Kelowna Summer Heat

It’s been hot days in Kelowna lately. I’m not complaining though because at least when it’s nice and sunny outside it kind of draws you out, at least it does for me. When it’s super nice I want to be out there doing stuff. However, once the heat starts hitting that 30C/90F mark your options …

The Lights at Night

I shot a photo from this exact spot a couple weeks ago (see that picture here). At the time I didn’t have any longer lenses with me and I thought I’d like to get a shot zoomed in a little closer to this building. All the lights on he building look so nice at night …

Lots of Water

Well there doesn’t seem to be any shortage or whatever around here. I honestly don’t know what the story is with this water coming up out of the ground at the park by my house. I thought it was an odd scene and worth a picture. As for the other picture, well I just shot …

Good Night Kelowna

This is a view of Ellis Street downtown in Kelowna. I had the idea for this picture when I was driving down this street one day. When I was thinking about this photo I pictured a lot more apartment lights on. I guess most people were already asleep or they were out? Either way the …

Test Shot

This was just a test shot I took the other night. I’m thinking I will use this location for a portrait shoot. I think it’d be cool to have someone leaning on that railing on the right side the frame. With a person there I’d change up the composition a little, but it would be …

Waiting

I wanted to take a picture like this, but I didn’t have the location. I knew I wanted some lights in the background and I needed some kind of street light to hit me in the front. I drove and walked around Kelowna for about 2 hours before I found this spot. I tried a …

All The Lights

I had drove by this place a few times and I knew right away that I was going to go back one night and shoot a photo. I love all the lights on the sign and the strings of lights above the deck. These type of lights always look good in long exposures. The place …

Big Hike Day

Last week we had some family in town so we decided to take a what I though was going to be a little hike. Turns out this was in fact a big hike! Of course it was so sunny and hot going up, but by the time we got to the top it was pretty …

The Great War Monument

I shot this one last night beside a fire hall downtown in Kelowna. I suppose it’s a war monument dedicated to some firefighters who went off to war. I don’t know anymore than that as I didn’t see any plaques around or anything with more info. Maybe I’ll meet some old guy there one day …

Just made the cut

I wasn’t planning on sharing this picture. I didn’t think it was good enough to be perfectly honest with you. However when I was looking at it trying to decide if I should even toss it on Twitter or not my wife Michelle walked by and told me she like it. I figure if she …

Okanagan Centre

Over the weekend my family and I took a little drive out to Lake Country, a town about 20 minutes north of Kelowna. We found our selves in the neighbourhood of Okangan Centre were we were taking our dog for a little walk. I ended up wondering off on my own for a bit as …

How you doin?

We took the dog out for a walk by a river last night and I noticed this horse through these bushes in his or her little stable. There seamed to be a clear path to the fence so I though I’d walk over and say hi. I took a couple pictures as I do. The …

Boca De Tomatlan & Yelapa

A picture from Boca De Tomatlan, Mexico came up on my Instagram stories “memories” yesterday. Once that memory was in my head I had to go and look at some of the pictures I took there last year. I love looking back at these pictures because those trips down there are always so fun. My …
