Swan lake, Vancouver island. ( the old bridge) Work started in 1977 on the boardwalk and trails around Swan lake. 14,000 hours by volunteers and help from the armed forces, by 1981 it was completed.  Encompassing the nearby Christmas hill the total area of the Sanctuary is approx 169 acres.  And in 2018 this aging character floating bridge was replaced, at a cost of around $800.000. I was fortunate enough to capture the old bridge , for nostalgic reasoning. comments appreciated and welcomed. ink59.com #explorevancouverisland #sharevi #victoria_city_canada #amazingvancouverisland #victoriabuzz #pocket_canada #raw_canada #canadapic #imagesofcanada #canadawonderful #explorebc #explorecanada #bnw_addicted #pocket_bnw #raw_bnw #edits_bnw #bnw_captures #world_bnw   #bnw_planet #bnw_drama #bnw_addict #mensprost #everything_bnw #excellent_bnw   #bnwmood #canadaday #explorevictoria
Steamy forest trails with sunlight creeping in. This is where I'm blessed to live.
'Botany Burst' was taken at Botany Bay near Port Renfrew and the second comp that I was able to get during this unexpectedly intense and long lasting sunset. I think this is when the orangy red colour was at its peak. #amazingvancouverisland #wonderfulvancouverisland #sharevi #vanisle #tourismvi #vancouverisland #opcmag #tourismvancouverisland #vancouverislandtourism #portrenfrew #botanicalbeach #botanicalbeachprovincialpark #vancouverislandlife #victoriabuzz
Travel independently. At least a few times in your life. Don’t get me wrong travelling with a buddy or a partner can be one of the most fulfilling and relationship building things to do in life. It’s just, when you travel alone you have to become content with yourself. If you are thinking about travelling somewhere and you are hesitant to go it alone but know you want to then set some small term goals that allow you to build your confidence. . . . If you don’t like your company enough, start a self love practice. If you are scared about being in danger, start a martial arts class and get beaten around a little. If it’s money that scares you, get more information, how much do you need to get by, set up some weekly targets and stick to them. If your main hesitation is because of fear, you know those unpleasant thoughts you whisper to yourself when no ones around, thoughts that maybe you are happy where you are, that travel isn’t for you. If that’s the case and fear is what is stopping you then hurry up and surrender already to the infinite possibility of disaster. . . . The world is safer than it has ever been & who knows how long we will have mother nature’s green and blue hues to revel in. Shits turning grey out there & it’s about time you start demanding a better version of yourself. . . . #theglobewanderer #roamtheplanet #fantastic_earth #awesome_earthpix  #earthfocus #colors_of_day #visualambassadors #ig_landscape  #tofino #visual_heaven #adventurethatislife #hellobc #beautifulbritishcolumbia #pnwbc #canadaviews #discoverbc #insidecanada #tourismtofino #adventurebc #getoutstayout #amazingvancouverisland #bcisbeautiful #travelupcanada #oh_canada_ #insidecanada #wonderfulvancouverisland #nikonambassador #natgeoyourshot #ig_alls #pmwintergridchallenge
wanderlust isn’t about running away from it all. it’s about experiencing the outside to discover the inside 🗺
Blood Wolf Moon Rising Here is my take on the eclipse from the other night. I decided to head to Rathtrevor Beach to photograph the lunar eclipse a couple of nights ago. Fortunately the tide was out so I was able to capture a time lapse shot with some reflections in the tide pools. This shot was created over the span of 3 hours. About an hour of scouting the beach in the dark for a good lineup of tide pools and another two taking pictures of the moon at 10 minute intervals. Ever since the lunar eclipse last year I’ve wanted to create something similar but showing more phases, and thankfully this year the weather cooperates! It’s night like these where you realize how small and insignificant we are, yet lucky enough to live in a time and place in the universe where sights like this are somewhat common. Info about the shot: The landscape shot was taken before any of the moon shots. I took it just to the right of where the moon was rising so I could get a clear sky to place the moons on, which is why you see the moon over Orion near the top of its arc (which isn’t normal). All moon shots were taken individually as well with a shot of each moon in the reflection of the tide pool which I added later in post. If you have any questions about the process feel free to ask! #gameoftones #ohcanada #tourcanada #tourismbc #enjoycanada #britishcolumbiacanada #imagesofcanada #thankyoucanada #ohcanada #sharevi #sharethecoast #explorecanada #beautifulbritishcolumbia #travelbc #ilovebc #canadagram #canadagems #tofino #amazingvancouverisland #paradisecanada #ig_shotz #cascadiaexplored #greatnorthcollective #jaw_dropping_shots #earthpics #longexpoelite #discoverearth #bcmagazine #longexposure_shots #exploremagazine
A quick, but memorable, lunch break on the West Coast Trail at @nitinaht_narrows . . 📸: @glasshorizonphoto . . #SeetheBCweSee #WestCoastTrail #AmazingVancouverIsland #Backpacking
I love the scenery on the short 30 min drive from Qualicum Beach to Port Alberni. You can admire the glistening snow capped mountains, watch the morning sun light up Cameron Lake and then suddenly be in a cloud of rain and fog. West Coast Weather... Ever-changing , unpredictable, always beautiful.
Ok, time for another painting! I love winter, but living in Victoria BC I don’t really see that much snow. That makes our visits to Whistler so special, because I get to play in the snow! This is a view of Blackcomb from the Valley Trail on a mostly day ❤️. Currently on display at Brentwood Bay Village Emporium. “Just Me & The Trees”, 24x24”. . #yyjarts #supportlocalartists #aggv #buylocal #landscapeart #fineart #bcartist #vancouverislandartist #art #hellobc #canadianart #westcoastart #victoriaartist #landscapepainting #landscape #beautifulbc #vancouverisland #yyj #amazingvancouverisland #yyjartist #trees #nature #peaceful #beautiful #whistler #whistlerblackcomb #iloveskiing #ilovewhistler #whistlervalleytrail #brentwoodbayvillageempourium
Although not one of my better pics, one of my fave taken lately. This distant bird is a golden eagle.... the first that I have seen on Vancouver Island!!
The weather is looking up for the whole rest of the week! ☀️ Can’t wait for more sunshine and more hikes with this face that just kills me 😱😍
Cell pic from a wet hike with Benson on Mount Washington today. I get my runs in, then he gets his. It was pretty foggy up there today, but zero crowds. Good day for tunes and groomers! We both napped on the couch after. . . . . #mymw #explorecanada #goldenretriever #explorevancouverisland #explorebc #discovervancouverisland #totescanadian #opcmag #adventureswithbenson #amazingvancouverisland #beautifulbc #beautyofbc #paradisecanada #livelovecanada #shotoncanon #canoncanada #cvcollective #shareyourweather #sharecangeo #pawsomeretrievers #retrieveroftheday #tourismvancouverisland #tourcanada
Just another happy puppy named Brew enjoying the warm sunshine rays up in the mountains. Who else is getting outdoors in this sunshine in January? Everyone is so much happier when it’s sunny ☀️🏔🐶💙 #discovercampbellriver #dogsofinstagram #smile #sunrays #capturethis #weekendfun #mountains #january #vanisle #amazingvancouverisland
The salt marshes of Witty’s Lagoon Regional Park are pretty magic. Especially under the right conditions. This little park is like the closet to Narnia. Doesn’t look like much from the outside but when you get in there, boy does it not disappoint. Check it out, or don’t, it’s your life. . . . . .

Steelwool spin at Sandcut Beach (selfie 😊) on the night of the Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse 🌔 ✨Great collab with @maryleesampson @josh.deleenheer.photography
If you are already wasting time pouring through useless Facebook garb, here are some things that are worth getting deep in the google trenches; Morphic Resonance Sherman resonance Golden ratio Book of the dead Vibrational structure Annunaki Planet 9 Sumatran texts Lizard people illuminati . . On another note, these small seastacks look amazing high tide at sunrise. I love the way colour pops when the curvature of the earth is present.
If you could pick one person to see the rising sun with every day, who would it be? Your cat? Yeah, me too. #sorryhusband
I haven't met many friends out here so I'm very grateful when my Alberta friends come out to visit and explore with me!
Monday morning sunrise after the blood wolf moon pretty awesome if you ask me. Had some models this morning and met them. Just moved from the mainland which means big city, to my beautiful town on my island. So far these two are loving it here and enjoy daily morning walks on the beach. Such an amazing way to start the week. Happy Monday to you all 🌅🐶🌊 #sharethecoast #shareyourweather #beautifulbritishcolumbia #sunrisechaser #amazingvancouverisland #discovercampbellriver #campbellriverbc #january #winter #coast #westcoast #pnwbeaches #oceanlover #hellobc #islandlife
Everyone is posting pics of the moon and I'm all like..... Pretty surreal driving through Merville straight into the massive moon set in the most beautiful pink/purple skyline. But to come out to the waterfront at Stories and see this really capped it off. Got a good feeling about this week. . . . #sunrise #sunriseoftheday #sharevi #discovercampbellriver #amazingvancouverisland #islandlife #explorebc #bcisbeautiful #cascadiaexplored #explorevancouverisland #hellocanada #sharethecoast #storiesofthecoast #travelstoke #beautifuldestinations #imagesofcanada #paradisecanada #weatherreport
Came for the 🌅, Stayed for the 🌕 #superwolfbloodmooneclipse
We just had the best weekend outdoors 🌲🐾🏔 I think this guy will be okay to snooze most of Monday away after the kms we clocked 💤
I heard all of Victoria erupt into a spontaneous Mexican wave of howling at the moon last night
Today is statistically the most depressing day of the year, I hope everyone is doing well :) • • • I want to share one of my favourite quotes with you, it reminds me to not worry and to not fear the great unknown. I know we have some hard days when we are following our heart; but I have learned first hand that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself • • • • #nanaimo #nanaimobc #nanaimobccanada #explorenanaimo #downtownnanaimo #ycd #vancouverisland #vanisle #explorevancouverisland #wonderfulvancouverisland #vancouverislandbc #vancouverislandlife #amazingvancouverisland #vanislelife #islandlife #island #pacificnorthwest #pacificocean #blueherron #blueheron #birds #quotes #georgeaddair #bluemonday #mondaymotivation #monday #mondayquotes #mondaymood #motivation #canva
The super blood moon lunar eclipse 2019. Such a magnificent show. Eclipses are actually pretty common, I think we get around two a year. Total eclipses are the money though, and the super blood moon is an added bonus to make last nights viewing all the more pleasant. Have you ever thought it was strange that our moon doesn’t have a name? All the other planets moons are given fancy names. Anyway, first time shooting the eclipse last night and excited to hopefully get some more photos of spaces infinite mass as the months roll on.
Super blood wolf moon eclipse was fun to photograph, but it looked even better in person
Leading up to the Super Blood Wolf Moon eclipse this evening. I was sorely disappointed that the P900 didn't have sufficient light to get any shots once the Moon went red. It's getting to be time for a camera upgrade!! #nofilter #nikon #nikoncoolpixp900 #teamnikon #pnw #moon #themoon #superbloodwolfmoon #fullmoon #eclipse #luna #celestial #selenic #cascadia #backyard #campbellriver #discovercampbellriver #vancouverisland #amazingvancouverisland #explorevancouverisland #sharevi #bc #britishcolumbia #explorebc #hellobc #canada #igs_can #igsc_counterculturenerd #explorecanada #snapshot_canada
Super Blood Wolf Moon lunar eclipse. January 20, 2019. The earth passed between the sun and the moon and created the shadow and the colour.
