    Thanks once again Chris…transporting us into the myth/magic perception of seeing the world through other eyes.

    1. Thanks Sage. The water from that marsh flows right by your front door! I’m sure it has inspired you on many an occasion when writing.

    Hi Chris. I love reading about your photos and what is behind them. They are quite beautiful. Hopefully the workshop for the workshop with the Montreal Camera Club will not be cancelled again because of the Covid so I can learn your methods. Evelyn Young

    1. Hi Evelyn. I have my toes crossed. I’m so excited and looking forward to the Montreal workshop. I hope to see you there! Chris

  3. Very nice work Chris. I was particularly impressed with the various aspen tree compositions!

    1. Great chatting today Chris! Thanks.

    Since I destroyed my computer by spilling coffee on it, and then being delayed in getting to Apple for repair [due to the virus], I have tried without success to get outside with my camera. Viewing these images has given me new interest in getting out there…………. perhaps my creativity is waking up after a long sleep. Even though I don’t have my computer I do have my camera! Thanks Chris

    1. Pick it up Joan and enjoy a journey of visual discovery. It will help heal. Wishing you the very best Joan. Chris

  5. I knew that you had been doing photography for a long time, but since 1918 🙂

    1. Plus, I have another 100 years ahead of me!!

    Chris, I find your work awesome, fresh, and most inspiring. This is the type of photography I am yearning
    towards. Your are the perfect teacher for me. You mention a 100-400 lens, which I have been debating whether to get or not for some time. I would appreciate you sharing some of your experience with that lens.Thanks you for your sharing.

    1. Thank you for your thoughts of appreciation. That lens is one of my favourites; it comes highly recommended!

    As always, quite remarkable and inspiring, especially the photos of your local marsh. Should mention though that if you were at Ape Lake in 1918, you’re setting the record for the oldest artist photographer!

    1. ….and I have another 100 years ahead of me!!!! I have a secret formula!!

    Beautiful tour Chris, most of all to see how you see. My latest favorites of your work: the textured brush strokes in the marsh so close to us here. Amazing! And the patterns in your pictures from Ape Lake are stunning. Thank you for sharing your vision.

    1. Yes, so close to home! There is beauty everywhere!! So happy to hear you Brenda. Cheers to you both…stay well. Chris

    Every time! Every time I fall in love with your work. Makes me want to scrap my double exposures only camera.
    Seriously, these images are very exceptional. I believe they are soul images shared with the nature you feel through the lens.
    Humbly yours,

    Hi Chris. I love your tree creations. Their movement reminds me of the symbiotic relationship we have with trees as we breathe. They are the planet’s lungs! Your creation of the explosion of colour and new life really resonates with me. It reminds me of a saying “Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky!” Glad to see that your creativity has not been “locked down!!”

    Just beautiful.

    1. Thanks Kathy.

  13. Hi Chris. There’s something about two of your images – “With Intention … 1” and “With Intention … 3”. I really like the subtle tonal contrasts and complementary colours! Great newsletter!

  14. Laura Dewar says: Reply

    Beautiful! I love the images of the glacial run-off near Ape Lake. Thanks so much for sharing!

    1. I had never seen anything like it before…it was great fun searching for those compositions. Thanks.

    I really like your Impressionistic series of the Walker Valley. Beautiful to look at; The Abstraction with Intention series is really mesmerizing! All those “brush” stokes creates a fantastic texture.
    As always, inspiring!

    1. Always appreciative hearing from you Normand. Have a creative day!

  16. Great photographs, Chris. I always love your work. I always love to see the Cariboo.

    1. Thank you!
