Since coming to British Columbia one month ago, I have done remarkably little “outdoorsy” stuff.  I haven’t gone camping.  I haven’t gone hunting. I haven’t climbed a mountain.

In fact, the vast majority of my time has been spent hanging out with people, not with nature.

But even though I haven’t had too many chances to go to parks or marine reserves, I have seen a ton of breathtakingly beautiful scenery.

So how, you might wonder, have I seen it?

The answer is that I’ve simply been here.  The beauty of nature is all over this place!

Here, to prove my point, are a few snapshots I took during my trip. For example, I took picture 10 at the Penelakut Island ferry landing.  Picture 6 was during a quick stop at a gas station.  Picture 2 was in somebody’s backyard.

The locations may not be particularly glamorous, but here in British Columbia, they don’t have to be!

    Loved the pictures….just amazing. Wow, wish I had a shot of that sunset…(from the ferry landing no less!)…so beautiful and serene. Blue starfish?….stunning. Just recently, photography has become a passion of mine because I get so pumped while attempting to capture …(and adequately give testimony to) the beauty of God’s infinite, genius design. I see God’s hand in every pattern, color hue, texture, shadow and ray of light, etc. Walking and snapping photos….for me, is a worship experience. Thanks so much for a taste of God reflected in the beauty of BC.
