Recently, I had the opportunity to stay as a guest at Emerald Lake Lodge on assignment for Toque & Canoe . As this was to be my first visit to Emerald Lake I was quite thrilled at the opportunity. Honestly, I don’t know why I haven’t gone before. It’s stunning, with easy cross country ski trails (I’m a beginner) and spectacular views. While Alberta was experiencing a dry winter, just over the BC border at Emerald Lake Lodge, the snow was fabulous. I took this photo of Buckarooken playing snooker in the lodge. My husband is rather handsome if I say so myself. You can see more of my visit over on Toque & Canoe2 comments
I had a mini vacation at Hotel Arts in late summer. Toque & Canoe arranged the visit in exchange for a few photos. The hotel has recently renovated it’s rooms and they are gorgeous. I loved my stay and my images have been snapped up by both the Hotel and the Interior Design Firm -which is an added bonus. The art direction narrative was “sexy”. Ken and I pulled out all the stops to do this Helmut Newton inspired image. I miss summer already.
