Sunset beaver dive. This big guy didn't mind posing for a few pics and then I guess he decided enough was enough and dove under. I never knew that they actually dove, I always kinda figured they just submerged. I also love that the colours of the sunset are reflected in the splash... ๐Ÿนโค๏ธ . . . . #getoutside #greatoutdoors #greatnorthcollective #thecanadiancollective #imagesofcanada #pocket_canada #ig_great_shots_canada #persuepretty #ohcanada #ourplanetdaily #outside_project #nikon #NikonCA #naturallight #naturephotography #nature #northernexposure #exploretocreate #explorecanada #explorealberta #exceptional_pictures #jaw_dropping_shotz #wanderlust #wonderlust #wildlife #wildlifephotography #sunset #beaver #splash #lake @nikon_canada @travelalberta @canadasworld @cangeo at Carburn Park

Sure, when a little mouse is eating mushrooms in the fall he is fattening up for winter but when I do it I'm not allowed to drive and have to be escorted from the premises. Again it's one rule for woodland critters and another for full grown men with psilocybin... ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ„ I actually saw this little guy on a hike to the Lake Agnes tea House in Banff. . . . . #getoutside #greatoutdoors #greatnorthcollective #thecanadiancollective #thankyoucanada #pocket_canada #ig_great_shots_canada #persuepretty #ohcanada #ourplanetdaily #outside_project #northernexposure #NikonCA #nikon #naturephotography #nature #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wanderlust #wonderlust #exploretocreate #explorecanada #explorealberta #exceptional_pictures #jaw_dropping_shotz #mouse #autumn #mountains #banff #woods @parks.canada @nikon_canada @imagesofcanada @cangeo at Lake Agnes

It's not just the dramatic landscapes or amazing animals in the mountains that make it worth the trip. Sometimes it's the small imagery that really captures the attention if you look for it. This setting sun blasting through the seed pods of a fire weed was well worth seeing. โค๏ธ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒธ . . . . #teampixel #vsco #getoutside #greatoutdoors #greatnorthcollective #thecanadiancollective #imagesofcanada #pocket_canada #ig_great_shots_canada #persuepretty #ohcanada #ourplanetdaily #outside_project #northernexposure #naturallight #nature #naturephotography #exploretocreate #explorecanada #explorealberta #exceptional_pictures #jaw_dropping_shotz #wanderlust #wonderlust #sunset #flowers #blooms #flora #mountains #autumn @google @imagesofcanada @travelalberta @parks.canada at Barrier Lake

Having the mountains an hour away is a true joy of Calgary life. I never take it for granted. There is always something new to discover like this abandoned canoe on the Kananaskis river. We went for a sunset stroll and just happened upon it. May all your accidents be happy accidents. โค๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ . . . . #teampixel #vsco #getoutside #greatoutdoors #greatnorthcollective #thecanadiancollective #thankyoucanada #imagesofcanada #pocket_canada #ig_great_shots_canada #persuepretty #ohcanada #outside_project #ourplanetdaily #northernexposure #naturephotography #nature #naturallight #wilderness #wanderlust #wonderlust #exploretocreate #explorecanada #explorealberta #exceptional_pictures #jaw_dropping_shotz #canoe #mountains #sunset #huffpostcanada @cangeo @travelalberta @imagesofcanada @google at Kananaskis Country

It drives me absolutely fucking bonkers when I have to hear about a wild animal being destroyed because people are to dumb to realize it is wild. I have been photographing animals for years. Use a zoom, show caution and respect and keep your distance. You can get a great experience and great pics without jeopardizing the animal or yourself. Play safe, enjoy our gorgeous country and let everyone spend their days chomping dandelions in a sun-drenched field. โค๏ธ๐Ÿป . . . . #getoutside #greatoutdoors #greatnorthcollective #thecanadiancollective #imagesofcanada #pocket_canada #ig_great_shots_canada #persuepretty #ohcanada #outside_project #ourplanetdaily #northernexposure #NikonCA #nikon #naturephotography #nature #wildlifephotography #wildlife #wanderlust #wonderlust #exploretocreate #explorecanada #explorealberta #exceptional_pictures #jaw_dropping_shotz #blackbear #dandelion #bearsofinstagram #huffpostcanada #sharecg @imagesofcanada @nikon_canada @cangeo @travelalberta @parks.canada at Kootenay National Park

I had never heard of Hoodoos until I moved to Alberta. These unique geological formations were created by the glaciers and shaped by wind, rain and water over many millennia. They are a breathtaking sight and worth checking out. I especially love the Banff Hoodoos due to the contrast of the green trees and stunning blue of the Bow river. . . . . #teampixel #shotbypixel #vsco #getoutside #greatoutdoors #greatnorthcollective #thecanadiancollective #imagesofcanada #pocket_canada #ig_great_shots_canada #persuepretty #ohcanada #ourplanetdaily #outside_project #northernexposure #naturephotography #nature #exploretocreate #explorecanada #explorealberta #exceptional_pictures #jaw_dropping_shotz #wanderlust #wonderlust #geology #mountains #river #cangeo #landscape #landscapes @imagesofcanada @google @travelalberta @cangeo at Banff National Park
