I was lucky enough to be able to make a road trip up to Port Hardy last weekend. My purpose for the 6 hour drive was to go photograph the black bears fishing for spawning salmon at the mouth of the Keogh River. All I can say is that it was worth every kilometer I drove! I hiked the 2.5 km trail into the river with two friends early on Saturday morning. They left around noon to go whale watching and I stayed and spent the full day at the river photographing all the action. I believe I saw 8 or 9 different bears during the day, including a very emaciated older sow with her cub. Black bears are not the most proficient hunters of salmon but I did get to see 4 large pinks get caught. The salmon were still very fresh and quite silver. I took over 2400 pictures that day and these are my favorite images so far.
And another slideshow! This time it's the 2018 Coombs Rodeo. Bronco and Bull riding and Barrel Racing, it's a real Vancouver Island tradition. Images by moi, the slideshow created by the amazingly talented Sean Sherstone! Watch it full screen!

I got up at 4:30 this morning to let the dogs out and even then I could tell this was going to be an amazing sunrise! We drove up to Sebastian Beach in Lantzville and caught a beautiful sunrise. Here are my favourite images.
