Yesterday I continued on from where I had turned-around two weeks ago while out on the on the Pitt River Dyke Deboville Slough walk.   This time I parked beside the slough so that I could access the northern portion of the dyke trail that continues to Addington Point, adjacent to Minnekhada Regional Park.  This section of the trail winds its way eastward along the Deboville …

Chris Wright Photo Trips

For this first day of 2017, I decided to photograph through the day starting at sunrise and ending at sunset.  I thought it would be an interesting project and a good way to kick off the 2017 photography year.  I started at Bramble Park in Coquitlam at sunrise, and yes I was a little bleary-eyed after the New Years eve celebrations!  …
