A new year, and a new adventure.

Happy New Year everyone! Hopefully everyone had a safe and fulfilling holiday!

It had been a while since I just hopped in my car and went looking for some scenes to capture, and even though it's winter I still need to get out and shoot! I have been wanting to get back to a place that I haven't been since I was a teenager, Kouchibouguac National Park. I used to go camping there with friends from junior high in the summers and I remember it being beautiful.

To be honest this photo trip I would have considered a bust a few years ago. I had one specific spot I wanted to go, and I couldn't get to it due to snow. I only ended up coming away with a handful of photos that I like, nothing like the grand scheme I had in my head. But that's how it goes sometimes when you are dealing with mother nature, and you just have to make the best of it!

All that being said, I have found something that truly makes me feel alive and I can't imagine not pursuing it with everything I have in me. Even when things don't go the way that I had originally planned, something positive can always come out of it.

Fast forward to me sitting in my car waiting for the ferry at the end of my trip. I had all day with my thoughts in my car, music blasting and singing at the top of my lungs, and something came to me. This "thing" that I am talking about will soon be disclosed to everyone but for now only a few people that I trust know about it as I piece how it will work together. It will probably be early March before everything becomes public, but you will begin to see little bits here and there of what I am ultimately striving towards. It's going to awesome, and I can't wait to bring you on this new adventure I'm planning!
