Changing Seasons

It's amazing how quickly the view can change. Sometimes in hours, sometimes in meters. An example was last weekend's touchdown in the Mount Baker area. The first two images were taken at Silver Lake, a popular summer destination. The third photo shows a Glen road about eighteen hours later. The snow forced me to abandon the afternoon shoot by the lake, but it was worth it for next morning's glory.

The Glen, Again

Two more views of the beauteous Nooksack river, plus a dazzling fountain that twinkled and glowed and called out my name in the darkness.

Stewart Farmhouse

OK, this is not really the farmhouse; it's the water that surrounds the property. One of these days I might stop ogling the ocean long enough to capture the delightful details of the historic structure. Meanwhile, those sunsets surely do beckon.

Working With Spidey

I wish I had a way to reward this spider. She dangled patiently outside my greenhouse for two whole days, enduring water spray and flashing lights with no complaint at all. Nature is amazing - at first I thought this was a seven legged spider, but now I realize there's a new leg growing on her left hand side. WOW.

Minter Gardens, Chilliwack BC

Another beautiful place that I haven't visited in decades. Rain cut the outdoor opportunities short, but there was plenty to see in the plant nursery. Minter cries out for a return visit or three, as I barely scratched its surface. You may notice a recurrent 'water' theme in recent posts - yep, this is my obsession these days, and it's far from over.

A whirlwind visit to the Mission district of Kelowna revealed these images - sadly there was no time to gather more. What a lovely area, with so many reasons to return.

The Mighty Nooksack

More images from the majestic Nooksack River in Washington State. Its timeless allure is hard to explain, but it brings me back over and over.

Osprey Lake Revisited

My annual holiday to Osprey Lake, near Princeton, BC, has become something of a pilgrimage. This year the wind played games in the water, so I was denied many of the lake's exquisite reflections. Instead, I explored the nearby Trans Canada/Kettle Valley Trail, and discovered other aspects of the area's beauty.

A Walk in the Park

Today I visited the pond at Crescent Park, a perfect gem alive with Nature on a sunny Thursday. I saw serene reflections, sleepy turtles and rainbow dragonflies. The breeze was a symphony of bird calls, splashing fish and booming bullfrogs. Here are a few images from the day:

Moving Right Along

Last month the City of Surrey hosted the Cloverdale Rodeo. I had a display in the Art Zone, and did a bit of touring during the four day fair. This included the midway, plus a small adventure into the far reaches of Whalley, searching for scrap yards and razor wire.

High Water

We celebrated the start of camping season with a trip to Cultus Lake. Hard to believe we've been here thirty years without a visit to the Provincial Park. The lake was full of spring rain, and the water was high both on shore and off.

The Desert in Winter

Last February I visited the Osoyoos area, staying a short distance up the road on a working cattle ranch. The vistas changed with every mile, from bleak desert orchards to snowy grasslands awaiting spring thaw. All were so captivating it was hard to know where to look.

Once Upon a Time

Not long ago, I painted and drew as if possessed. My favorite subjects were people, as you can see. This is quite different from what I do now, where my favorite subject is whatever catches the eye. The roads to self expression are many and varied indeed.

Climbing Among Flowers

A recent outing revealed a variety of images - stairs on a Fort Langley dock, stairs in a derelict old house (I was probably trespassing:), and a rhododendron explosion.
