A few weeks ago I spent 4 days hiking in the stunning mountains located in Strathcona Provincial park. We first hiked in to Baby Bedwell lake to setup base camp. From here we would explore some of the surrounding areas including Mt. Tom Taylor. While the weather was not ideal we made the most of it and on the plus side it never rained!
The hike up to Baby Bedwell while steep was a very good trail which was easy to follow and provided some nice views of some streams.
Our first views of Baby Bedwell lake where far from the stunning vistas of the surrounding mountains that people had been raving about…
It was far from summer at camp.
The following morning we started out on our attempt to summit Mt. Tom Taylor. The weather was much the same with limited visibility and we had some difficulty finding the trail but eventually we got going. While it was nearly August we still where dealing with winter conditions.
Once we got closer to the summit the clouds did break a few times to tease us with the views we missed on the way up.
The following day we had a bit of a break in the weather and decided to enjoy some of the views we missed the day before and explored Bedwell lake area.
Overall it was an amazing trip and I can not wait to get back into the mountains.

After what seems like a very wet spring “summer” is officially here. While it has warmed up it seems that things are still pretty wet. The solstice this week was a beautifully calm (and dry!) night and was a perfect opportunity to enjoy a nice fire down at the beach.

April is here! While we seem to be getting a late blast of winter I can only hope we start to see more sunny days!

This past weekend I made my way over to Vancouver to check out the Snowy Owls that have been spending the winter in the area. It has always been a dream of mine to see snowy owls, but had been putting it off due to the large crowds that had been gathering but finally made the decision to brave them. Seeing the owls was amazing but the crowds where worse than I could have imagined. It was depressing to see people making their way past the signs that clearly said to not approach the owls in order to “get the shot”. Beside this I was glad to see the birds even if I didn’t get the photo I was hoping to get.

With the start of a new year it gives you a chance to look back on the year that just passed by. 2011 was a busy year for me and while I did get to take some amazing trips I didn’t get the chance to dedicate as much time to my photography as I had hopped. I am hopeful that in 2012 I will be able to have some more great opportunities like I did in 2011. Here are a few of my favourite shots from the past year.
