My Magnificent Canada
I have had the good fortune to be able to reside in what I feel is one of the most spectacular and beautiful places in the world, that is Canada, a place that I dearly love. I also have had the double good fortune to reside in Western Canada where there is ample photographic landscape nourishment to feed my view cameras, even when I am not making pictures just to be able to take in the abundant views that surround me on my daily journey through life is something else. My home is located in the Okanagan in the south central part of British Columbia and from here I am within a one day drive or less to some incredible scenery , the Pacific Ocean coastal areas to the west or the Rocky Mountains to the east. The image posted is one that I made with my Tachihara 4 x 5 view camera and a 120mm lens from Abbott Ridge looking towards Mount Sir Donald at 3,277 meters ( or 7145 feet ) in Glacier National park in September of 1988.
