The quality of emotional knowing has a finer integration with our spirit than anything that comes from barren intellectual processes. This point of view only accumulates slowly, out of long experience and contact with wordless influences. Under the spell of solitude and of natural beauty the root system of this kind of awareness establishes itself. ~ Cedric Wright, 1941 . . A couple of nights in the back country is the best kind of re-set. This image was taken on my most recent back country trip. I love the solitude of watching the sun rise, this time with only a porcupine for company! See you in a couple of days.
Summer is slipping away. Making the most of that last warmth with @katelynedgar
Wet is an understatement! Rain, rain & more rain but there is still a beauty in the damp & overcast landscape. As we descended from our hike I enjoyed the different layers of the scene as we rounded this corner. . . It’s not too late to get in on the giveaway I’m doing with @nikoncanada You have until midnight on September 7 to win a camera, details on how to enter on yesterday’s post!
I seem to have spent a lot of time this summer with a slightly foggy lens as I’ve been shooting in a lot of rain. I’ll take that over blue summer skies anytime though!! This image was taken the other evening as stormy weather passed through Salmon Arm! Thank you @demillesfarmmarket for giving us sunflowers to enjoy! 🌻
One of the benefits of hiking in rainy weather is the chance that beautiful light can break through! This was one of those moments! Wind meant that it was hard to keep those daisies still & I was battling with a tripod I wasn’t familiar with but glad I managed to capture it! Happy weekend everyone!
#NationalDogDay so here’s a post for my buddy @jack_thewolfskin He is one spoilt boy & I’m ok with that. He gives back in unconditional love everything & more that we give him. If you follow some great dog accounts, I’d love to hear about them in the comments. Here’s one for you to check out: @maggiethewunderdog when you hear her story it makes me want to spoil Jack all the more!
Happy #worldphotographyday everyone!! So grateful for this all consuming hobby & now job of mine. I’m pretty sure this addiction is probably one of the better ones you can have!! It definitely keeps me out of trouble (& occasionally gets me into it! )

I’m just about to head into the back country for a few days. I absolutely love the lack of cell service & wifi & I will be relishing my chance to enjoy nature without emails & phone messages! The forecast is pretty wet but I’m excited to be escaping the heat too! I’ll just leave this smiling face ( @jack_thewolfskin ) holding the space until I return in a few days! 🐺
Aliens have landed! 👽 I love the other worldly textures of sunflowers as they open! @chilliwacksunflowerfest
The first rays of morning light appear briefly between a bank of clouds @silverstarmtnresort

Photo bomber!!! @jack_thewolfskin Have a fun one as you head into the weekend!
So enjoyed spending a few hours at this spot with @danibanff a few weeks back. We pretty much just spent the time marvelling at the incredible views, lack of people & cute marmots!!!
This ear position is the one @jack_thewolfskin uses when he comes close to me. I always think of it as his love ears. Missed him so much last week I am feeling the need to post one of his pictures today. This boy truly demonstrates what unconditional love is! 🐺🐾
