Heading out West in August
15/05/09I am very excited about an up-and-coming trip we have planned to tour British Columbia (BC) and Alberta in Canada. We are traveling for just under a month from Vancouver, across to Vancouver Island, taking the 'Inner Passage' ferry to Bella Coola and then traveling across BC to the Rockies where we will explore Jasper and Field, finally returning from Calgary.
During this time we are primarily staying at small B&Bs so we can meet and talk with people to really appreciate the locations we visit. We can also then take local advice on those places not covered by the guide books.
I have 2-main photographic projects I hope to achieve. I want to develop my night photography with cityscape images of Vancouver and Victoria both centrally and across the bay. Secondly, I hope to capture the Grizzly Bears feeding as they travel up the Atnarko River in Tweedsmuir National Park following the migrating salmon. We are hoping to use a river boat 'drift' to keep noise and disturbance to the bears to a minimum.
