It’s been a particularly cold and snowy winter this year in South Western BC. Considerable snowfall and cold Arctic outflow winds have made for frosty conditions, large snowbanks and sketchy driving conditions around town and along the highway. The roads are in poort shape, significant maintenance will be required come the Spring. It’s been really … More A real winter!
Well, I guess this is kind of my “hottest 100” from the year of 2016. Approximately chronological, these photographs are a visual diary of some of my favourite and fun memories of things seen and places been from what really was a great year for us. Hoping 2017 is an even more exciting year of … More 2016 in pictures
Had to go out for a quick drive and capture something in all this beautiful snow. Spent some time skiing in the Callaghan and left the camera at home. The snow after dark makes for some marvellous scenes. The supreme silence is such a sublime sense to it.
Every winter, large numbers of Bald Eagles come from all directions on the North American continent and congregate along the coast of Southern BC.

Lukla had a blast playing in the rock pools, observing a family of otters out in the water and chasing her ball into the … More Thankful for the Autumn colours
The plan was set, we met up at Adams and headed to Whistler to tackle the Sproatt Mountain climb and Lord of the Squirrels descent. It was a beautiful morning and it looked to be the perfect day for taking it on. After some pretty sustained climbing from the moment you set out, we left … More Riding bikes across mountains
We blasted off from work on Friday afternoon straight for a ferry to Gibsons, the landing point for the Sunshine Coast from the lower mainland. Ferries weren’t as busy as we imagined and we got the boat we hoped for. A quick stop for a bite was all we needed on the way to Earls … More The Sunshine Coast Trail
Alpine Lake adventures… I was itching to get out and hike into some more of the incredible places we are surrounded by in the sea to sky area. A long weekend needed to have some form of a hike/camp trip, even if it was just for one night. My interest in Astrophotography has me chomping … More Alpine Lake Hike/Camp for BC Day
