Is the Forest Dreaming?

October 8th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

When a forest goes dormant in the fall/winter...does it dream about spring? I've wondered this before, and I will presumably wonder it again in the future. Probably next fall when it begins to go dormant again. I usually head out to my outer coast hatcheries once a year, generally in the fall during broodstock season. [...]

Locked up and in Love

October 4th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

Nothing much to say today….tired after a long day around fish and tired thinking about a long drive ahead tomorrow to a remote site on the outer coast of the Island. Today did not go as planned, in fact it went anything but as planned. The fish weren't exactly cooperative and the one fish we [...]

World Animal Day

October 3rd, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

October 3rd, 2017 - Tomorrow is World Animal Day. This is not a day I’ve officially recognized, but it’s the theme for a challenge in the FLickr group I’m in at the moment, so here you go. According to Wikipedia, World Animal Day is an international day of action for animal rights and welfare celebrated [...]

The

October 2nd, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017, Monochromatic|

October 2, 2017 - We use words every day and too frequently we spend very little time thinking about what those words are, what they mean, and what impact they may have once we release them. But this isn't a heavy discussion about language, it's just a short little thought about one word. "The" I [...]

A Walk on LoLo

October 1st, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

October 1, 2017 - October? Already? How’d that happen so fast! The rain over the past two days disappeared and the sun made a brilliant appearance, and that made it a perfect day to wander Lower Lonsdale, or “LoLo” as it’s been dubbed relatively recently. Along both sides of the street, for a couple of [...]

Water Baby

September 29th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

September 29, 2017 - When I was younger it was hard to keep me out of the water. One of our cabin neighbours out at the lake used to call me “Frog” because I was pretty much always in the lake. I loved swimming and made my way up through the various swimming badges until [...]

A Day on the Burman

September 21st, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017, Travel|

September 21, 2017 - I usually travel to the Conuma River Hatchery in October for the chum run. I usually do a lot of travel in October, so much so that I usually see little of my own bed and much of the inside of hotels or the rooms of residence buildings at sites far [...]

A Frog’s Perspective

September 17th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

September 17, 2017 - Yesterday was a gorgeous day. It was a bit brisk in the morning but fabulously warm by early afternoon, so we grabbed the boards, tossed them on top of the truck, and headed for Sasamat Lake, a spot that we'd never visited even though it's so close. A wrong turn landed [...]

Capilano Canyon

September 10th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

A little rain yesterday seemed to freshen the world up and bring out the colour in everything again, it’s been a long time since some water fell from the sky. I know I’ll be moaning about it in a few months when it won’t stop, but right now it's a welcome change. After a visit [...]
