Cape Bretton Island

Cape Breton Island is on the east end of Nova Scotia. McMillans Cove is a small cove off of the much larger Bras d’Or Lake, a saltwater lake. A great place for quiet family vacations with lots of vacation rentals. A long drive for groceries, though. Cape Breton has a…

Colony Farm Community Garden

The community garden is comprised of over 500 individual plots on seven-acres within Colony Farm Regional Park in Coquitlam, BC. It is a great location to see organic farming techniques, and to relax and enjoy nature. And, it is a wonderful spot to take photographs!

Lafarge Lake, Town Centre Park

I love the park in both the fall and spring, especially the area surrounding the lake. You can shoot fantastic fall foliage shots in the autumn, often softened with fog or mist. In the spring, hundreds of cherry blossom trees will be in full bloom, and provide a spectacular show.

Cypress Mountain Viewpoint

This is one of the best locations to get beautiful panoramic views of Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. On a clear day, you can see across Georgia Straight to Vancouver Island and southeast to Mount Baker in Washington State. The best time for photography here is at sunrise and sunset.…

Toogood Pond Park

Late afternoon sun provides drama and shadows as seen in the featured image. Tripods are no problem, but the mobility and flexibility of hand-held will…

Lake Ontario Waterfront Parks

Waterfront parks provide access to Lake Ontario in this primarily urban area. Not a dramatic sweeping landscape, but an easily accessible site with pleasant views and interesting features. Redeveloped from a long-time industrial lakeside processing plant, the area now has walking and riding paths along the shoreline, which includes stretches…

Montreal Waterfront

Shooting at night is ideal to capture this area. I took the images at about 10:30 PM. There were people about but not so many to interfere with shooting. The area is quiet, but safe and tripod shooting is not an issue. I set up a tripod, lowered my ISO…

Erie Lake, British Columbia

This small lake is abundant with birdlife and other critters including the Western Painted Turtle, many Beaver, Otter and Muskrat. I have personally photographed over 80 bird species on this lake from my kayak. The lake is only 1 km in length and 400 m wide and usually very calm.…

Notre-Dame Basilica

This is one of the most beautiful churches you will ever see. It is located in Montreal near multiple Metro and bus stops. The church charges a small fee and is open business hours most days of the week. You can check ahead to see if there is a service…
