Tai O, Hong Kong 
A small fishing village that’s built on stilts above the tidal flats of Lantau Island, it was once told to be a base for smuggling and piracy operations in and out of china. Though popular with tourists, I’ve read that even the fishing lifestyle that has supported the families here for generations is starting to die out. Was a nice place to wander around in the early morning!

Takakkaw Falls, Alberta. 

One of the tallest falls in Canada at 1260ft, I was amazed by the aggressiveness of the water hitting that first ledge. Really glad I did the drive, which was spectacular in itself, up to the see the fall on the way back to Vancouver.

Lions Gate Bridge, Vancouver. 

Sleepless night and not being happy where I ended setting up for sunrise had me driving right around the park and running down to here to try and catch it. Think I got a timelapse from here and a few big cruise ships passed by. Man those things are massive.

Vermilion Lake. 
I was thinking of doing a little series of ‘The view behind the lens’ on my trips. It’s funny that some of these beautiful views can have a completely different scene directly behind it. In this case a hill running steeply up to a big 4-6 lane hwy. Even so, an incredible place! #notcomplaining

The Rockies, Alberta. 

Back in Perth now, I apologise for all the non-tattoo posts, things will be back to normal for this page now. Please follow @chrisrigoniphoto if you want to see all the photos from this trip and future ones as well as small cuts of timelapses from a number of locations. 45,000 images to go through from this trip to Alaska and Canada so should be a fair bit getting posted over there. Thank you!

19 image stitched panorama of Denali from the south. 
I was told by a local that these huge river beds never completely fill during the warm summer months, the paths the glacier water runs through are constantly changing. An ever evolving pattern being cut through the river beds so no two weeks look the same. 
(Really struggled to put this together, remove the haze and get the colours right. Think I’ll try again with some more experience behind me. Though the mountains just look weak. A different crop maybe?)
Denali, Alaska. July 22.

Johnston Canyon. Alberta. 

For some reason the hike through this canyon and out to the Ink Pots hurt me. I think the lack of sleep and poor diet over the past few weeks had caught up with me. Beautiful none the less.

Peyto Lake, Banff National Park. 
The intense blue colour is due to fine dust or ‘Glacier Flour’ contained in the water that soaks up the other colour waves and reflects this beautiful bright blue. 
I was up at 5am most mornings but was at Bow Lake for sunrise on this morning and wish I had come here instead. Hiked a few hundred feet up from here to start and soaked up the morning sun, read my science and took a quick timelapse. Dropped down to this point to get a bit closer to take this 14 image stitched panorama.

Got back to Canada a few days ago and bee lined it east to The Rockies! Moraine Lake at 6,183ft with a few of the Ten Peaks, which have been some of my favourite mountains on this trip, reflected in the glacier fed water.  15 image stitched pano at sunset. Banff, Canada. July 26, 2014.
