Canadian Rockies Reference Packs

General / 05 June 2017
Recently took a trip to the Canadian Rockies, where I found some of the most amazing and inspirational scenery - lots of fantastic lakes, glaciers, valleys and of course mountains. I've managed to take some very rare photos of remote locations that you can only access or see during certain times of year (such as Athabasca Glacier, Frozen Bow Lake, Lake Louise), and made them available in reference packs on my gumroad, check them out! https://gumroad.com/l/rockies-pack-1https://gumroad.com/l/rockies-pack-2https://gumroad.com/l/rockies-pack-3
