Beautiful Barren Lands
British Columbia, Canada's most western province is a varied topography, in terms of the lay of the land, it features stunning high mountain peaks to the blue Pacific ocean. I love living here and I am grateful that I have had the opportunity to make photographs which is my expression of art. One of the places I like to escape to on my days off is the White Lake area, south of Penticton, about a one hour drive from my home. At first glance it's a rather desolate barren kind of landscape, with only a few trees scattered here and there amongst the sage brush. The smell of the sage and the feeling of openness is so captivating which refreshes the soul, when hiking in this area from the higher elevations I can gaze upon the open spaces as the sky meets the land and fuses into one, with it's varied moods, its not that big of an area, only a few square kilometres but for me I can dream big.
I will likely post a few more images from this area, this one posted was made on an outing back In August of this year, the clouds were beautiful, I shot 30 sheets of film that day and could have shot twice that many.
