A picture of me, standing proud in a remote estuary deep in the heart of “The Great Bear Rainforest.” I had the distinct privilege of being an assistant to our lead guide on a few different occasions. Thank you to my friend Andy Silver for taking and sending this image. Check out more of Andy’s work here: flickr.com/photos/andy999
Rock carvings and paintings are found throughout the inhabited world. In British Columbia alone, over 500 examples of this type of archaeological site have been recorded, more than in any other province in Canada.
This makes two months in a row now, April and May that I have been lucky enough to see and photograph wild Wolves. I’m getting closer and closer to “the shot” I want. I was pretty far out when I created this image before the Wolf ran off. That’s a good thing though, to know that it was not habituated or tolerant of human presence.
Typically River Otters are rather shy, this one though played on the rocks right in front of me for nearly 20 minutes. They can grow to 1.4 meters long and weigh about 13.5 kilograms. They have the longest lasting fur of the entire Otter / Weasel family.
It was an Eagle that first inspired my true journey as a photographer. Every so often, I get reminded of that initial inspiration.
Between May 15th – May 25th I again had the honor of exploring Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest and sharing some pretty incredible moments with Grizzly Bears. I continue to be amazed by these majestic animals and their graceful sense of power. It’s reassuring to know that these animals can no longer be hunted for trophy’s in the province of British Columbia.
This is Calvert Island in the background – May 4th, 2018. Scientists have found 13,000-year-old human footprints on this island, making them the oldest found thus far in North America. Read more here: thewire.in/…/north-americas-first-immigrants-may-have-walked-along-the-beach-to-go-south
On the morning of May 5th in “Shearwater” which is actually a “corporation” directly across from Bella Bella, this Eagle was perched on a tree alongside the main dock.
