Rebuilding a ‘sense of place’ in the South Cariboo: I have just started a new project. Somehow, on my journey to explore and photograph the entire Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region, I have drifted apart from the very place I call home; 100 Mile House and surrounding area. So now, when at home, I will go […]
I decided to bring my camera this morning when I went for my daily walk with my dog, Duggan. He took me down to a little marsh in front of the house. I love this time of year as the colours are muted. It’s sort of like November, but rather than the colours disappearing, they […]
The Chilanko marsh offered a totally different experience to the Bowron River marsh. As you can see above, there were dozens of exciting channels to explore. The soundscape was beyond any marsh I have been in; like being at the symphony!
Last weekend my photo companion Mike Duffy and I drove west to explore the Chilanko Marsh. I had never been there before but as you can see it is very different than the Bowron River marsh where we had been the week before. In the image above, first light hits the Coast Mountains in the distance […]

Suddenly two loons came flying around the corner splashing their way up the river right beside our canoe. They […]
During a quiet and peaceful evening paddle down the the Bowron River we came across a female moose having a snack of tiny willow buds. Of course the most delicious ones were at the very top…almost out of reach!! Enjoy!
This was the view from camp where we cooked supper over an MSR stove and listened to the sounds of the Common Snipe as they dove for bugs high above us. The Bowron Lake marsh has to be one of the most spectacular wetlands in the world. On our evening paddle we photographed beaver, moose […]
It was 6 am on Mothers Day when we came around a bend in the Bowron River. This mother moose had full intentions of sleeping in on Mothers Day, until we, the first tourists of the season, came paddling by. Not yet used to the daily parade of park canoeists, the moose got up and […]
As mentioned in my last post, my friend Mike Duffy and I went to the Bowron River Marsh to photograph. I was shooting for my new Cariboo Chilcotin Coast book and these Cariboo wetlands are one of the most spectacular in the world. Up at 4:15 am, Mike and I paddled out to the marsh […]
