Good Friday In The Hood

CK Wright Photo Trips 3 Comments

With the clearing weather conditions near noon as forecasted on Good Friday, it was time to explore the area where I live in south Burnaby. At this time of year, the area is so green and lush. It was a beautiful afternoon wandering around the neighbourhood capturing an ecliptic set of photos. The tulips were in bloom in the small …

Kapalua Part I

CK Wright Photo Trips 3 Comments

Over the spring break, I joined my brother, sister-in-law, and the nephews in Kapalua. In between family activities such as snorkeling and walks, there was time to wander around the Kapalua area and take photos. Unlike my previous trip to Maui in 2010, this trip was spent in the northwest corner of Maui. This provided plenty of opportunities to take …

The North Side of False Creek

CK Wright Photo Trips 4 Comments

Once an industrial hub, False Creek has made a dramatic transformation to a beautiful area of housing, interesting architecture, and pathways for walking and cycling. Last Sunday I walked the pathway along the north side starting at Science World. The low angle early morning light was reflecting off of the dome and adjacent buildings as I started the walk. I …

What Lies At The End Of The Road, Redux

CK Wright Photo Trips 4 Comments

Two years ago I posted photos from the Grant Narrows Regional Park and Pitt Addington Marsh Wildlife Management Area which lies at the end of Rannie Road in Pitt Meadows. Last weekend I had the opportunity to revisit the area and to explore other sections. Check out the older posting for comparison. We started off just outside of the regional …

Pump to Dinky Peaks

CK Wright Photo Trips

On Saturday we headed out at first light, snowshoeing in the Mount Seymour Provincial Park. There was plenty of snow on the ground, though very little snow on the trees as there had been the previous weekend on Cypress. The trail rises steeply as it ascends towards Pump Peak, though the views at the top are certainly worth the effort. …

Black Mountain to Eagleridge Bluff

CK Wright Photo Trips

On Sunday I explored the western side of Cypress Provincial Park, visiting Eagle Bluff, the two peaks of Black Mountain, and Cabin Lake. Ascending from the parking lot, the trail ascends steeply and the first views northwest across Howe Sound are visible. Below the north peak of Black Mountain is Cabin Lake, well snow covered and with long shadows in …

Pitt and Fraser Chilled

CK Wright Photo Trips

When it comes to my take on the recent cold spell in Metro Vancouver, I would say that the glass is certainly half full…and in this case, with the other half filled with ice! Prolonged periods of cold temperatures do not happen that many times in a winter and in some years not at all here on the south coast. …

Burrard Inlet Views from Burncouver

CK Wright Photo Trips

On Saturday I walked from Confederation Park in Burnaby to New Brighton Park in Vancouver along the Trans Canada Trail. The trail offers views of the industry along this part of Burrard Inlet and the North Shore. Here is a bulk carrier at Chemtrade Chemical’s facility with the Seymour Valley (right) and Lynn Valley (left) visible below the clouds. Lynn …
