Coastal Mountains of BC from the east side of Quadra Island. Taken in early january 2023 when we had a cold spell. This day was -1C and I was in awe of the depth of the blue in each part of the photo, from the sky and clouds to the various land masses and the water between me and the distant mountains.

Chocolate Lilies aka Mission Bells or Checker Lily

These bloom between late April and late May on Quadra Island and are a favourite of mine.

Tree Frog in Chrysanthemum Flower

We hear these wee creatures when they are hiding in the leaves and petals of local flowers. the are very illusive and it took me 3 hours of having my camera set up and watching closely to get this photograph.

This was part of the local photo club assignment for March 2022 called "New Growth" and was fun to take.

Wild/ Western Bleeding Heart 

This was part of the local phot club assignment for March 2022 called "New Growth". I nearly stepped on it as I was taking the photo of the Big Leaf Maple Flower and was delighted when I saw it. I love bleeding hearts as they remind me of my childhood growing up on a small semi rural farm in the central Fraser Valley BC.

Big Leaf Maple Flowers and New Leaves

These are so lovely in the spring and close to our home on Quadra Is. so we get to see them develop from winter through spring until they come into full leaf.

Big Leaf Maples in Full Autumn Colour

This road leads to many surprises including the local Indigenous Community of We Wai Kai village and their Cultural Centre, the Canadian Cost Guard Station at Cape Mudge and lots of walking a cycling trails.

Red Rose and Lace

I love lace and red roses so wanted to photograph them together.
