  • 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 […]

      Photography is more about the Experience Last week, friend Mike Duffy and I headed out to Churn Creek which empties out of the Chilcotin Ark into the mid-Fraser River Canyon.

  • The Story Behind the Image

    Flickers arrived on our property last week and the sounds of them pecking trees, telephone poles and roof tops, made me thing of the time I captured this image along the shores of the Fraser River. I watched this flicker come and go from her nest and I remember marveling at how perfectly sized the […]

  • Chilcotin Ark
  • The Story Behind the Image

    I just love living on BC’s central plateau at this time of the year when different birds arrive weekly, filling the skies with song. When I hear the first blackbird, Canada goose, meadowlark, loon, and sandhill crane; I know that life is good. I am still alive, and the planet is still spinning. All else becomes […]
