Divergent Coloured Paths. The juxtaposition of white and red lighted lines crossing each other with a black background was a strong thought as I created this. Inverted Canal. It was the the reflective water and the linear arrangement of the canal and the willow trees that attracted me to make this composition. I like the divisions of reflective water and …

Close to the parking lot is the beautiful and photogenic Rice Lake. This lake was actually used as a water storage reservoir in the early days of Metro Vancouver’s water system. One of the best …
