    I am excited, Chris, at each new adventure and avenue that opens before you–the educator piece being one. It is breathtaking to see your views from the snowy Fraser Canyon trip; and I love your Exhibit of Rita’s Garden. The story you tell about your experience doing that is as fascinating as the photos you created. Here’s to you, and how you see the world, my friend! Thank you!

      Your thoughts are deeply appreciated Brenda. Your log on Kitsilano Beach still haunts me; I hope to get to it one day!

    Enjoyed the Newsletter and photos as usual, Chris, unable to stop beyond Hope?….that is why it is called beyond Hope!

      You’re right…beyond Hope it is!!! Hope begins in Hope only when travelling north!!

    Always inspiring, Chris. Love the story of how you were ‘blocked’ by the familiarity of Rita’s garden and were then able to break through with such unique and captivating images. Her garden will never look the same again!

      That is very true Dennis; I can’t wait for the colours to return…soon! Chris

    Your newsletter never fails to inspire me, Chris! Once again, I am reminded of the beauty of BC, particularly the Cariboo – Chilcotin. I love your statement before the road trip south…”Fortunately, the weather was unfavourable.” Only a passionate photographer like you would look forward to a drive through the Fraser Canyon in challenging conditions!
    As a retired teacher, I love that you have put together an educational package for the students of BC. I only wish I was still teaching so that I could make use of it! I only hope many BC teachers will access it to inspire and educate young students.
    I particularly love your photos of Rita’s Garden. Having walked around the grounds of your house and studio more than once, I can picture some of the areas in my mind and appreciate the natural beauty surrounding your home. I love the beautiful images, interpreted in your own unique style.
    Your newsletter came at a good time… a gray, overcast & chilly day in Langley on Family Day when I am missing my family, looking forward to Spring, escaping the confinements brought on by Covid, and maybe going on a road trip of my own!

    Love the pictures of the train, especially going through the long pass. My father was a CN man, so although it took him from us on Sunday, from the Miramichi to many places over NB, NS, it brought him safely back to us on Saturday, so I have always loved trains. Nice photos, Chris
