Finally a new post!


Time for an update!


First of all my apologies for not posting anything for a while.  I am back and hope to share some more photos in the future.  Thank you to everybody who reads my posts and enjoys my photos, I really appreciate that you have taken the time to stop by and have a look...THANK YOU!  

I would like to start with the promotion of a calendar for 2015 I put together with images from in and around the Vancouver area in British Columbia, Canada.  If you are interested in buying one, please click the preview below and it will take to the right page for purchasing through Lulu.com. I have also ordered some myself from another company, they are a bit cheaper if you buy them through me. If they go fast (I have several of them reserved already), I might do another order.  Please click here:  CONTACT ME!






Again it's almost been a year since I have posted photos on this photo blog.  I will share some photos that I have taken over the past year in our area, during our trips and such.  I am still planning on writer a tutorial post on the use of a polarizing filter and some other filters I use...keep your eyes open for my future posts.  In the mean time I hope you will enjoy the photos I am posting below.

Beautiful Places


Beautiful Places



First of all I would like to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  I hope you are enjoying your time with family and friends during the holiday season.  I wish you lots of luck, happiness and good health for 2014 and I hope to keep posting some interesting blog posts and photos.




I also like to thank everybody who reads my posts and enjoys my photos, I really appreciate that you take some time out for that!

Since it's been almost a year since I have posted photos from some trips and from the beautiful places in our area, I thought I would dedicate this post to some beautiful scenery photos of places we have visited in the past year.


Most photos are from in and around our area which is the Greater Vancouver area of British Columbia, Canada.  We also went on a couple of trips this year, at the end of June we spent 1 week at Mara Lake which is located in the North Shuswap Region of British Columbia.  This trip is about 500km east of Vancouver, it's a beautiful lake surrounded by mountains. We also went for a week to the Oregon Coast in the USA.  We have been to this area in the past few years.  We rented an apartment in Lincoln City right at the beach.  We truly enjoy our time here.  

I haven't had too much time lately to go out and take photos.  It's not so easy when you have a little one of 3.5 years old to go out and take photos during sunrise or sunset.  In the spring/summer and fall the sun gets up way too early and goes down after she goes to sleep.  Now in the winter time it's a bit easier to be out at sunset, but usually it's either raining, too cloudy or too cold. Sunrise is still fairly early too as our little one is usually still sleeping when the sun comes up.  Let's hope there will be some more opportunities in the New Year!

So, it will be just some scenery photos in this post since I have no inspiration to write a tutorial type of blog post this time around.  We also have been busy over the holidays with work and other things. Next time I will try and dedicate a blog post on the circular polarizing filter.
