      It was fun looking back at some of the old images! I got exciting all over again! I think I’ll go find that place on the ground and check it out from a totally new perspective!! Cheers, Sylvia.

  2. Especially Love the abstract aerial shots of algae patterns, Chris

    Wondrous, Chris! Viewing your spectacular and interesting images, it makes one wonder what all the fuss is about on this tiny crust of this world in these days of viruses and social distancing. I keep my eye on the beauty of nature’s landscape, and will drink this in and celebrate what is integrative today. I am with you in that, my friend!

      Hi Brenda. Great to see you on the ski trail today! There is no need to ‘social distance’ out in the grasslands!!

  5. I adore the Cariboo and have spent many days and hours tramping through it with my trusty Nikon. Thank you for a truly magnificent look at your region about which I know only a little. At 85 I may not have the opportunity to visit your places but I sure enjoyed the peek through your lense(s).

      I thought of your favourite poem about the stone Joan as I made that abstract of the cleft in the rock!!

    what a joyous collection of natural abstract Chris! I am reminded of Porter’s chaos theory. I am sensing that you were the captured one that day! Thank you for sharing and inspiring.

      Great to hear from you Darrell. I’ll look up Porter’s Chaos theory!

    I was just searching our a heart shaped lake in La Mauricie! I’m so happy to no longer in need of wondering where or what. I can just love the shade, light, frame, colour, motion, story or not. Of your marvelous images. Thanks Chris.

      The heart shaped lake was a lucky find from the plane. It was a beauty! Thanks.

    I love the pictures of the Calcareous Lake – the shapes, the colours, the textures, wonderful images. I always enjoy your newsletters. Thanks.

      Thank you Jackie; always fun to share!

  11. After paddling against the wind all morning, I stood, exhausted, by the lake shore. I stared at the sky, my teacher & guide at my side. “Beautiful day,” I said, trying not to show my fatigue. Teenage pride. “Glad it’s not raining.”
    “Fifteen minutes,” he said. He looked up.
    “What’s that?” I asked.
    “It’ll be raining in fifteen minutes,” he said. “Better check your tent, Schultzie.”
    I checked and adjusted the fly. Good thing, too. It rained fifteen minutes later.
    Thanks for your knowledge of nature and for the wonderful photos over the years,Chris . . . and for keeping us safe (and dry) back in the 70’s. I’ll be forever grateful.

    Delightful Chris. Always a great journey to tag along with your exploits. Last Friday I shared the Jokulhlaup story and photographs I took when we explored Ape Lake and Jacobsen Lake together eight or nine years ago..The Williams Lake Field Naturalists were duly impressed..

    Hi Chris, Nice to see some of your older photos again. In particular I loved the aerial shots of the C
    alcareous lakes. Excellent abstract compositions. Love the vastness of the Churn Creek grasslands especially when I compare your open spaces to tiny Ireland!!! Janie

      Thanks Jane. I love the tiny spaces in Ireland too. So intimate. I’d love to photograph the country in its entirety!.

    Chris..I love that land. You introduced it to me for my drive to our Bella Coola workshop 3 years ago, warning me about the gumbo. Seeing that land again through your eyes makes it more magical and spectacular. Thank you…again my friend

    Lots of familiar and wonderful images there Chris. We should do that again this summer, plus the long awaited stroll through the grasslands together.
