Another interesting flying conditions: Heavy, multi-layer clouds, blue sky, bright sunshine, dark ground areas. I covered North Ridge, Batchelor area, North Thompson River, Westsyde, Mt Mara, Tranquille Creek valley, Lac du Bois Area. The Tranquille-Criss Creek, normally deep and steep valley was under clouds. This created very interesting visual effect. See also nice Sundog (Halo) effect in the c

I had a rare opportunity to see (and interact) with young (small) and very cute Bobcat by my airport hangar. I noticed small footprints in the snow the pervious day. This time I saw it. It look to me from my distance like a more fluffy domestic cat. Eventually, as I came closer, I noticed the typical hairs from its ears. I saw from the footprints around the fences that it looked for way out of the
Spectacular atmospheric conditions were captured in this late afternoon video. High clouds above, low clouds just below, orange glow from setting down sun, rainbow, blue sky, spectacular clouds colors and shapes…. Majority of my flight was very peaceful and relaxing, but also with sharp awakening by a local turbulence. Good aerial view of Batchelor Hill area, Brock, glowing in the sun Mt Peter,

Finally, some decent weather for very nice late afternoon flight. This is short video from above Brock and North Shore areas. I forgot to turn my main camera on, so I had to turn back and start again. The sky was spectacular with beautiful effect from sun setting behind the hills.

I was waiting whole month for this moment due to unreasonable weather. It was worth of wait. The air was smooth like silk which took off the usual nasty weather related surprises. I am showing very detail views of Bachelor Heights residential area (from N to S) and Tranquille Farm (Padova City). I flew low level in 3 different directions to show that mysterious place. It was very good, 96 km long

Masses of installed windmills standing still because there was no wind for many days. Video taken during our holiday in Pincher Creek area. The air was still and very smoky from the forest fires. The farmers' fields covered with solar panels in that area did not produce much of power either. There is nothing and there will be nothing to withstand more than 2 days without a classical power generati

Finally, another nice flight after long pause due to bad weather. Everything looks even more spectacular with the contrasting snow covered and bare surfaces. Check it out

This was my 3rd attempt to see the effect of the 2021 devastating wildfire in Monte Lake area. The bad turbulence always won over my bravery. Not this time. I stacked with it and even when I complicated it with my 1 pm take-off during heat laden air. The timing guaranteed good bumps. I was not disappointed. The visibility was much better then during my usual early morning take offs, but the turbul
