Petroglyph of Seal in Fulford Harbour
Most recent comment: Saturday, January 23rd, 2016 at 21:54:06

From what I know of, this petroglyph (the large eyes, the mouth open with teeth)
means seal. There are petroglyphs on Gabriola and Seals as well.


Could this seal petroglyph be depicting Clearwater BC comet impact doublet (2 craters, same age). Looking at Gabriola Island/Canada in general petroglyphs for heart shaped face with the big eyes of an owl.

Seurat Bathing At Asnieres
Most recent comment: Saturday, October 24th, 2015 at 23:47:07
This shot really reminds me of a Georges Seurat painting: A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte

Not least because I saw it the week before in the British National Gallery.

And what does it feel like like? Mountains instead of chimney pots. That means a lot. The chimneys were what caught Seurat's eye, I am sure.

Downtown Alert Bay
Most recent comment: Friday, October 17th, 2014 at 20:17:46

Alert Bay is on the southern side of Cormorant Island and has a population of about 600 people.  The town
has some beautifully maintained houses (painted in great colors for the fog) and a number of commercial buildings.


population is 1,200 to 1,500

Store on Wharf at Namu
Most recent comment: Saturday, June 21st, 2014 at 20:53:30

Namu used to be a self contained fish processing area - The store was large and could suply
the ships with both their food needs and equiptment for boat repair.  The building on the left
is a restaurant/diner.


This brings back memories. My dad was an engineer at the fish cannery in either 1956 or 1957. I was only 9 or 10 & remember going to the one room school with several grades being taught at the same time. Also remember swinging on a thick rope out over the rocks & ocean with other kids for fun. Loved it there.

Yellow Hand Fruit

Anyone know what this is called? These are wired together into a small stand - the more expensive ones were still attached to branches.

View from Hotel - Namu
Most recent comment: Sunday, November 24th, 2013 at 21:59:29

You can see the decayed boardwalk and the fuel tanks.  The local caretakers
have built a walk way around the colapsed section to give access to some of the other
buildings and the lake behind.


Was there as an archaeologist in the 1970 field season. I loved Namu.

Tags: alpine, flower
Species: Platanthera dilatata (white bogorchid)

This is actually a white rein orchid

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013 at 08:34:14

I believe the scientific name is correct - Platanthera dilatata, but the common name is all over the map. I used "Plants of Coastal BC" (Pojar, Mackinnon) as my primary reference - it calls it "White Bog Orchid". Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS) calls it "white bog orchid". eflora calls it "fragrant white bog orchid; fragrant white rein orchid; scentbottle". Take your pick.

Glassy Falls
Most recent comment: Wednesday, April 17th, 2013 at 22:27:59
This is the Puntledge River side of the falls. You can see the fish ladder that has been built into the river.

Apparently there is a land developer now blocking access to the falls. You can find out more here on facebook.

David Mark Walking Under Giant Fern

How come here in the outside you use 250 asa, and inside the caves 100 ?
Diana
Thursday, February 7th, 2013 at 02:03:06

Outside was hand held - 1/30th of a second at f2.8 is as slow as I am willing to go (and the lens opens up). In the cave I used a tripod so the difference between 0.5 seconds or 1 second is pretty much nil.

Stream By Falls
Most recent comment: Thursday, October 25th, 2012 at 22:32:31
This stream looked unaltered by man and I think shows some of the flora growing in Japan.

Did you have to use an ND filter to get this shot - its something similar I would like to achieve

It's 50 speed film and a tripod - probably f16 or greater. I'm guessing from the veil it's between half and two seconds. Sunny Sixteen (on a bright day, you get 1/film speed (1/50th) at f11. Because of the forest canopy and overcast, it's probably 4 stops down - 1/25, 1/12, 1/6, 1/3 or so.

This is the basement of the used to be co-op is now
a museum of all the stuff that was left behind.

My family lived in Ocean Falls in 1977-1978. We had an old player piano that we left. I wonder if it is in the basement of the co-op?

is it poisonous?

Monday, March 5th, 2012 at 12:09:39

I once took a course on picking mushrooms. The short answer - if you don't know what it is, it's poisonous. I believe this was a woody mushroom - I doubt you would want to eat it.
