Radium Hot Springs Rendez-Vous   Leave a comment

 

My dad and I went for a weekend to Radium Hot Springs last week and I finally felt inspired enough to post a few more pictures. Here are a few from the trip.

Quilchena Fields

A perfectly (fenced) property line flows up the side of a hill giving this very cool colour difference.

 

Rogers Pass

We're headed for the snow sheds and I look up. Waaaay up! Black and White à la Ansel Adams.

 

Homestead

It would be great if my photography would make me a few dollars. Otherwise this might be my new home. 🙂

 

Rocky Mountain Big Horned Sheep Ram

I looked to the left and there were 15 Rocky Mountain Big Horned Sheep males... just hanging around.

 

Sinclair Canyon, Kootenay National Park

Right at the Radium Hot Springs, at the mid-point of the most impressive canyon you'll ever drive through.... this amazing iron-stained limestone cliff.

 

Verdent Creek

Oh, the green hue in the water!

 

Kootenay Valley Coyote

We came across this guy snooping alongside the road. It did not seem to me that it was acting like a healthy coyote. The window 'up' switch was right at our fingertips!

 

Pulpit Peak from Bow Valley Parkway, North of Eldon

I've wanted this shot for 15 years. I finally had the right lens, the right camera and the right moment! YAY!

Bubbles & Other Things – at last!   Leave a comment

This post is a long time coming. I worked for a couple of hours on the bubbles shot and when I went to save it, Photoshop crashed. Discouraged, I put off processing the photo again until I had some real time and inclination once again.


Bentall Bubbles

Bentall Bubbles is a shot taken in the afternoon with the sun beaming down on the office towers across the street reflecting off the bubbles floating in a waterfall element on Burrard Street in downtown Vancouver.

Barrow's Goldeneye Duck

Take Off!

In mid April, my Dad and I went for a short road trip to the Northwest Kootenays. There are lots of hot springs to visit and we took full advantage of the soothing waters. I managed to get a few good shots in as well.

Take-Off is one in a series of shots of a Barrow’s Goldeneye Duck taking off from a beaver pond at the summit of the pass between New Denver and Kaslo.

Silver Creek Greens

Silver Creek Greens is one in a series that was taken from just up the road from my Dad’s house looking right across downtown Salmon Arm and onto the expanse of rich and fertile farmland that lays between Mount Ida to the left and the Fly Hills to the right. Snow was falling at higher altitudes making the sunlight on the verdant fields that much more brilliant.

It’s a view I have seen only a few times- even though I lived in Salmon Arm for seventeen years.

Enjoy!
