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. [...]

Out for a little drive

August 29th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017, Travel|

August 29, 2017 - This past Sunday we decided that we’d neglected the backroads for too long. Since we got the motorcycles we've not played out on the Forest Service roads that we used to ply back when we still had the old truck. When I was up at Gates Creek a couple of weeks [...]

Back in Bella Coola

August 1st, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

August 1, 2017 - I usually come up to Bella Coola in September, for a couple of days of Chinook collection on the Atnarko. It’s usually a couple of amazing days of drift boats, tangle nets, big fish, and lots of grizzly bears. But I thought I’d switch it up this year since I have [...]

Visit to the Provincial Capital

July 16th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

July 16, 2017 - I’m in Victoria for a few days for a conference. Not a conference I’ve attended before, and although it’s definitely related to what I do, it’s unrelated to anything I’ve ever formally studied, but I thought it pertinent as a learning experience. And that means not a lot of people I [...]

Canada Day Celebration

July 2nd, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

Canada had a birthday this past weekend. It’s been 150 years since confederation formed this vast land under the label of a single country. As far as countries go, ours is young, or not, depending on how you view it. Fromt eh perspective of the First Nations, we are interlopers and this land is much [...]

Happy 150th Canada Day

July 1st, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

July 1, 2017 - Happy 150th Birthday Canada, I am so grateful to call you home. Today, for Canada Day, for Canada's 150th birthday, we decided to celebrate by trying something new. Paddleboarding….because it is hot and I'd rather fall into the cold ocean on a hot day than a cold one. And I was [...]

This corner of the world

May 22nd, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

May 22, 2017 - This weekend was awesome. It started Saturday with a run to the insurance agent to “finally” insure the motorcycles, and that was followed by a not-too-short and not-too-long ride to remind myself that this machine is a very, very different animal from the little scooter that runs me around town. It was nice [...]

Day 213 – Pride

July 31st, 2016|Photo a Day - The Rest of 2016?|

July 31, 2016 - That's the leader of my country, the second Trudeau to hold the position, and the first sitting Prime Minster to march in Vancouver's Pride Parade and he clearly has absolutely no reservations about doing so. How cool is he!?! I am proud to be Canadian, and I am proud to call [...]
