Fall Road Trip: Day 2

We had made to Rossland the previous afternnoon and spent the night at the Mountain Shadow hostel. I spent the morning hiking around Red mountain, looking around the ski resort and just enjoying the amazing autumn weather.

Although it was nice and sunny it did not mean it was nice and warm.

After lunch me and my friend Kyle walked up Red mountain, at the top of the T-bar we found an abandonded mine building which was very interesting to looke around.

Fall Road Trip: Day 1

Last weekend I went on a road trip with a good friend of mine up to Red mountain which is 5 minutes away from Rossland.

Day one

Got a very early start and caught the first ferry to Vancouver.

I was able to catch the sunset from the deck of the ferry.

Some from the road and a few stops along the way, there was some very nice fall colours.

The Crossing

A spur of the moment photo shoot from last weekend at UVic. I used a SB600 to light the subject which was out left.

Run for the cure

Well I seem to have fallen behind on updates… These pictures are from the CIBC run for the cure 2 weeks ago. The run is to rasise money for breast cancer and was held at UVic. There was a really good turn out despite the typical rain filled october day.

Sheringham Point Lighthouse

Last weekend I spent the weekend out at French beach and while I was out there I decided to find the Sheringham point lighthouse which is near the tiny town of Shirley. The location of the lighthouse is amazing, one of the most beatiful places I have seen. Unfortunitly it apears that lots have been put in an are waiting for houses to be built, I am not sure if it will be as easy to get to the lighthouse as it is now. Now for some pictures!

Surrounding the lighthouse was some huge kelp beds, while I was there I saw sea lions and lots of shore birds.
