  • Churn Creek – it’s rising quickly

    For the past three weeks I have made a trip out to Churn Creek Protected Area to photograph in the grasslands. Churn Creek drains from the Camelsfoot Range, travels through the protected area, and empties out into the Fraser River near the Gang Ranch. During this time period, warm summer weather has come to central […]

As we approached the waterfall, we noticed the back-lit spray was silhouetting the foreground vegetation and […]

One of the sights I often see are the dead vehicles […]

  • CD Release Barn Party!

    Only in the Cariboo is a new CD released in a hay barn! Last night Stan Provost, Curtis Lueke, and Sheldon Caverly, released their very first CD “Stolen Signs” in Gus Horn’s hay barn. What a fantastic evening! Outside was a spectacular electrical lightning storm with thundering sound effects, but nature couldn’t compete with the electrical storm […]
