Sometimes it is worthwhile to step back and try another viewpoint. A sunset is beautiful enough on its own, but the beauty it imparts to that which surrounds it can be truly magical. Here is another take on the sunset […]

I am a geek. I love my technology, if it has batteries and a screen there’s a good chance I love it. Of course when you go camping you have to leave that all behind (or at least keep it […]
Any time I come back from any place in which I took pictures, once of the first things I do it sort through them and set aside the “good” ones. The good ones get edited, and the rest get forgotten. […]
I snapped this one candidly while we were gathered together under the Arthur Laing Bridge near Vancouver, BC.
Ever since tragedy struck this spot has played a significant role in our lives. It’s an out-of-the-way area under the Arthur Laing Bridge. We have made many visits here with family to gather and reflect. Many times I have been […]
There’s a peculiar breed of photographer out there that doesn’t like retouching. For some reason they consider it “cheating”. I have no idea why. Every photo ever taken is a compromise It’s the result of a set of choices you […]
I’m just not sure about this one to be honest. This photo had so many distracting elements that I was pretty sure it was going to end up in the recycle bin. But I just thought the subject was too […]
Seattle is home to one of the most disgusting attractions I have ever seen, but I can’t argue that it isn’t fascinating. It’s the Seattle gum wall, an entire back alley near Pike Place Market that is covered in gum. […]
There are many, many beautiful cities in the world, but I have to think that very few of them are as geographically lucky as Vancouver. Here is a view of the downtown peninsula as seen from Jericho Beach.
This is the Athabasca Glacier, part of the immense Columbia Icefield and the source of the mighty Athabasca River. Apparently it is the most visited glacier in the world. It’s also melting too fast (and that’s not good).
If you back off a ways from the graffiti and the red doors you’ll discover this view which shows of the increasing contrast between old and new in Vancouver. On the left is the new and modern Woodward’s building, while […]
I took this one on the same day as these other shots from Vancouver’s Gastown neighbourhood and it sat on my hard drive until today. It was another one of those photos that I just wasn’t quite sure what to […]
The “New” Amsterdam Cafe in Vancouver is pretty much exactly what it looks like. I always find it interesting to observe the people who hang around out front. It really is an eclectic group, no stereotypes here. Then again; in […]
The weather around Kentucky Alleyne Provincial Park can only be described as schizophrenic. One moment you are baking under the sun, the next you are being drenched by torrential rain and surrounded by thunder and lightning. And then it clears […]
One thing that I loved about Hawaii when I visited a couple of years back was the way the weather could change in an instant. One second I could be enjoying the hot tropical sun, and the next I might […]
During a camping trip to the beautiful Kentucky Lake near Merritt, British Columbia, our campsite was visited by this adorable little fellow (or lady, it’s hard to say). He hung around for ages often eating right out of our hands. […]
The Road to Hana is probably one of the most scenic drives in the entire world. I drove it twice during my stay in Maui, and it was well worth it both times. It winds its way around the edge […]
Here’s an alternate take on the same sunset in Lahaina, Maui. I am always fascinated with how different the same scene can feel with just a change in perspective. To me, where the other version conveys a feeling of peace […]
One of the most striking attractions in Hawaii is the black sand beaches. Of course where you have black sand, you also have black rocks which provide a stunning contrast to the deep blue of the oceans around them. Maui, […]
After you descend the staircase at Athabasca Falls you are treated to this amazing view of the Athabasca River. It is truly awe-inspiring how massive and empty it all seems. Jasper National Park.
