Morning Bliss

Buntzen Lake in Anmore, BC is nothing short of spectacular scenery. Surrounded by mountains, this 4.8km lake is worth every moment you spend there. The lake boasts a great beach for swimming and has some additional more private locations to take a dip if you hike around to the sides or back of the lake. There are also several hiking trails in the area. The main trail circles the lake along the power lines and branches off into other trails that lead into the mountains. On this visit I hiked the Diez Vistas trail, but that’s a whole other story to write about.

If you get to the lake early in the morning you’ll be greeted with some peace and quiet and some amazing reflections on the water as the sun rises over the mountains. By mid-day the lake is bustling with kayakers, paddle boards and boaters which is probably one of the main attractions of this beautiful spot.

Below are some photos from sunrise before the big hike.

Where do you feel on top of the world?

I discovered an amazing location recently near the top of Mount Seymour in North Vancouver, BC. The symmetry in the rocks along with the reflection is just amazing! I had to stop for a moment to take in my surroundings and enjoy this beautiful place. Hiking with a friend is always a good idea and I was lucky enough to have a friend with me on this hike who was willing to pose in such an amazing scene.

Mount Seymour

Vancouver is full of incredible buildings boasting unique architectural designs. It’s a haven for any photographer interested in shooting architecture. Earlier this year I had the opportunity to photograph various buildings for Ocean Park Mechanical in Surrey. Below are a few photos from the shoot.
