Where else would we go on a long weekend car-camping adventure? This area has become a real favourite for me with so much to see and so many places to explore.

 Serea and I invited Paul and our neighbours, Chris and Celyne, to join us, so, on the Canada Day long weekend, we drove up the Downton Creek FSR, missing the turn off and having to retrace our steps back to the right spur. We set up camp just past the trail head.

 Have you ever composed a shot with the sun either in or just outside the frame? Then you know about lens flare, those ghosts shooting across the picture, caused by the light reflecting off internal components. An easy way to fix this is just by not shooting into the sun or other bright objects, but if that's not possible then the use of a lens shade or a hat to block the sun from the front lens element can help. Sometimes, hiding the sun behind an element in the picture removes the glar...
