Yukon 2022 | Larger than Life

in Photography Lovers4 months ago

In 2022 I had the privilege of visiting the Yukon, Canada. We arrived in the middle of August with two weeks to explore.

The Yukon's slogan Larger Than Life couldn't be more accurate. With mountain ranges spanning hundreds of kilometers separated by vast tundra environments, it was often difficult to understand the scale of the surroundings. Take extreme weather systems that brought down hail and torrential downpours mixed with high-speed winds that ripped through the valleys and you get the tortured raw landscapes that exist in the North. There were multiple times when the two weeks we had in the North seemed far too long, hiding in our tent from the elements, soaked and cold. But as soon as the wind quieted down and the rain let off a bit I found myself surrounded by incredible beauty. Vast sweeping hills formed by erosion and water. Volcanic spires rising from the Tundra like horns on a demon, frozen in place by the glaciers that trapped their explosive force. And an entire palette of colors all at once. Green through red and back again. All at the same time in a symphony of patterns.

The following are select images from my experience in the North, taken during fleeting moments of calm between aggressive rainfall and winds.

few of those mountains look unreal. Cool shots.

I feel that a lot of people don't realize what it takes for some of those landscape photos. (of course there are those times when a beautiful view is right next to a road :) )

The whole area is a mix of volcanic spouts and Tundra. So the mountains become extremely steep black plumes surrounded by Tundra built over millions of years. Really really interesting landscape to explore.

And ya haha the effort is rarely appreciated 💀 but, that's why I do it for me. I love the adventure and challenge to capture the images I want.

Very beautiful images. Canada is a must go. 🥾⛰️📷

Yes! Come visit. People always just go to the touristy Banff and Toronto. But there is so much more to explore

I believe you 💪🏽

Amazing shots!

Thank you so much :) it took a lot of effort to capture some of these! Glad you enjoy them

I bet some of them were incredibly difficult to capture as well as you did!

Yay! 🤗
