On and Adjacent to Westham Island

CK Wright Photo Trips Leave a Comment

An area I haven’t explored before is the south Delta area along the Fraser River, including Westham Island. This time of year is perfect for exploring local sights given the shorter daylight and fickle weather. As you drive further west out of the community of Ladner, the more back in time the whole area feels. Here is one such sight, …

Here and There in South Burnaby and Port Royal

CK Wright Photo Trips

Here and there indeed as I rambled through various sites in south Burnaby and Port Royal last weekend. In search of fall colours, I took a walk through Burnaby’s Central Park on Saturday. While the vine maple there was mostly green, there were several patches that had turned orange to red. On Sunday, I walked through Byrne Creek Ravine Park …

Road to the Big Bars

CK Wright Photo Trips

Clinton is a great jumping off point to see the unique landscape and forested regions west towards the Fraser River. On this day outing I visited the three Big Bars, the Big Bar Reaction Ferry at the Fraser River, Little Big Bar Lake, and Big Bar Lake. Driving southwest from Clinton along the paved Clinton-Pavilion Road leads through ranch land …

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 …

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 …

Colours in the Canyon

CK Wright Photo Trips

The scenic Fraser River Canyon and the Thompson River Canyon, a spectacular sight at any time of year, are even more so with the fall colours at their peak. The rivers have cut through limestone and volcanic layers leaving vast sections of deep narrows canyons. As I left Hope early Friday morning beginning the climb to the Fraser Plateau via the Fraser Canyon, the …

Port Royal and Deas Island Regional Park

CK Wright Photo Trips

Yesterday was a double header, starting in the morning with an urban stroll along the Fraser River in the newer community of Port Royal and then in the afternoon, further west on Deas Island. The community of Port Royal is located on the eastern tip of Lulu Island with the mighty Fraser River flowing past.  Lulu Island is the largest …

Snow Covered Derby Reach

CK Wright Photo Trips

On Sunday morning with a short break in the multi-day snow fall here in Metro Vancouver, I headed over to Derby Reach Regional Park.  Having walked that park numerous times, I knew the area has deciduous and fruit trees, perfect for holding freshly fallen snow on their slender branches.  The contrast of the dark toned branches with the bright lightly toned snow can …
