A visit to Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands)

On a recent trip to Haida Gwaii in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of B.C. with a group of photographers we had the opportunity to see and photograph some of the most wonderful landscapes and ancient culture that one could imagine. My intent was to post a few photos each day we were there but it was not to be. I updated a software a day before we left and didn’t test it prior to leaving – and now you know the rest of the story, it did not work the way we hoped that it would so no blog images while I was away. We do hope to get sort of caught up over the next while and today we are posting a few images from our trip. Enjoy your short visit to what was once called the Queen Charlotte Islands.
