Winter Grazing

Winter Grazing

There is an amazing amount of wildlife that can be found wandering around and, in some cases, living in the downtown peninsula of Vancouver. Of course, it's mostly due to the gigantic expanse of wooded area that is Stanley Park.

You can't find deer though ;-)

Not as far as I've seen anyway. This one was wandering around near a little town called Invermere which is near Banff. There, it's not unexpected to have to close down parts of town because of a wandering bear or two.

As far as Stanley Park, it has changed since I took that photo linked to above. Last week we had a tremendous wind storm that has leveled hundreds, if not thousands, of trees in the park. I don't have any photos of my own, but this one from flickr shows how powerful the winds were. Aside from showing how the 150 km/h winds could topple massive trees with extensive root networks, it's a really good photo.

Fuji Velvia 100, scanned, colour corrected, sharpened in Photoshop CS3.

On another note, I've been having serious reliability issues with my router, so there has been significant downtime with my site lately. I apologize and believe that I have fixed the issues so things should be alright now.
