Water, Water Everywhere


I recently explored the Duffy Lake Road, between Pemberton and Lillooet. I'd heard stories of this wonderful place, and had been there during the winter months, experiencing cold like no other. What a difference a season makes. There was water at every turn, which happens to be one of my favorite things to photograph.

Grace In The Grass

A few weeks ago I was an exhibitor at Arts At Darts (see Adirondacks post, below). This was a delightful event on a perfect evening. A highlight was photographing the exquisite dancers from XBa DanceCo, who drifted like living sculpture through the plants and trees. These photos have been 5 years in the making, and I'm so pleased to have finally taken them.

The Magic Kingdom

My artist friend, Linda Steele, of the Brass Band Art Group, recently moved to a beautiful property in Surrey. Last week I had the opportunity to explore her garden, which is a cornucopia of water, trees, and flowers. The sights, sounds, and colors were spectacular. Here are a few impressions. I intend to return; Linda, you have been warned!

The Town That Time Forgot

It's easy to miss the town of Hedley. To some it's little more than a whistle stop on Highway 3, between Princeton and Keremeos. The area has a rich mining history. A short drive into town reveals a treasure trove of charming old buildings and artifacts nestled in the magnificent Similkameen Valley. Here are some gems:

East Columbia Gorge

The area near the Washington/Oregon border is fascinating to explore. It is home to captivating nature trails, stunning waterfalls, stately historic monuments and ghost towns a-plenty. The newest landmarks are the wind farms that lend a surreal air to the magnificent landscape. What fun!

Adirondacks!

Arts at Darts is having a fundraiser as part of its festival this year. Local artists were commissioned to paint Adirondack chairs, which will be auctioned off during the event. Here is my contribution - I call it 'Kasbah', as it was inspired by a piece of beautiful Turkish fabric.

Early Fall on the Trois Rivieres


A recent excursion took me into the magnificent Fraser Canyon, home of the Fraser, Thompson, and Nicola rivers. I stayed in historic Spences Bridge, where I discovered hoodoos, an ancient bridge, and a backyard bathtub. These delights were accompanied by the rumble of trains on pioneers' pathways. Oh, and the autumn leaves were amazing too!

Summer's Last Hurrah

The summer of 2014 has been one of the best ever; week after week of sunny weather, perfect for exploring near and far. In August I took advantage of this bounty and visited Parksville, on Vancouver Island. We stayed by the ocean, near Rathtrevor Provincial Park, and spent some time on the ancient, water-worn banks of the Englishman River. Spectacular!
