Still amazed by this beautiful landscape of @purenewzealand. Remember the other drone shot of the Tasman Lake? We went on a glacier explorer tour just a few moments before - maybe you can spot the boats!

“Jeff Mercier climbs inside an ephemeral cave of the Mer de Glace,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Mathis Dumas. “An amazing experience, really steep climbing, and unreal difficulty.” Mer de Glace is a glacier valley located in the French Alps, and is the longest and largest glacier in France.
“The shape of this moulin is delightful. What a perfect location for a little adventure. I love how you have composed and structured your photograph Jeff. Most of the time, I’ve found when looking up at a climber, they can look a bit uninspiring and even offensive. Not here! This is great frame. The posture of your climber is excellent. Really cool. Very dynamic. Great frame and superb choice for this assignment: “Wow! What an Adventure!” — @natgeo photographer Robbie Shone (@shonephoto)

The road trip of a lifetime. This summer 2018, I want to see northern bc, by truck and by drone. I'm going to refit the box to insulate for truck sleeping and bring kit for the full experience. Extra gas, camping and weather gear, hiking supplies and maps, plenty of charging devices and an extra truck battery.. Instruments cameras and loads of dried fruit and nuts. For those far away places and detours, I'll account for more time than the minimum. It could take 10 days or so if I don't spend more than one night in the same place.
I've been thinking about it for a while and my trips to visit family are dry runs.. I'm ready to go alone but a travel crew would always be welcome. Probably gonna spend up to a couple thousand on gas. I want to see some new territory and share the experience of being totally on my own.
It's in the quiet places that I find myself most comfortable, finding beauty and symbols just from nature, while doing something different, testing the waters of the universal ocean, not just a tide pool. Letting go of the negative influence of other's thoughts. It's being present in those moments that creates lasting memory. Being outside yourself but within yourself. Listening to yourself, and the birds, and the wind, and the water. Listening to the combined hum in white noise of millions of snowflakes making groundfall. My thoughts and my footsteps, and a nearly endless road. What makes me happy is not for everyone. Not everyone is happy to know someone like me, for better or worse, I am what I am. I want to go talk to the birds and feed the fish and squirrels, and be there when the sun almost won't set.
The very last of the Ottawa 2017 collab beers from Beaus, this time with the Alliance of Natural History Museums of Canada (ANHMC)! Glacial Gruit is made with rosehips, birch syrup, fireweed, and yarrow, all organic of course! 6.3%, nice and malty, herbal and fresh! Love it! @beausallnatural#cheers#organicbeer#beaus#beausbrewery#beausarmy
The Athabasca Glacier, a major terminus of the Columbia Icefield and the most visited glacier in North America, has lost over half of its volume in the past 125 years. It continues to rapidly recede at a rate of approximately 5 meters per year due to climate change, and may disappear within a generation.
