Hi everyone. I believe in sharing some of the most gorgeous places in the world and like others here, seeing what others' photography work is like. North America is a magnificent landscape with everything from mountains to plains, deserts to rainforests and major cities to wilderness where not a single soul can be seen for days. I hope to explore more adventures on other continents, but for now, I give you all a showcase of some of the diverse things to behold and be inspired by in North America! Cheers! Also I have the address of videos of various places in Canada if you follow my YouTube link as posted. If you would like to chat about photography, you can reach me at Davidrad18@yahoo.ca Happy photography! If you would like to see an intense thunderstorm with spectacular lightning on my YouTube profile, look for user Davemeister22 and go to the video search tab and type in this: A Severe Thunderstorm With Tornado Potential Strikes Edmonton AB, July 18th, 2009 Happy storm chasing!

Thanks, Christos. These mountains in Jasper, Canada have been an inspiration for me since I was a small child.

Kind regards,


Thanks very much, Christos. This was such an incredible view of the storm!!

Best regards,


Thanks, Christos. It was such a moment of contrast, with the beauty of the rainbow and dramatic dark clouds of the thunderstorm.



Thanks, Andre. This is a very interesting and gorgeous area.



Cooking Lake is a very shallow lake with a small inflow drainage basin and I can see how it has always been a cyclical lake for water levels. However, the Edmonton area's precipitation levels have dropped from 480mm in the average year historically to just 380mm in the average year since 2000. This shows that much of the area of central Alberta near Edmonton is getting much drier and that's being reflected by lake levels in the area. The evapotranspiration (precipitation water loss through evaporation) has increased dramatically since the late '90s/ early 2000's overall and is even lowering lakes in the area that have a healthy, large drainage basin. This region used to get enough moisture to support many lakes/wetlands, but the Edmonton region has crossed over the semi-arid threshold (below 400mm precipitation in the average year). The world's population has increased from 1 billion in 1900 to over 7 billion today with China and India having many more cars on the road than even 20 years ago. This has affected the climate greatly and has lowered or dried out many Alberta Lakes, not just Cooking Lake. If this trend continues, the Edmonton area will be more like arid badlands and treeless grassland like around the Drumheller area. The southern/ southeastern Alberta semi-desert short grass/mixed grass prairie climate and vegetation zone is in the process of shifting north/ northwestwards in response to generally increasing temperatures and decreased precipitation in the area.

Very nice photo L.. Dave and Maggie
