As a long-time resident of the Fraser Valley, it is almost embarrassing to admit that I had never ventured onto Bowen Island. This wonderful retreat island is only a twenty-minute ferry ride from West Vancouver. Above all, it is home to countless trails. The trails all thread their way through the coastal forests to lakes, streams, and to seaside views of Howe Sound and Georgia Strait. Georgia Straight is certainly a playground for boaters of all kinds. This craft photographed from the shores of Bowen Island is enjoying a golden afternoon sail.
One particular trail took my wife and I to a point of land at Cape Roger Curtis Lighthouse. The lighthouse itself is not one of the storybook sort that you will find in a calendar, but the view beyond it is quite stunning. On this afternoon, the clouds over the Strait and Gabriola Island were magnificent. Meanwhile, in the distance, these clouds acted as a dramatic backdrop for a lone vessel making its way north on the relatively calm waters.
I would normally have had my tripod and lens filters with me. However, since this was a getaway weekend with my wife, I was only packing my camera. My 70-200mm lens allowed me to capture the moody contrast between the filtered sunlight and oncoming clouds along with the sailboat gliding into the sunlight.
The Fraser Valley has been my home for more than thirty years. The beauty of this region certainly captured me right from my youth, and exploring the outdoors was the common thread in all my interests. The lakes, rivers, and mountains that define the geography of this area continue to draw me into the backcountry and inspire my photographic pursuits. Even the urban centers of the southern coast of British Columbia are kissed by their intersection with their natural surroundings.
Ironically, photography became an integral part of my life when I left this province to work overseas. The zeal to capture the experience of living in a vibrant foreign city led me to delve into the relatively new realm of digital photography. The ability to capture what I was seeing in a way that expressed how it was making me feel became my artistic passion.
Over the last ten years I have worked to hone my craft both with the camera and the computer. In the field, this is all about finding locations that move me; locations that tell a story. In the post processing, it is all about highlighting the mood and lighting to evoke a response from the viewer. It is my hope that through my work people will be able to share in the sense of wonder I feel in the world around us.
