Autumn Days

Over the next couple of weeks the trees turn various shades of red, yellow and orange. Today was a beautiful day for viewing the changing colours of Fall foliage. Early in the morning it was chilly, but the afternoon was crisp and sunny. With Autumn colours in full swing and the leaves changing more each day it won’t be long before they are all on the ground.

Tiny Human Lost In The Majesty Of Nature

The photo depicts just how small humans are in comparison to the nature that surrounds us. The climber was balancing precariously on the granite wall, stopping occasionally to put more chalk on their hands and add more climbing protection. Click on the image to see a larger version. Remember to always take the road less traveled…

A Distinctive Shade of Blue

A rainy day is a great time to look at images I’ve taken a few years ago. Recently, I came across this image I took early one morning at Moraine Lake. On my computer I spent some time post processing the image. Perhaps, some clouds in the sky would have created a stronger image, but still a nice photo of an iconic mountain location.

Mount Baker

Mount Baker has the second most thermally active crater in the Cascade Range after Mount Saint Helens. After Mount Rainier, Mount Baker is the most heavily glaciated of the Cascade Range volcanoes. It is one of the snowiest places in the world and in 1999 it set the world record for recorded snowfall in a single season with 2,900 centimetre’s. This image shows the 3,286 metre mountain covered in fresh snow. Click on the photo to see a larger version.

A Beautiful Province

I’m always trying to learn new things. When I’ve been out taking images with my camera I’ve also brought along my drone. This is my first attempt at creating a video and adding music. In the lower right hand corner you can click on the button ‘Enter full screen’. You can also select the video quality at 1080p resolution so it’s nice and clear. No wildlife was harassed in the making of this video.

Happy Holidays

I came across this herd of Roosevelt elk grazing in a meadow. With the setting sun and frosted trees in the background it created a beautiful winter scene. Roosevelt elk have a golden brown coat during the summer and a longer, grayish brown coat during the winter. Their legs, head and neck remain dark brown year round. Have a wonderful Christmas and happy new year. Click on the photo to see a larger version.

Autumn Colours

A beautiful Fall day to witness the trees and shrubbery that are now turning brilliant shades of yellow, orange and red. The mountains had a light dusting of snow on their peaks. A couple of curious Grey Jays or Whiskey Jacks kept me company as I was taking images.

The Rock Climber

This photo of a rock climber standing on a small ledge shows how insignificant a person can be when compared to nature. The Stawamus Chief is a giant granite monolith that is world famous for its climbing. Sometimes referred to as ‘Yosemite North’, it has immense vertical walls, long cool slabs and beautiful cracks that provides a variety of climbing. I was taking photos late in the day when the setting sun was casting a warm glow on the granite face. Click on the image to see a larger version.

Snow Plume

In Joffre Lakes Provincial Park strong winds on the summit of Mount Matier ( 2783 m ) created this snow plume. Below the mountain lies the Anniversary glacier which is popular with backcountry skiers. It was a beautiful cold morning with lots of fresh snow. Click on the photo to see a larger version.

Forest Trees Drink From The Fog

I never get tired of photographing fog moving through the trees. The scene is constantly changing and requires patience on the part of the photographer. Recently, I was reading that the Earth’s tallest trees, the California redwoods, rely on characteristic coastal fog to reach their towering heights—and that fog may be diminishing, according to new research. Climatologists have found that coastal fog has decreased by 30% over the last six decades. The redwoods receive much needed moisture and nutrients from the coastal fog, particularly during the dry summer season. Click on the photos to see a larger version.
