“She sees in black and white, thinks in greys but loves in colour.”🖤🐮 ▿ ▿ ▿ Has an excellent weekend at the Hanna Pro Rodeo visiting close friends. It was a weekend to remember. During the quiet part of Saturday, I was able to capture some images of my favourite bovines. Black and white seemed so fitting. A new #SSWomenInAg segment is coming up later this week. Find out who owns these beautiful creatures! ▿ ▿ ▿ ▿ #agmorethanever #prairieproud #mybadlands #travelalberta #cndag #canadagram #rural_love #renegade_rural #pocket_farms #weownthenight_ab #ImagesofCanada #ExploreCanada #bpa_rural #trb_rural #BucketListAb #sharecangeo #shareyourweather #NikonCA #yourshotphotographer #Nikon_Canada #FarmHER #photojournalism #farm365 #westernwayoflife #westernlifestyle #Alberta #raw_country #farm_snaps #country_features

Today’s post is about a very interesting and beautiful phenomenon associated with aurora. The phenomenon is called Steve and was officially described only in 2016! To this day there is a discussion about explanation of its genesis. With a group of my friends photographers we were in Smithers (British Columbia, Canada) where we stopped to stay for a night. However, we didn’t plan to sleep because on that night (August 31, 2019) there was a strong magnetic storm and a good chance to see aurora above our heads. The biggest activity was to be early in the evening. That's why at 10 pm we went on our "Photo-Aurora-Hunt". When we arrived at the scene the spectacle was already on: the sky in the east was glowing with the distant greenery of the northern lights, and a little further to the south the sky was crossed by a flare of purple-violet light called 'Steve'. The term Steve (Strong Thermal Emission Velocity Enhancement) appeared in the dictionary of aurora hunters only in 2016 and was described in Alberta (province of Canada) by a Facebook group of Albert Aurora Chasers (AAC). This example shows the importance of the participation of "citizen scientists" in the development of modern science. Thousands of pairs of eyes of aurora enthusiasts facing the same direction, extensive photo documentation, discussions on the forum, and finally a dialogue with scientists from local universities resulted in discovering a new phenomenon and helped to explain its origin.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #albertaaurorachasers #steve #steveaurora #aurora #northernlights #aurorasaurus #tweetaurora # #yeg #nightsky #theworldatnight_ab #weownthenight_ab #canadiancreatives #geomagneticstorm #ig_countryside #infinity_shotz #main_vision #water_captures #ig_all_americas #colors_of_day #nightphotography #astrophotography #fiftyshades_of_twilight #globalcapture #totescanadian #ig_today #waycoolshots #supreme_nightshots #zorzapolarna #auroraborealis #krajobraz ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀

A nice road trip with @john.andersen95. Started as a chase for fall colors, the sunset was a bust because of clear skies, which means that we made the best use of the clear nite for a few last Milky Way core shots for 2019. Glad to say, I am getting more comfortable shooting Sony and love the simplicity of the Voigtlander!! . . . . #earthpics #jaw_dropping_shots #earthexclusive #ig_worldclub   #special_shots #universetoday   #global_hotshotz #worldbestgram #natgeospace #outside_project #longexpo_addiction #sky_brilliance #majestic_earth #amazingphotohunter #timelessuniverse #splendid_earth #sharecangeo #fantastic_shotzs #earthexperience #amazing_shotz #earth #amazing_shots #longexposhots   #worldcaptures   #weownthenight_ab #milkywaychasers #milkyway #waterfall #travelalberta

Amazing what you can find when you look beyond the darkness... And a little moonlight may not let those stars shine brightly but it sure makes everything else easier to see.

“Sometimes I wonder if your wandering thoughts wonder about me.” 🖤🖤🖤 ▿ ▿ ▿ ▿ ▿ Spent roughly 2 full hours going through all the people I follow here on Instagram. There were some that have long since been left by their original owner. In total, I think I unfollowed over 100 accounts. It feels like spring cleaning except it’s in the fall. Either way, it was worth it. ▿ ▿ ▿ ▿ ▿ #agmorethanever #prairieproud #mybadlands #travelalberta #cndag #canadagram #rural_love #renegade_rural #pocket_farms #weownthenight_ab #ImagesofCanada #ExploreCanada #bpa_rural #trb_rural #BucketListAb #sharecangeo #shareyourweather #NikonCA #yourshotphotographer #Nikon_Canada #FarmHER #photojournalism #farm365 #westernwayoflife #westernlifestyle #Alberta #abandonseeker #abandon_seekers_ #raw_country #farm_snaps

I’ve been stepping outside of my comfort zone, pushing my body and more so my mind, working on ridding the excuses and fears I’ve used so much in the past. I took this shot after what was a pretty gruelling hike for me, i was sore and tired but I new I would have major FOMO if I missed out on potential auroras. I powered through and I survived! I want to say thank you to all my people who love me as I am but also support my journey to be the best and happiest me I can be. ~~~~ #yycphotographer #aurora #albertaskies #northernlights #auroranotifications #igtones5k #igpodium_night #raw_canada #raw_creative #pocket_canada #pocket_nights #alberta #albertacanada #weownthenight_ab #albertatourism #travelalberta #canadiancreatives #canada_gram #canada_photolovers

@sjscattleco is undeniably herself. She’s spunky, she’s loyal, she’s down to earth. she’s an amazing person in the agriculture industry. And honestly, I have never seen someone with so much hair on their head in my life! During introductions it was in a bun but once she let her hair down I was gobsmacked. A perfect model on a perfect evening out by Rimbey. ▿ ▿ ▿ ▿ ▿ Shanna is a ranch wife out by Bluffton which isn’t too far from Rimbey. The property sits on the top of this massive hill and has the most beautiful mixture of random trees and open fields. Her blog highlights all things ag related and how it works in her world. Her photography sense is right on the money and I can not wait to share how her images of yours truly turned out❤️ We had been in talks for roughly 3 years before there was finally a chance to meet and do this shoot. It was well worth the wait!

I felt so blessed to see Aurora and Steve with the picket fence on my Birthday (Sept. 5th) I always feel like my Mom sends it as a gift, as it’s something special my Mom and I shared. Because this Birthday was my 40th and I was spending it without both of my best friends (Mom & Grandma) I was super bummed... so walking out into the night and seeing this actually made me cry tears of so many different emotions of past memories and new memories to come. #cbtambassador #cbnorth #mybadlands #emotion #weownthenight_ab #aurora #steve #memories #home #albertaaurorachaser #oh_canada_ #bns_sky #mynatureAB #rsa_rural #trb_country #trb_rural #loves_canada #pocket_canada #Alberta_Canada_Outside #thecanadiancollective #thegreatoutdoors #rsa_rural_mbr #ipulledoverforthis #country_features #mycanadianphotos #mcl_rural #explorealberta #hdr_country

I recently had an opportunity to shoot the Milky Way for the first time. We spent two nights at @morainelakelodge last month. Our stay coincided with perfect conditions for the Milky Way! What a treat to sit by the lake and see the MW with our own eyes. My husband had never seen it before and didn’t know you could with your naked eye. // I was able to take this image with the help of my friend @kristenryanphotography // Kristen teaches landscape photography at @clickphotoschool and a new 4 week run of The World Around You starts soon! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this class to anyone interested in learning to capture the beauty of our world. #morainelake #jeweloftherockies #banffnationalpark #parkscanada #theworld_around_you #beyondportraits #travelalberta #whererockies #clickinmoms #howiclick #clickmagazine #clickpro #themindfulapproach #curiocitycalgary #imagesofcanada #nightskyphotography #nightskies

Moraine Lake Banff National Park 2019-08-08 Photo taken at 8:45 PM Summer days are crazy busy in the Banff National Park. If you wanted to drive and park at Moraine Lake for the day, you had to be there before 5:30 AM. After that time, your are taking the shuttle to the lake. . . . . #morainelake #banff #banffnationalpark #parkscanada #parkscanadashop #mybanff #lakelouise #lake #explore #explorealberta #explorecanada #imagesofcanada #weownthenight_ab #nikon #teamnikon #parcscanada #hikingadventures #montainphotography #mountains #hiking #canada

We’ve got brighter stars back home... 🌟 Been meaning to re-shoot the Milky Way at Lundbreck Falls for a while; finally made it by to snap this set last week. Set up on the high bank downstream, which I have to admit was a little bit unnerving when I turned the headlamp off, even when I had made a point of keeping well back from the edge! 😱 #MySouthernAB #lundbreckfalls #findyourselfinthepass

Who else managed to catch some aurora this past long weekend?!🙋🏻‍♀️ This was Friday evening, which became more of a ‘Steve’ chase than a straight up Aurora chase this far south. We took to calling these bright green pickets and the patches of purple above ‘Stevettes’, since we didn’t really see a single big band of the purple! #mysouthernab #phenomenalsteve #whileyouweresleeping

Star mash! A meteor steaks green along the Milky Way, as I was camped out on the Smith Dorrien gravel backroad. It was so dark around 2:30am... the Milky Way was so bright...and airglow lit up sky for me, my dogs and the wildlife. This is a single shot, 15 sec exposure, I could have raised the ISO to draw more colours in.... next time. To draw an analogy... it’s like looking towards downtown where the most condensed living is... Our home earth, is a speck in the galaxy suberbs 🌌 and you have to wonder how many more beautiful planets are out there Hidden behind the mountain is andromeda galaxy... next closest galaxy to us, it’s also visible to our eye on nights like this . . #ourplanetdaily #milkyway #savethisplanet #earthcapture #weownthenight_ab #nightsky #nightskyphotography #darksky #star #mountain #wildlife #getoutside #raw_canada #astronomy #astronomyfacts #albertatourism #bebrave #nikond4 #canadianrockies
