Every summer they hold a sand sculpting competition on the beach up in Parksville. (https://www.parksvillebeachfest.ca/) Sculptors travel from all corners of the globe to participate in the competition and exhibition in Parksville. This year I was lucky enough to be invited by Jack Harynuk to come and photograph the amazing sculptures at night! As it gets dark they light up all the sculptures with colored lights and to me this is the best time to photograph them. Lots of lovely vivid colors and dark shadows to explore! Here are some of my favorite images from a very nice evening of photography.
On Wednesday, August 8th, the Royal Canadian Air Force Snowbirds put on a show above downtown Nanaimo to raise money for the CHILD Foundation. It was a beautiful evening and the waterfront was PACKED with locals and tourists. As always the Snowbirds put on a hell of show. Here are some of my favorite shots.
Thanks to Sucha Ollek for inviting me out to photograph a sunrise with him this morning. It was a good incentive to drag my sorry butt out of bed at 4am! We went to a beach at the very end of Stephenson Point Road. Its an interesting beach with some interesting rock formations and a beautiful black pebble shoreline. Considering it is like 3 minutes from my house I am guessing I will be back! Also I was VERY impressed with my new Nisi 10 stop ND filter. It was recommended to me by Dave Hutchinson ( https://www.davehutchison.ca/ ) and I am just loving the colors it produces!
