To the Beaver’s brook in black and white

I’m trying to take in as much of this area as possible in my last few days here. On a cloudy day this week I drove down to the Beavermouth Creek out along the Quesnel Hydraulic Road. (That was where I saw and shot the fox.) And, what with it being overcast, the photos just work… Continue reading To the Beaver’s brook in black and white

Throwback Thursday: The Milky Way, Zombie Cows and a lost bit of photographic gear

It’s still Thursday where I am, so I guess I get to do a Throwback Thursday! This one relates to something that happened two years ago, that impacted on me today. Back then I was going out a lot at night to shoot. This one particular evening at the end of September 2014 saw me… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: The Milky Way, Zombie Cows and a lost bit of photographic gear

A post about decaying stuff and cute ankle biters

One minute it was summer and then, the next, it wasn’t, when the weather changed on the first of the month – with more rain and a chill in the air at dawn. With that, the trees started turning those golden hues that I knew I would see if I stayed here long enough. It’s… Continue reading A post about decaying stuff and cute ankle biters

What do an insomniac, a herd of zombie cows and shooting stars have in common?

As it happens, I haven’t been sleeping much the last few weeks. I’m not complaining – I get a lot done at 2am. Amongst other things, I pray for others; and then I count Heffalumps in-between coughing fits – but, like Winnie the Pooh, that hasn’t helped me to get to sleep so far. This evening… Continue reading What do an insomniac, a herd of zombie cows and shooting stars have in common?
