Tantalus Range - Beers, Birthdays & Bacon!

Klemen celebrating the good life!

My friend, Klemen Mali, an adventurer,  accomplished climber and mountain guide with Climb The Peaks turned 40 this year! And holding true to his adventurous spirit, he decided to host his party in the Tantalus Range with the Jim Haberal Hut as our accommodation and a helicopter for transportation. No 40th birthday party would be complete without a Keg of beer and all the meat you can eat including Bacon with every meal! The weekend started with a bit of uncertainty whether we would be able to land the helicopters or not, but the weather changed and we even managed to get a climb of Mt. Dione in. Can't wait to return to this place!

 

Bikram Yoga - Barrie

I ventured out east this spring and while I was there I managed to get some shooting time in at the Bikram Yoga studio in Barrie, Ontario. Everyone was so excited to be a part of this special session that studio owner Meghan H. had scheduled. I was welcomed into their practice and studio for an intense sweat. It was a ton of fun, and I was super impressed at the level of concentration, determination and focus everyone had while I ran around them and between them shooting away. Here are some of the results. You can check out their website here, or their facebook page, or give them a visit if you are in the area. The studio is gorgeous and really makes you want to be a part of the group there!!

Climbing the Karst Mountains in Yangshou, China

Earlier this winter I traveled to Asia where I was fortunate enough to climb amongst the Karst mountains. I was also lucky enough to find myself surrounded by some amazingly strong climbers and had a few opportunities to shoot. I have been sitting on these photos, but thought some of these athletes deserved to be showcased to you all.
