Photos from the Vault - The Yukon

I thought I'd start a new section on the blog today -- Photos from the Vault. A look back at some of my favourite images that you may not have seen before.

The Blackstone Uplands along the Dempster Highway in the Yukon

This is an old slide image of mine from one of my first trips up the Dempster back in 2003. Last year it graced the 2010 cover of the Western Canada Wilderness Committee's (WCWC) Endangered Spaces calendar.

I shot this with a Canon EOS 3 body and my trusty old 20mm f2.8 lens. I used a warming polarizer to bring out the fall colours a bit more, and a 2-stop split neutral density filter to hold back the sunset and bring out more detail in the foreground leaves.

Hope you enjoy it!



  1. Yes, I am enjoying it. do you scan your own slides or have it done somewhere?

  2. Hey Peter, I scan all of my own with a Nikon Coolscan 5000.

  3. this is just lovely all over, great fall colors....amazing sunset, and a reflection to boot! What more could you ask for!
