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.

Off to the Queen Charlotte Islands for a photography adventure.

Sure looking forward to traveling with a group of photographers to the Queen Charlotte Islands, which is the most Westerly point in Northern British Columbia, the area is also about 125 km off the coast in the Pacific Ocean. We will have the opportunity to photograph ancient rain forests, very old historic villages, secluded inlets and beaches that are sure to offer great sunsets. We should also have chances for mountain photographs as they rise above the waters and forests. We do hope to offer a few blog posts as we move along on our trip but in the meantime we include three images shown below of what we might look forward to.

 

Great landscapes to see and photograph.

A Friday evening at the Tillsonburg Airport

On a Friday evening a short while ago some friends and I went to Tillsonburg to have a preview of an event that was taking place on Saturday and Sunday. We were treated to a fantastic display while watching the Harvard’s and their skilled pilots perform during their practice session prior to Saturdays event. What a pleasure to watch and to shoot some photographs of these amazing pilots and their Harvards. We enclose a few images from that evening and we hope that you also enjoy them.
