Insta of the Month - October 2016 by Andrew Strain

Each month, I feature my best 'gram, as chosen by the hearts and emojis of my followers.

In October, I travelled to upstate New York for a friend's wedding. The fall colours of the Adirondacks put our west coast conifers to shame, with fiery displays of red and orange that stretched as far as the eye could see.

Though snow had yet to fall on the summit of Whiteface Mountain, rime had began to accumulate, coating the higher elevation trees with a white frosting that contrasted beautifully with the flaming leaves below.

For the first time since I started this series, an iPhone photo comes out on top. While shooting an assignment on BC's Sunshine Coast, this ridiculous cloud formation showed up right at sunset and belched out a rainbow. One of those "is this actually happening??" moments, to be sure.

It was a tight race this month between two images I shot on assignment for Destination BC / Tourism Northern BC last summer along the Alaska Highway. This aerial image from an evening of flightseeing with Liard Air (Northern Rockies Lodge) at Muncho Lake won the race, with 7 more likes at the time of posting.

This image was the grand finale to my recent assignment in Iceland - on my final night, just hours before my flight home, all of the elements lined up for me to capture this ridiculous photo of the aurora borealis above the iconic waterfall Goðafoss. Iceland overload achieved.

I was just in Haines, Alaska to cover the Freeride World Tour event - one of the down days had good afternoon weather, so I went on a photo flight over Glacier Bay National Park. I cranked up the processing on this one, and my followers loved it! I doubt it would look good in print, but, hey. It's all about the likes.
