“Sometimes the place you are used to is not the place you belong”
One goal accomplished - visit Hatley Castle. New goal added - re-visit Hatley Castle in the summer when the gardens are in full bloom. And I will have a filter for my camera lens so that if the sun is out in full force I can still get the shot I really want of the other side of the castle. Gear fail this time round. Truly a beautiful castle! #royalroads #hatleycastle
Snow in February!#snowing #snowinfebruary #uncommon . It doesn't really bother me I am Nova Scotian. It takes a lot more snow than this for me to be concerned but the drivers here are bad even on a nice clear sunny day.#bcisbeautiful #crazydrivers #novascotian #snowdontphaseme
“Don’t believe anything anyone says unless you experience it yourself.” ~Ron Valle . I kayaked on the Salish Sea off the coast of Vancouver Island as wet snow came down. It felt enlivening to feel the tiny stings from the flakes on my face. The flakes were wet, and some stuck to my eye lashes. Seals and sea lions would approach my kayak with curiosity, their heads surfacing and their dark glossy eyes focused on me. I saw several blue herons standing motionless at water’s edge. A few loons responded to my ululations. Four tundra swans floated in a river’s mouth, camouflaged by the white snow that fell heavily. The sea had a gentle south easterly swell and glistened silvery under a sombre grey sky. Mainland coastal BC was obscured by the low clouds and dense snowfall. Even paddling in the wet snow brings me joy. Any opportunity for a paddle is a gift! Experience is a great teacher and irrefutable. . #kayakwendy #spreadlove #salishsea #snow #explore #adventure #seakayaking #kayaking #paddlingmixtape #paddlecanada #keepitwild #bcisbeautiful #beautifulbc #explorebc #ilovebc #britishcolumbia #vanisle #amazingvanisle #sharevi #vancouverislandguide #ilovekayaking #explorebeyondtheusual #canada #explorecanada #liveyourdreams #inspirationalquotes #explorevancouverisland #explorecreateshare #outdoorwomen #exploretocreate
.. Im starting to believe to not give so much of myself to people who will not be doing the same for me ..
Working hard on a surprisingly cold snowy day
The colour of stars can range between red,white & blue. Red is the coldest at less then 3,500 Kelvin,the Sun and other yellowish white stars average around 6,000 Kelvin, and the hottest which are blue reach temperatures above 12,000 Kelvin. . . .

I was chasing the light tonight! I got out to this farm field in the Meadows just before the sunset. I also learned how indecisive I can be when looking for a spot to shoot sometimes.🤔 This area is about a 20 minute drive from my place and I passed a few suitable spots but ended up here in the corner of this field. 😂 . . . #sunsetchaser #sunset #sunsetlovers #indecisive #ticktock #losinglight #farmers #field #winter #clouds #snow #mountains #trees #pembylife #604explore #explorebc #bcisbeautiful #ilovebc #hellobc #naturelovers #naturephoto #getoutside #justgoshoot #pnw #dreamworldimages #artofvisuals #agameoftones #ootandaboot #beautiful #canada
The first picture was taken two years ago, on this date, at Mission Creek Golf Course. The second one was taken three years ago at Two Eagles Golf Course. The last picture was taken yesterday on Maple Street, behind our office at a normally warmer spot than the first two, but about 20C (36F) degrees cooler. Definitely not a normal winter! #wherethehellisspring #February21 #wtfisthis ??? #kelownaweather #explorekelowna #exploreokanagan #kelownaviews #kelownanow #explorebc #explorecanada #beautifulbc #bcisbeautiful #openexposure #canadasworld
Another shot of the snow, tomorrows commute is probably going to be a gong show. We got 1cm of snow with warm temps and freezing over night. Mix these regular winter conditions with Vancouver drivers and chaos will likely ensure. • • • • • • #commuterlife #commute #morningdrive #morning #winter #movedheretoavoidwinter #wastingsunlight #dailyview #dailydrive #hellobc #travelbc #bcisbeautiful #explorecanada #explore #pnwonderland #pnw #yvr #seatosky #route99 #howesound #createalifeyoulove #soloadventures #sololife #adventuremore #exploremore #livemore
Always good times out exploring
Living in the southern part of Vancouver island in the PNW keeps us free of snow most winters. However, when we do get a spattering of snow it's either met with great joy or strong opposition. Here are some scenes from my afternoon hike with Coco. BTW...She LOVES 💓 the snow!!! . ##forestscenes #forestlife #trailblazer #womenthsthike #hiker #outdoors #thegreatoutdoors #getoutside #trails #bctrails #walkwithme #seewhatisee #scenic #intothewoods #hike #pnw #bc #vancouverisland #northsaanich #bcisbeautiful #beautifulbc #naturewalk #forestbathing #healthy #sshikes #therapy #coco #cavalierkingcharlesspaniel #lovethesnow #snow

Three Sisters Winter - I've finally completed my year long project of capturing the Three Sisters Through the Seasons. I thought the winter image would be the most difficult to capture, but I was lucky to have some great light the first morning I went out to attempt it. Stay tuned for a blog post coming shortly showing the whole project! #explorecanada #imagesofcanada #canada #landscapesofcanada #justcanadathings_ #instacanada #canadiancreatives #canadianrockies #britishcolumbia  #beautifulbc #hellobc   #travelbc  #bcisbeautiful  #ilovebc #kootenayviews #kootrocks #eastkootenays #fernie #ferniestoke #ig_landscape  #beautyofnature  #majestic_earth #thebestdestination #stayandwander #greatnorthcollective #modernoutdoors #mountainlovers   #worldclasslandscapephotographers #sonyalpha #marklockiphotography
Anyone else super pumped about the snow? ⛄️ Really hoping that we get a ton of it! Taken from @GrouseMountain back in 2016.

"What inspired me to paint Spring Harvest is that when I was very young my mom, I remember going out with her in the forest and picking morels and throughout the years we’ve been fortunate to still pick morels where I come from, and at the same times in around the spring harvest is when fiddleheads grow. We’re taught to provide tobacco as offering to mother earth as offering when we harvest from her and this painting depicts women harvesting fiddleheads and morels and they’re providing an offering." - Nikki Manitowabi . . . . . . . . . . . #Woodlandart #IndigenousArt #NativeArt #NativeCulture #IndigenousCulture #Art #Canadian #Canada150 #oldways #legends #myths #artgallery #artforsale #bcisbeautiful #officedecor #homedecor #anishinaabe #ojibwe #modernart #artcollector #nativecanadianarts #womenartists #femaleartist #loveforart #firstnations #firstnationsart
