There’s something about a panoramic view, maybe because we don’t shoot them often, mainly because they can be a challenge for editors and for layout. The lone drummer was an early arrival for a high school band practice.
The beautiful thing about the weather here on the southern tip on British Columbia’s Vancouver Island is that this photo could have been taken this week as I saw lots of golfers on the links while driving around. The unfortunate thing about the weather here is that this image was actually taken last June.

Our annual Best Of The City supplement came out Friday and aside from other images throughout the magazine I wrote and photographed two articles.

This photo was taken two weeks ago along Colquitz Creek. The youngsters were being shown a large spawned out male Coho salmon. The volunteers at the creek were ecstatic. They’d been seeing the largest returns of spawning salmon in years. Later that afternoon, an oil spill occurred sending the fluid into the creek. The salmon have disappeared and attempts continue to try and clean the creek but it appears the triumph has turned into tragedy, an all too often occurrence now.
