Water Was The Theme

CK Wright Photo Trips

Whether that was flowing, covering, or rising into a cloud, water was certainly the theme on Saturday. I started off at Noons Creek on the boundary of Port Moody and Coquitlam. The overcast conditions were perfect for capturing the delicate highlights in the flowing water and with the recent precipitation, I thought the creek would have some good flow in …

Fall Colours, Noons Creek to Bert Flinn Park

CK Wright Photo Trips

With the short time frame for  fall colours, it’s important to know areas that have lots of deciduous to ensure the best chance of capturing those beautiful colours.

Where the Forest Meets the Sea

After a few hours and with the sun rapidly rising over Cates Park …

It was an overcast day so I figured that forest and creek photography would be a good fit and …

Noons Creek and Forest with Snow

CK Wright Photo Trips

Metro Vancouver has had no shortage of snow over the past few weeks and after the latest snowfall on Sunday, I wanted to capture some of those winter scenes.  I headed over to the northwest corner of Coquitlam and snowshoed up into the forest surrounding Noons Creek. There was a decent amount of snow and with it being wet, it was clinging to the alder …

October Roundup

CK Wright Photo Trips

Having visited several interesting locations this month, I thought I would share those as a single post rather than my usual one entry per outing. As I did in my last post, I have included a map showing these areas. Fraser Canyon In the southern section of the Fraser Canyon I found these interesting fall colours along Highway 1. The …
