June 10 – Cache Creek / Hwy 1

  For this trip I took one of my favorite drives along Highway 8 around Spences Bridge in order to look for trains along Highway 1 (Trans Canada) between Lytton and Cache Creek. While I did find some potential spots to do some shooting from,

May 27, 2020 – Slocan Valley

  A frequent drive for me is Highway 6 from the Castlegar area up toward New Denver. This winding highway goes up into the mountains and also down around Slocan Lake. This particular spot is actually the Slocan Lake viewpoint which you can stop at

May 27, 2020 – Highway 31A

  One of my favorite drives is around the Slocan Valley and on this particular trip I was originally planning to check out a waterfall up past Nakusp. On my return trip I figured there was enough daylight left to quickly head up Highway 31A

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

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

Old Rail Bridge – Highway 97

I was headed north on Highway 97 to Chasm and I noticed this rail bridge over an old stretch of road. Wanted to get a closer look as it seemed odd for part of a road to just be sitting there going nowhere. Had to

September 19, 2019 – Nancy Greene Lake Loop Trail

While I had just stopped at this lake last week for an evening photo, I was interested in doing the loop trail which goes around the lake. The trail starts and ends at the main beach by the parking lot and follows the water closely 

September 11, 2019 – Nancy Greene Lake

September 11, 2019 – Nancy Greene Lake

I decided to do a later than normal departure from Kelowna to try getting some evening photos. This is Nancy Greene Lake on the way to Castlegar. This is at the beach only a few steps away from the main parking lot. Used the Sigma

August 30, 2019 – Skagit River Trail

This is a trail I had originally planned on checking out in 2018 but Skagit Valley Provincial Park was apparently mostly closed due to fires. This trail starts at the Sumallo Grove parking area in Manning Park off Highway 3. I believe once you cross
