Sunset for One

I needed to get out for a little fresh air the other day, but with all this Coronavirus business that’s going on I didn’t want to find myself around any other people. Lucky for me this little gem of a spot is just a few blocks from my house and I knew this exact spot …

Enjoying the SOOC Sunset

I was keeping an eye on the clouds all day yesterday because I knew I was about do for a sunset picture. About an hour before sunset I knew it was going be a good one. I had the idea for this picture ready to roll so I packed up what little gear I needed …

Clock by the Lake

My wife and I went to Peachland BC yesterday. I got a new phone and of course I had to test out the camera. We walked along the beach with our dog and found this beautiful old clock. I know these old style of clocks are somewhat common in old parts of towns and cities …

A Calm Afternoon in Kelowna

Yesterday I met my wife after work downtown for a little stroll along the lakeside. The lake was especially calm and so was the afternoon sun. It was sweater weather and even though there were lots of people out and about the entire vibe was pretty mellow. When the water is still like this it …

This View

I really love the view of Kelowna from the westside. I have some ideas for photos on this side, but I kind of want to wait until the leaves come back out. I might do that, but I might not have the patients. I guess theres no reason I cant do both haha. Anyhow, for …

Cliff Light

I went out for a little hike yesterday on a new path I had never been on before. The whole trip was really great, but there was a nice stretch where I was walking along this cliff and the views were awesome. When I spotted this part of the cliff with this great bit of …

Lake is Life

No matter what the weather is doing I love this lake. I grew up by the water is almost all the places I lived (and there was a lot) growing up. Other than when I lived Phoenix AZ I spent my life living by either the ocean or a big lake. When I moved to …

Over That Hill

There’s a beautiful little city just over that hill and I am happy to call it home. I’d be lying if said I felt that way everyday, but on days when I’m out in the city or some where with a view of it I am reminded of why it’s a good place to live. …

The Pick Up

So I’m picking up a leaf in this picture, but it was totally set up haha. Also, I was not planning on getting in front of the camera that day, so wardrobe was given zero thought. I prefocused using my manual focus Nikon Ai 50mm f/1.8 using a spot in the sand as an estimation …

Penticton Winter Night

I took a little zip down to Penticton BC last night. I wasn’t there to shoot photos, but I thought it would be a shame to not at least try and get one shot while I was down there. I figured something by the beach would be good but it was really dark so I …

My Favourite Camera

This has been my favourite camera now for many years! I have and have had technically “better” cameras, but for whatever reason, I still use this one more than any other. It is the Sony a7R original. It’s a 36 megapixel camera with 14.1 stops of dynamic range and for me that is just perfect. …

This Kelowna View

I shot this one last week before all the snow fell. I’m sure this scene looks a lot different right now. Anyhow, I like looking at Kelowna from the other side of the lake. When I look at the city from this view it reminds me of how much good stuff we got here. Nice …

Down by the Creek

We took a walk around part of Mission Creek Park yesterday. Of course I brought my camera, but I had no intention of climbing down any embankment of snow and rocks. However, there I was over looking the creek and I knew to get any kind of half decent picture I’d have to climb down …
