Джек Большов и Марта Кулеша провели последние несколько лет своей жизни, фотографируя горы и записывая свои впечатления по пути от Исландского плато в Южные Альпы Новой Зеландии. «Будь то дождь, снег, солнечный день или штормовой — мы пытаемся максимально использовать условия, которые планета Земля решила дать нам»
It's been a week and a half since my accident in the Canadian Rockies and I still can't believe how lucky I am to be alive and so grateful more than ever for each new day. Today I met with my rescuers from Banff Search and Rescue who did an amazing job saving my life. Once again I experienced Canadian friendliness and kindness. Today I have opened my Lightroom for the first time in a week to look at all the photos I have taken in the past two months. There is almost 3000. They will certainly keep me busy for a while as I won't be taking photos in the next few weeks. Most of my camera equipment drowned during the accident. If you still wander what happened I slipped into a river whilst taking photos and was taken downstream into Mistaya Canyon where I ended up trapped for a couple of hours, stuck on a little shelf in freezing cold environment before I was rescued. I've been told today by the awesome people who rescued me that they were amazed I managed to stay aware for so long and that I didn't let go. Unfortunately others who slipped in similar circumstances weren't so lucky. I have definitely learned from this experience and I hope others will too. I will tell the whole story on my blog at some point when I finally bring myself up to put it all down on paper. For now, please stay save. Being extra careful won't hurt!
Today in Queenstown it was the most horrendous weather I've experienced since I lived here. I thought the wind was going to take down some houses. But don't forget that there is always a rainbow after the storm and I did see one today! I didn't have my camera to capture it though so here is a photo from a different day. Weather forecast for tomorrow is blue sky and sunshine!
«Наша последняя поездка была 14-месячным путешествием через Канадские Скалистые горы и Тихоокеанские прибрежные горы Британской Колумбии. Мы проехали 4000 километров на север, чтобы поймать 3-дневное северное сияние
Last signs of winters at Vermillion lakes in Banff as the lake thaws and the reflections start the appear again. Vermillion lakes must be one of the most photographed places in the Rockies. Justified or not? #igpodium_mag #nature_wizards #ig_exquisite #epictravelpage #superhubs_shot #ig_shotz #destination_earth #travelstoke #awesomepix #alldaynature #special_shots #instagoodmyphoto #alldayexploring #theworldshotz #inspiring_photography_admired #wowshot #musephoto
I spent 6 hours on average in the temperatures reaching -40 degrees staring at the northern lights dancing across the sky. Being cold would be a big understatement. My tripod froze, my lens barrel was hardly moving and every time I took my mittens off my hands were hurting like crazy from the cold. I don't want to make it too dramatic, but taking photos in this kind of environment is hardly fun. However If someone asked me to drive 2000 km north again, to watch aurora borealis, I would say yes without giving it a second thought. P.S. I am currently somewhere very warm thawing a bit! If you can guess where it is I will send you a postcard from where I currently am!
This is what happens when the water temperature is warmer than air. Lake Minnewanka just before the big winter freeze!
