Back Yard Photography

Similar to my last post where I talked about taking pictures not far from my car, I find that another great place for photography can be found not far from the home; the back yard! I have lived in some pretty incredible locations, and I think that largely contributes to much of my inspiration in photography. I would even go so far as to say that I have now been “ruined” in that I will not be able to live in a location that does not have a somewhat spectacular view! All of the following images were taken no further than 200 metres from my door in some of the places I have lived over the last 27 years!

Kelowna, British Columbia

The view that started it all! I moved to this house when I was 7 years old, and it is always spectacular!

 CMH Adamants, British Columbia

My current residence located deep in the wilderness of British Columbia, Canada. Treated to some of the most amazing views I have ever seen over the Goldstream Valley and Downie Peak.

North Vancouver, British Columbia

My move to Vancouver took me to a new landscape. It provided me with some new challenges, but still provided me with some stunning views. Living 200 metres from the ocean was a new environment for me, but I ended up really enjoying my time there.

Canmore, Alberta

Living in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains provided me with the most amazing photography opportunities, and was where I started seriously getting in to photography. With stunning landscapes everywhere you turn, all I really had to do was buy a half decent camera, and get out there!
