Locarno Beach Sunset

Sunsets in Vancouver are Perfect.

There’s no other way to put it really. Vancouverites are lucky to live on the West Coast of Canada, most within a very short distance of the ocean where all the magic takes place. I’ve found a great sense of peace in Vancouver, especially at sunset when everyone around you takes moment to watch and enjoy the last glimpse of sunlight after another great day.

There are endless locations to take in the beautiful colours that unfold before you in the sky. The reflections in the water and long shadows that fall behind the various landscapes. The moment before the sun dips beyond the horizon is probably the best for some wonderful warm light in your photographs.

Everyday is unique. There’s no sunset that is the same as another. The light changes every night the sun goes down, different location, different clouds in the sky and different landscape depending on where you are. This is one of the wonderful things about the sunset as you’ll never see the same thing twice.

The warm glow that lingers after the sun disappears can create the most amazing silhouettes. It’s interesting to see the shapes that form in the landscape and makes great subjects for some wonderful photos. It can change so much that sometimes I feel like I’m in a completely different country. Africa perhaps…

If you’re in search of the “Perfect” sunset, I suggest you head to Vancouver. You just might find what you’re looking for.

Kennedy Falls in North Vancouver

Hiking to Kennedy Falls is a Refreshing Forest Adventure

I had heard a little bit about Kennedy Falls over the last year and seen a few photographs here and there but I really wasn’t expecting to see such a magnificent waterfall after hiking 2 hours deep in the woods. The early spring weather has been very warm and the snow has melted quite fast leaving the lakes and rivers overflowing with water. Kennedy Falls was gushing when we arrived and it looked just spectacular.

The trail is quite technical with lots of roots exposed and trees fallen over the trail. You’ll have a lot of short climbs up and down the trail as you move through the forest although you only climb 150 meters in elevation. It’s worth it though.

On route to Kennedy Falls you will see a beautiful old Cedar Tree just off the trail. It’s so big that it takes several people joining hands to form a circle around it. A very beautiful site if you don’t see big trees too often.

If you’re looking for a short but more advanced hike with a beautiful reward at the end, Kennedy Falls is a must!

A few months ago I got together with my uncle to do a portrait session for a new solo album cover. He’s a super talented musician and had some interesting ideas for how the shots should look. We put our heads together and both agreed on something gritty in black and white. We spent an evening doing some head shots in his basement where he spends his time recording his latest original tracks. Here are the results:
