Late season hikes on Enderby Cliffs can be unpredictable. On this day we were in snow, fog, sun, mud, wet, cold, and more, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not breathtaking and majestic. The fog added mystery and grandeur compared to other photos I’d taken there, and somehow a depth. The people created perspective and...

Panoramic view of Calgary on Thanksgiving weekend just when the sun disappeared over the Rocky Mountains to the west. The warm glow filtered over the entire scene of this East-facing view on a brisk autumn evening. Shot with a Nikon D810, 70-200 lens at 200mm, stitched panorama, f13 at 2 seconds each. Native...

While driving back from the McCrea Lake trailhead near Revelstoke we stopped for this amazing view of the Columbia River just before it flows into Upper Arrow Lake. Shot with a Nikon D810, PC-E 45mm, f/13 for 4 seconds, iso 64. Used a 3-stop nd filter to bring the sky into range. Beautiful area that I look forward to...

The Fraser River near Mt. Robson in August. Not the same mighty Fraser River I know from it’s travels further down the province, but a clear emerald beauty rushing through this canyon in the Rockies not too far from it’s head waters. So nice. Shot with a Nikon D810, iso 64, f13, and polariser.

Spear grass, heat, coyotes, a heavy backpack and other allergy inducing grasses almost got the best of me hiking to get this shot of Oyama in full production. Looking northeast, this photograph shows the isthmus between Wood Lake and Kalamalka Lake in late July and late day. Shot with a Nikon D810 and 45mm lens...

Forest fires in the area help create this colourful view of Cosens Bay at twilight during a very dry period in the summer of 2017. Captured with a 19mm Nikon, polarizer, and graduated neutral density filter, and a ton of mozzies flying around my face. The only place I didn’t spray it on thick. Yeesh. Kalamalka Lake...

Recent 12 ft. float-mounted triptych panorama installation at a residence up at Predator Ridge on June 30. Big stairwell, needed 2×12 lumber and ladders for  scaffolding over the stairs. Also needed extra manpower to pull this one off. What do you get when you cross a retired accountant with a retired aeronautics...

Water can be so beautiful yet devastating. It’s amazing to see the water so high at Kin Beach on Okanagan Lake as this photograph shows, but behind me and all around the lakes are sand bags, sand barriers, people working and concerned; millions of dollars in damage. Shot with Nikon D810, pc-e 45mm at f13, 3 minutes,...
