wouldn’t that be nice? And the coolest part of all is that choosing love and mercy is unbelievably possible, and we are so freaking capable of giving them by changing our own hearts.
We had been sitting completely motionless for days, in cover and waiting for a wild sunrise to show itself. It seemed hopeless and we were about to give up when the sky suddenly lit up with a big blast and threw its rays upon the mountaintops. A shutter clicked and our cover was blown. The sun slowly turned our way, and instead of running, it made notice of our great efforts. It gave us a fist bump, a wink, made a laughing sound of happiness and went back down again, leaving us in total silence and stillness.
Had the first little bits of winter snow on these mountains yesterday - because no one ever said that mountains look better naked
