Winter Photography Favourites 2007-2008

As the winter winds down in 2009, I have finally finished up editing my winter images from 2007-08. Yup, you got that math right, I am exactly one year behind in my photo editing. Pathetic? Absolutely! But that's what happens when I'm given the NHL Center Ice Package for my birthday -- I watch way too much hockey and do way too little editing!

Anyways, excuses aside, here are some of my own personal favourites (not necessarily my most saleable or popular shots) from the winter photographing in the Canadian Rockies and beyond in 2007-08.

The Cline River, David Thompson Country, Alberta, Canada

A wild wolf howling along a mountain road on a gloomy winter morning

A snowy owl perched atop the skeleton of a prairie tree

Castle Mountain reflected in the swift-flowing waters of the Bow River at sunset

Bull elk waging a late season battle in a snowstorm

A large bull moose in a fresh snowfall

Mt Rundle and Vermilion Lakes at sunset, Banff National Park

Two cow elk nervously cross the railway in a snowstorm

A herd of bull elk grazes below the towering face of Mt Ishbel

A lone bighorn ram surveys his winter domain in Wilcox Pass

A lonely abandoned farm on the Canadian Prairies

Friends photographing a giant bull moose at close quarters in Kananaskis Country

A wild wolf wandering the treeline on a beautiful sunny winter day

That's it! Hope you enjoyed the images.



  1. Love the photos, John. I am always amazed at how many wolf shots you get!

  2. As your work, Johnny! Please don't tell me we need to wait until 2010 to see the polar bear pics from 08' :)

    I have a busy summer planned. I'm spending 4 nights in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in June, in July I'm paddling to the Slate Islands off of Lake Superior's north shore to photograph woodland caribou...then in September I'm off to Grand Teton National Park for a 22-mile backcountry trip over Paintbrush Divide. Can't wait! If only all this snow would melt already :)

    Hope all is well up North!
