Exploring the Mount Baker Wilderness

 In the fall of 2018 I made several return trips to the Mount Baker wilderness, exploring the Chain Lakes, Lake Anne, and Ptarmigan Ridge.

 While pre-scouting the Chain Lakes I saw a spot that looked promising for a reflection shot of Mount Baker. From the parkinglot the trail dips down to Upper Bagley Lake before climbing up to a pass filled with fall colours.

Mount McGuire, An Evening in the Bowl

Posted by Dean Hebert on February 18, 2018 at 3:50 PM Comments comments (360)

 A couple of years ago I "discovered" the amazing wildflower display in the bowl below Mount McGuire and I knew I had to get back and photograph this area again. 

 With no intention of summiting, I headed to the trail head in the late afternoon. The lower part of the road  is still ok but it's getting overgrown making for a lot of single lane driving. Then the road deteriorates rapidly and I switched to 4 wheel drive to save my tires.

 There was no one at ...

My 12 Best Photos of 2013

Posted by Dean Hebert on January 17, 2014 at 1:25 AM Comments comments (209)

 2013 was full of camping trips, starting Easter weekend at Doctor's Bay, on Harrison Lake, and ending at Blowdown Lake, near Lillooet, at the end of September. It seems to me that I was placing less emphasis on photography and more on experiencing nature. Not really a bad thing, just a slight change in focus. My goal for this coming year is to see more sunrises and sunsets, and hopefully capture some breath-taking scenery.

2011: A Year in Review ( The Ansel Adams Dozen )

Posted by Dean Hebert on May 6, 2012 at 11:35 AM Comments comments (242)

 To know where you're going you must know where you've been.

 After reading a couple of articles about reviewing your work that included the Ansel Adams quote  "Twelve significant photos in any one year is a good crop", I decided that I would pick my twelve favourite photos whether they were "significant" or not.

 Sometimes I go looking for a specific shot and other times I'm just exploring. During a morning shoot in early January, I found myse...

Shooting into the Sun

Posted by Dean Hebert on March 1, 2011 at 8:55 PM Comments comments (125)

 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...
