Jasper National Park

2008 • Posted by Kai @ 2:57 PM

Jasper National Park located in the province of Alberta, and it’s the most northerly and largest national park in the Canadian Rockies. The park is part of a spectacular World Heritage Site, which includes the glaciers of the Columbia Icefield, hot springs, lakes, waterfalls, and none-the-less rugged and mountainous scene. Also there are abounding and various wildlife in the park, which include elk, caribou, moose, mule deer, white-tailed deer, grizzly bear, black bear, beaver, mountain goat, and bighorn sheep, etc.

Jasper is my most favorite national park in Canada, and also this is the third time I spent my summer in Rockies. There are always some surprises every time I go there because the scene varies with different weather and seasons. However, I have not get the chance to travel there in the winter time and I know that the snowy scene would be so much different to summer scene. I will definitely go to Rockies once in the snow season.

Again, here are some digital photos that I captured in Jasper National Park. I am still looking for a reliable professional photo lad to process my slides.

Daniel Simon’s Automotive Concepts

2008 • Posted by Kai @ 3:01 PM

I always like to draw cars, motorcycles, & characters since when I was in high-school, and my sketch books have full of this kind of stuff. Move on to the digital era, I found a very cool 3D work done by Daniel Simon, who is a German automotive futurist and the founder of Daniel Simon Studio where he is designing virtual vehicles for his brand Cosmic Motors, published in his first book “Cosmic Motors”. In parallel he continues to be a car designer, and offers his services to a premium car maker.

There are a lot of amazing works on Daniel Simon’s website and it’s worth to spend sometime to take a look.

Glacier National Park

2008 • Posted by Kai @ 1:22 PM

Glacier National Park is located in the north of Montana state, bordering the Canadian provinces of Alberta and British Columbia. Glacier National Park contains two mountain ranges, sometimes referred to as the southern extension of the Canadian Rockies mountain ranges, with over 130 named lakes, more than 1,000 different species of plants and hundreds of species of animals. (Wikipedia)

Glacier National Park doesn’t have the fancy facilities as many as Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park, and there is only one main route connected between east and west entrance, due to the difficulty of the terrain. Road was closed at before Logan Pass Visitor Center from St. Mary Entrance, because the snow still piled up to 2 meters high when I was traveling there in June this year. So I didn’t spend too much time hanging around in this park.

I believe there are some pictures that I shot with slide films but I haven’t get them to process yet. Here is the digital version of Glacier National Park album.
