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.
The unusually placid waters of Harrison Lake allowed me to get a good reflection of Mount Breakenridge.
My first decent star-trail photo was a 17 minute exposure taken during our camping trip to Doctors Bay.
I'd never seen rhododendrons in the wild, so we planned a trip to E.C.Manning Park to coincide with the annual bloom.
I bought a new camera, Canon's 6D, which has amazing low light sensitivity! This was shot at ISO 6400, 1/8 second, coming down from an after-work hike to the peak of Cheam Mountain.
Three Brothers Mountain, in E.C.Manning Park. We camped overnight at Buckhorn campsite and tackled this hike the next day.
On a return hike to McGuire ridge I stopped on the mosquito infested slopes to capture the light as it hit the Border Peaks.
From the same trip as the last photo, this was the reason I had returned to this location. The dead tree and Mount Baker provided bookends for Mount McGuire.
During my first trip to Garibaldi Park, the winds were intense and the views obscured by clouds. I experimented with some multi-frame shots of the blowing flowers.
Along the lakeshore of Blowdown Lake.
On the third morning at Blowdown Lake, we awoke to snow.
Intense pink skies grabbed my attention during an evening hike to Williamson Lake. This is a 7 image stitch.
