Ski Northern BC this Winter
For a dusting of powder and charm.
“Taking in the view from the red and blue chairs on the rocks of McNeill Bay in Victoria. It’s a classic shot, but I wanted to catch it from a different angle to showcase the size of the Olympic Mountains.”
“A small hike from the Sooke Potholes parking lot and you’ll arrive at Mary Vine Falls. Always best to view in the spring, when the snow melt is raging down from the hills.”
“Stopping at the Sheringham Point Lighthouse in Port Renfrew. You can often spot whales and otters here.”
“Journeying through the fog in Juan De Fuca Provincial Park, but took my time in the forest. I captured some of my favourite shots on misty hikes here, including this one.”
“Breaking for shelter from the storm in a cave at Mystic Beach in Sooke. This is a great spot for a fire, but only if the tide is right (and there are no fire bans, of course!)”
“Exploring the back roads in Port Renfrew, we paid a visit to Big Lonely Doug. It’s so big. I asked my wife to stand at the base of the trunk for scale. She’s the blue dot.”
“Ringing in the New Year, in our home away from home, with nothing but the stars keeping us company. Just the way we like it.”
“Originally from PEI and now living in Victoria, I like to use photography as a reason to explore this beautiful Island and the surrounding areas. This week, I’ll be sharing some of the places to stop along the way from Victoria to Port Renfrew—one of my favourite drives on the Island.”
