Here and There on the Christmas Break

CK Wright Photo Trips

Over the past several days, I have been out to several sites photographing and I thought it would be a nice change from my usual posts to share a few photos from each. On Boxing Day I headed over to Pritchett Creek located in Pinecone Burke Provincial Park looking for some ice and snow shots. There was a few inches …

Dusk at Vancouver Convention Centre

CK Wright Photo Trips

After work on Friday afternoon, I headed to the nearby Vancouver Convention Centre and Jack Poole Plaza located along the Vancouver waterfront. The public walkways offer spectacular views of the North Shore, the coastal mountains, and Stanley Park. The sun was getting low in the sky when I arrived and my first stop was this vantage point looking north-west towards …

Early Morning at Steveston

CK Wright Photo Trips

It was an early start this morning at Steveston, located along the Fraser River. Arriving before sunrise at a marina near No. 2 Road, I was eager to capture some night photos of the boats and lights. Near sunrise, I spotted the illuminated low clouds and fog over the Fraser River and quickly made my way to the London Landing …

Fog at the Foreshore

CK Wright Photo Trips

While most Vancouverites were likely hoping the near week long fog would burn off on the weekend, I was actually hoping it would stay.

No matter how many times I have visited, I always come away with unique photos. It was a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon as I explored …

Colours in the Canyon

As I left Hope early Friday morning beginning the climb to the Fraser Plateau via the Fraser Canyon, the …

Sea to Mountain, Burnaby

Today’s outing started at the Barnett Marine Park in Burnaby, traversed the north slope in the Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area and then topped out at the lookouts on Burnaby Mountain. After several days of rain and wind, the morning brought a mixture of clouds and sun and I was excited to get out for some photography. Barnett Marine Park has …

Fall Colours, Noons Creek to Bert Flinn Park

CK Wright Photo Trips

With the short time frame for  fall colours, it’s important to know areas that have lots of deciduous to ensure the best chance of capturing those beautiful colours. Today I headed out at first light starting in the east at Noons Creek in Coquitlam and walking through urban forests to Bert Flinn Park located to the west in Port Moody. This is …
