Lynn Canyon, at last
November 7, 2007

I've been paying regular visits to Lynn Canyon for two years now. And for two years, I've wished I could finally show it to someone who would understand... Wishes do come true, eventually - and next time we'll go to Twin Falls too, I promise. ;-) But for the time being, what matters is that I have once and for all found a pair of eyes who see what I see. And come to think of it, those eyes were at home by the green water of Lynn Creek. It's such a relief. Beauty is meant to be shared,...

Lynn Canyon in shades of grey
December 5, 2006

As much as the creek can sparkle with color in summertime, it is turned by the snow into an almost surreal monochrome world. So I'm sitting at Waves with my coffee, trying to figure out what's wrong with the shot I originally liked most, and along comes Nicky. She glances at the picture opened in Lightroom and without even thinking twice about it, she smiles and waves (pardon the pun) a hand at the screen, saying I should crop it vertically to enhance the bridge. Of course, why didn't I think of it earlier? Now it's...

Lynn Creek unsuspended
August 20, 2008

Lynn Canyon Park is probably the most extraordinarily beautiful, most accessible spot in the Greater Vancouver, if not the entire Lower Mainland. But it's also relatively small and on summer week-ends, the crowd tends to get overwhelming. With Twin Falls downstream, the Suspension Bridge in the middle and 30 Ft. Pool upstream, all within a 20 minute walk, options are a bit limited and one must be willing to share the creek's stunning emerald water with many others...Surprisingly, the Lynn Headwaters Regional Park just...

Lynn Creek, once in a while - HDR
October 6, 2007

The Coast Mountains are much older than me. Over a hundred million years ago, they were formed by the not-so-friendly collision between a group of volcanic islands and the continent (the continent had the right of way but you know these island types, they are frivolous and distracted. Most of them.) A mighty 1600 km long, the Coast Mountains are a subrange of the Pacific Ranges and extend along the coast of British Columbia from Alaska all the way down to the Fraser River delta, where Vancouver is happily nested. Their...

An afternoon by Lynn Creek ~
May 9, 2006

2:00 pm, Lynn Canyon Park, North Vancouver The river is singing its perpetual water song, the sun shinning in a postcard-perfect blue sky and the emerald green 30 ft. Pool is as inviting as ever. People were loud crossing the suspension bridge and wandering down the path to the river but once they reach the pool, their voices drop to the respectful tone one uses inside a church. Arriving here is a moment you remember forever. Even knowing how green the water will be, how warm the sun will feel on the rocks and how...

Escape From New York City
September 2, 2014

There are no easy options when it comes to escaping the Big Apple and its madly turbulent crowds. I like to imagine the city as surrounded at all times by a series of concentric circles, or bubbles, characterized by a slowly decreasing level of overpopulation. The inner bubble is centered on Manhattan and within it, no hope subsists. There will be a mob no matter where one goes. The second bubble typically includes the five boroughs and while there are hotspots, it is usually possible to find relative peace in outer...
