  • The Story Behind the Image

    I just published my May photographic Newsletter which talked about the ‘Gift of Light’. When looking through  my imagery, I came across this image which spoke so explicitly about the Gift of Light that I wanted to share it’s story with you. Rita, along with friend Mike Duffy and I, were camping on Shack Lake, […]

    One day while exploring the Chilcotin grasslands, I came across this lone cabin set amidst the most incredible scent of wild sagebrush. At first I thought it must have been a cowboy’s trail cabin, but no, it was a shepherds cabin. This shepherd travelled dozens of miles up and down the Fraser River canyon lands, […]

I remember hiking for miles and hardly being able to see a big horn sheep! They looked so small. Seeing and then getting close enough to photograph tiny birds was […]

    How Ancient is this Piece of Wood? I was exploring a new Canadian landscape at the foothills of the Coast Mountains; one which was being revealed for the very first time by the retreating Fyles Glacier. As I roamed with my camera, marveling at new soils and first generation vegetation, I came across this small […]

  • Yoga Retreat – Part II

    Last week I happened to find 7  beautiful women of the wild west Chilcotin doing yoga at ‘The Dean on Nimpo’ Resort. One might think that nothing much goes on when you drive through Nimpo Lake and Anahim Lake on the way to Bella Coola, but as you can see, one would be mistaken! Overlooking […]
