Hello everyone, we are here writing from lovely sunny Mexico near Puerto Vallarta in Nayarit. We have heard the weather back home is a little cold, so we thought we would share a few pictures to help warm everyone up.
On good friday, we managed to capture this breath taking sunset out on the beach overlooking the Bahia De Banderas.
The next day we had some fun flying the drone around the complex we were staying and captured this wonderful beach shot, showing the stark contrast between the stand and ocean.
On Sunday we ventured into Bucerias a little town just north on the bay and enjoyed wandering the quaint streets, the busy of the markets and locals enjoying a 4 day weekend.
Today we are heading into down town Puerto Vallarta and hope to capture more amazing images! We will post another blog post shortly, of course if you want live updates, follow us on Instagram or facebook.
Well as usual we couldn’t decide where to go. So we packed up our car with our gear and headed east towards Kenora Ontario.
Of course no road trip / adventure is complete without a quick fuel up and stop at Star Bucks to get a coffee for the road. After this brief stop we were back on our way down the number 1 highway towards the Canadian shield and Ontario.
If you have not been this way, there are the usual sites along the way including Geppettos (closed for the season) and of course the longitudinal centre of Canada. Both places are worth a stop if you have never been, of course this isn’t our first trip out East so we cranked up some Lumaneers and kept on driving.
After an hour or so we hit the boarder and noticed a small dot on the GPS called Redditt. Being avid users of Reddit we had to stop there and check it out!
Day light was ending by the time we left Redditt and checked out the bottle house, so we decided to head back towards Winnipeg. Cruising along past Falcon Lake we decided to stop for a quick rest at the Pine Grove rest stop and managed to grab a great picture of the sky.
As always you can follow us on our adventures via Instagram, Facebook or right here on our blog.

Thanks to a break in the winter weather, we were able to do a bit of traveling in Manitoba and ended up at Grand Beach and then Pinawa.
Saturday we packed up our cameras and new lenses and headed off to Grand Beach. This would be a great opportunity to fly the drone and test out our new lenses we had picked up earlier in the week. We had a bit of a shopping spree and picked up an Ultra Wide Angle, 35 MM F/1.8, Fish Eye and Macro from Photo Central.
Of course it was also a great chance to use our snow shoes! Hiking through the snow dunes which covered the board walk we were able to get some great drone video of the stark frozen lake, and also took some amazing pictures which can be seen below or all of them in our portfolio.
We had so much fun outside that we decided on Sunday to head up to the Pinawa suspension bridge. So we charged our batteries, packed our snow shoes and headed out! 1.5 hours later we were there and it was amazing. Cool, quiet and peaceful as you can see from our pictures below.
As you can tell it was an amazing weekend! We are now planning our next adventure to CFB Rivers which is an old abandoned military base! Stay tuned and as always contact us if you would like us to take your pictures!
Our evening started out with dinner at The Forks itself, with a great meal form Kyu Grill in the main area. This area was recently renovated and now includes many restaurants, craft beer and coffee sellers. It was a perfect setting to begin our Ice Castle journey!
Once we completed our meal, we dressed up in our parkas and headed out to the Ice Castles located near the Human Rights Museum. What an amazing sight! Large structures made of frozen water, lit with various colors as you can imagine a photographers dream!
I must admit, I have been having issues with the F-stops and shutter speed settings in dark environments on the Nikon D7000, so some of the pictures did not turn out well. However we did manage to get some lovely shots which you can see below and more of them in the Portfolio.
If you have any ideas for our next adventure or would like us to help with your project please contact us.
Last weekend we drove out to Lyons House near Carberry Manitoba. It was an amazing trip despite the weather being -40c with the wind. Typical Manitoba weather of course.
Wearing our Outdoor Survival Canada, and Sorel’s we were warm and cozy as we adventured in and around the property. Due to the age of the building going in side was extremely dangerous as floors and roofs have collapsed, and in bulky clothing it will be hard to get out of the way if anything were to happen.
Some of our favorite shots can be found below. We have also posted all of our pictures in our latest gallery.
In our search for finding abandoned buildings, we were directed to head to Cardale Manitoba, this was promised as a ghost town, however after driving for 3 hours, we found a town with residents and nothing amazing to take photos of.
We left and on our way home saw an old grain elevator just east of Brookfield Manitoba. We were in luck! The weather was perfect, the light just getting dark and started taking photos with our new Nikon D7000 and the Nikno J1!
The results speak for themselves.
As always if you know of something we should take photos of please let us know! Contact us today!
