Vancouver’s Celebration of Lights – Spain Edition 2011

Posted on 4th August 2011 in events

Every year in Vancouver we host the Celebration of Lights, a celebration piqued with fireworks: Saturday, Wednesday, Saturday, Wednesday it seems every time.

For the first Wednesday show this year, I headed down to Kits beach where I caught some nice shots, and took a few of the lit Vancouver cityscape afterwards.

The key? tripod and wireless trigger.

Hiking the Stawamus Chief in Squamish, BC.

Posted on 1st August 2011 in adventure, nature, wandering

On June 4th, I headed out to Squamish for a late hike up the Stawamus Chief with my tripod, and some essentials for nutrients and hydration. I realized it was a late hike, and as I started, I was met by a few concerned faces and one man that actually stopped me and asked if I knew how long the hike was and that it would most likely be getting dark as I came down. I smiled and asked him if he had a great hike today, “Yes, I’ve done this before.”

I met a fellow from Germany visiting at the top, who couldn’t help himself but comment on my camera and was amazed that I would take a tripod up on such a hike, remarking that only somebody who was serious would do that. It made me feel a bit proud, I’ll admit. We hopped down the hill as the dusk settled on us and at the bottom we talked for a few minutes, but as you can see at the end, when I was getting into my car, it was dark out.
