Maple Ridge, British Columbia, Canada
I am happiest when I am out with my camera. Always looking for the bright side. Usually I find it! Please contact me via comment if you wish to use any of my photography. Thanks for stopping by.

Flag Day

Its flag day. This Canadian flag is in Sutcliff Park, near Granville Island in Vancouver.
 From my archives, taken last fall.

Blue Heron

A Great Blue Heron wading in the cranberry bog. We saw him while walking around the Blue Heron Loop, a section of dyke which encircles a blue berry farm and skirted by cranberry bags. We often see blue herons here in Maple Ridge. I love his chest feathers. Not the clearest photo, I don't have a decent telephoto lens. Taken just before the sun went down. Seeing him was the bright light in an otherwise dull evening.

A little Snow on Top!

Taken a few weeks ago, the Golden Ears with the first dusting.
 Slightly more snow on there now!

It's eagle time. The salmon have spawned and they are easy pickings for hungry eagles. Every year we get dozens and dozens of eagles stop to enjoy the feast.

On the Lake

On Alouette Lake in a canoe. The water was very choppy. This lake is man made. It is a dammed up valley, which was flooded many moons ago after the valley was forested. Thankfully, in 1927, this area was made a Provincial Park and no further logging has been permitted since then.

Downtown Vancouver

We ventured from our suburban oasis into the big city last night. The lights of Vancouver reflected in Coal Harbour, all by the light of a silvery moon.

Summer bounty!

The makings of a tasty treat. Apple, rhubarb and strawberry crisp. Local berries are delicious this year..sooo sweet. We only have a few in our garden, so had to buy these. But the rhubarb is home grown. Our blue berries are not terribly abundant this year, and are still green. Our non existant summer has played havoc on local produce.

Hanging Around Downtown

The hanging baskets in the center of town are lush and fresh. The lack of hot weather agrees with small container plantings, which can tend to dry out quickly in the heat.

Taken on 224th street looking east, into Memorial Peace Park.
