Cascade Falls and Murdo Creek

CK Wright Photo Trips

Located in the Fraser Valley, north of Mission is the 30 metre Cascade Falls.  The area is protected in the Cascade Falls Regional Park and contains a short trail to the waterfall and a suspension bridge to a view point.  Today I headed over to the park hoping that the unsettled weekend weather would hold.  As it turned out, the weather and …

Ideal Lighting at Golden Ears Provincial Park

CK Wright Photo Trips

When I posted in June that I had visited Golden Ears Provincial Park, I mentioned that the bright, cloudless day added to the challenge of capturing the waterfall and the upper sections of Gold Creek.  Today I re-visited the park and fortunately there was enough periods of cloud that I was able to capture the waterfall, the sections of Gold …

Bowen Island, Snug Cove to Killarney Lake

CK Wright Photo Trips

An interesting day trip from Metro Vancouver is to head over to Bowen Island, taking BC Ferries as a foot passenger.  The ferry departs from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver, takes about 30 minutes for the crossing, and arrives at the eastern end of Bowen Island in Snug Cove.  What makes this a compelling trip is the combination of trails …

Big Bar Lake Provincial Park

Kanaka Creek Regional Park – Cliff Falls

CK Wright Photo Trips

Yesterday evening I headed over to Maple Ridge to photograph the water falls along Kanaka Creek in the Kanaka Creek Regional Park, Cliff Falls section. I have photographed here before, though it has been over 15 years. The lighting was perfect when I arrived with the canyon in the shade, though it did make for some long exposures. Flowing water …

RV’ing and Fleeting Scenes

CK Wright Photo Trips

I had the opportunity to explore and photograph more of the Cariboo with an invite to go RV’ing with a friend. While I have explored various sections of BC through tent camping, I was very interested in trying out the RV method. The advantage with camping is the ability to quickly access areas in changing light and weather. When you …
