Tuesday, May 18th 2021, 10:35 am - Candid Closeup is a weekly segment that features Canadians from coast to coast who love to share their weather. In this episode, The Weather Network's Kim MacDonald speaks with Michael Nikolai, a photographer from Edmonton. From grizzly bears and severe storms to the cityscapes of his hometown, this Albertan captures it all.

Michael Nikolai loves to photograph the beauty that surrounds Edmonton, Alta., but it’s the storms that really get his adrenaline pumping.

In this episode of Candid Closeup, Kim MacDonald learns about his hits and misses with Alberta’s wild weather, but it’s his grizzly bear family encounter that proves to be the most heart racing photo session of all.
