On The Beach at Pacific Spirit Regional Park

CK Wright Photo Trips 6 Comments

Last Sunday a friend and I explored the beaches at the Pacific Spirit Regional Park, just below UBC. We descended the stairs from the Point Grey bluffs, down into the lifting fog. I liked this scene looking eastward down the beach at the dispersing fog. Looking in the opposite direction, this boulder filled beach extends off towards the north with …

November Sights along Highway 7

Last Saturday we went exploring some areas along Highway 7, including the sunrise at the Alouette River, Fraser Valley views from Mount Woodside, blueberry fields near Dewdney, and the Westminster Abbey. Sun rising over the Alouette River in rural Maple Ridge. After the sunrise, we walked a short distance down river. I noticed two deciduous trees framing the silo on …

Rock Solid Squamish

This composition resulted from experimenting with a …

Beyond the two mountain and forest outings, my trips have often times been centred around working on my expressionism and abstract compositions. Of course, on those outings I have also been capturing some representational photos including fall colours so it seemed easier to share those in one …

Creativity In The Garden

CK Wright Photo Trips

I wanted to share some additional photos from a recent trip to the Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver. A few photos from that visit were included in the September Expressionism and Abstract article, but there were many more interesting compositions! You may recall the dreamscape image I posted of the Bloedell Conservatory roof. This first photo is a representational composition …

A Forest, a Mystery, and a Bluff

CK Wright Photo Trips

Last Sunday a friend and I hiked the lower forested area of Mount Seymour near the headwaters of Mystery Creek, and then later in the day we hiked the ridge along the Suicide Bluffs trail. We started off on the CBC Trail, so named because it leads to the CBC broadcasting site. This area crosses the headwaters of Mystery Creek …
