      Thank you Ernie!

  2. The very tragic photos of the fires, as well as the beauty of the 105 and Baskerville leave us thinking of our friends and neighbours in the Cariboo. Still our “home”

    Wonderful newsletter and photography – fires out west – Barkerville ( a winter wonderland) . I do not think Remco Wijnhorst will have trouble finding people interested in his vacation rental property on Horsefly Lake. Beautiful home – beautiful scenery. Thanks Chris

    Thank you, Thank you. Having been in the area as the smoke was still in places these pictures sure hit home.
    Having lived in the Caribou was hard to really believe. These pictures give it the respect it deserves. Quiet, clear, soft, emotional and respectful.
    It will come back but the beauty will never not be there. These amazing picture show just that.
    Thankyou!

      Thank you Vera. So happy to hear how much you appreciate the images. It’s an honour to photograph in this region.

  10. Thank you Chris… a tragedy of fire but some of the shots are superb. It is hard to imagine Lee’s Corner is gone as well as my hunting cabin at Pyper Lake.

    Thank you so much. Will your book be out at the Medieval Market? We entertained family from England days before the fires started and took them to all the places you have shown in the Newsletter. We wish to send a copy to them and have one for ourselves.

      Thank you Maggie. I am trying to get it done asap. Yes, hopefully in time for Medieval market. See you there.

    Chris: I am totally and completely excited about your new location for workshops. I can’t wait for the schedule to come out – I remember Barkerville from the drive for the canoe trips on the Bowron.

As always, I have enjoyed the little samples of your work that you highlight in your newsletters. You have an amazing eye and ability to capture things with your camera. I am excited about your new projects, keep ‘m coming!

    Well, you have done it again, the fire shots are fantastic, so sorry so much was destroyed, how ever it provided you with a great subject matter, and the history has been well captured.
    thanks, Bill & Joyce
