Reflections

I'm very fond of these ducks (Hooded Mergansers) but for me the best part of this photo is the reflections on the water. This is from January 4 years ago.

Sasquatch Hunting

We headed out of town and into the Sooke Hills to take a hike along the old Sooke Flowline, a winding 44 km aqueduct that used to carry water from the Sooke reservoir to Victoria but we didn't spot any of the elusive Sasquatches unfortunately. - Fern

Savannah Sparrow

I'm still enjoying digging around in the archives - this one is from January seven years ago when I first started to notice the many different kinds of birds this city is blessed with.

Mckenzie Creek

Here's another photo from the archives - this one's from January 2011. It's Mckenzie Creek in Thetis Lake Park. When I took this photo I was very pleased with myself because I finally was able to get all the variables right in order to capture that silky water effect. I confess that I still like this photo and hope you do too.

Clover Point

Here's the view from Clover Point. It looks wild and lonely but it's right in the city of Victoria only a few minutes away from Beacon Hill Park. Though the water has that lovely aquamarine tint to it that makes it look warm, it was very cold. The Pacific here is always very cold - it's probably the main reason our ocean beaches are never crowded even in mid-summer.
