From time to time, it’s interesting to go “archiving” through one’s portfolio. It’s also humbling but you can also uncover some hidden gems. These images were created in July, 2009 during a kayaking trip in Jasper National Park. This was the second time that I ever kayaked, the first time being in The Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia, in 2001 or 2002.
