July 23 – Nancy Greene Lake (again)

I wasn’t planning on going anywhere this week as the weather forecast was claiming rain in almost all of my favorite directions, but Thursday afternoon I checked the forecast and it looked clear up towards the Grand Forks and Castlegar areas so I packed up 

Fraser Valley Farm Views

This was actually from July 14th after my previous post where I was checking out a trail in Manning Park. I returned to Hope at around 7PM after the park visit but still too much daylight left to go back home. I typically drive the

July 14 – Around Dewdney Trail

This isn’t a full hike as I only planned on spending 4-5 hours out there, but I was curious to check out the Dewdney Trail from the Cascade parking lot in Manning Park as I had only been there once before when it was far 

Rhododendron Flats in Manning Park

Rhododendron Flats in Manning Park

I travel through E.C. Manning Park pretty frequently as the drive itself is pretty fun in my car, and I do also like to make stops in the park along the way. I’ve stopped at the Rhododendron Flats area a few times in the past

June 10 – Cache Creek / Hwy 1

My First Anamorphic Test – Kowa 16-S

I was bored and took my video gear out to the park. This is the Kowa 16-S anamorphic lens attached to an older Nikkor 50mm f/2 and adapted to the Panasonic GH5. All shot handheld at 24p. The GH5’s IBIS does make the vignetting worse

November 14, 2019 – CRX Night Photography

This was mostly just a night cruise before all the roads freeze. I took my CRX up the highway a little past Sicamous for fun, stopping at this particular stretch of the Trans Canada Hwy that has a smaller road running parallel. For this shot

November 5, 2019 – Barnes Lake

This is a location I recently found while poking around maps and street view. The location is not far from Ashcroft, BC and I timed my arrival for around sunset. The “recreation site” I took this from is basically a single campsite on the side
