Foot Bridge

Many of the photos you will see in the coming days are of the Fraser Canyon. The Fraser River is the longest river in British Columbia and we basically followed it from where it empties into the Pacific Ocean in Vancouver, all the way up to the interior of BC.

This photo was taken from the highway on a bridge. It was a bit of a tricky picture to take because I ended up holding the camera down by my feet, poking the lens between two bars of the railing. I don't really know anything about the old suspension bridge that is featured here, except that it is now used as a foot bridge to enter one of BC's provincial parks.

There was significant cloud cover at the time of taking this photograph. It resulted in an even distribution of light, without a whole bunch of highlights and shadows to worry about. Unfortunately, it also leaves the photo looking a bit dull. I toyed with some yellow filters, but decided to leave it au naturale.

Canon PowerShot S2 IS, 37mm, f/5, 1/80 sec, ISO 50

That is just dandy, reminds me of the Merced Valley on the way to Yosemite here in California. I need to get up north of the border in the near future. Very pleasing shot.

Hi Tim,

Love the photographs. I was starting to get into this stuff a bit a while back too, though it's lost some steam. You've obviously got a knack for it! My dad sent me the link to your site. I've been looking to get back in touch with you for a while now. Send me an email at!

I love thos footbridge. WHat a wonderful trip, to follow the mighty Fraser to its source -- sort of like Livingstone in Africa. They really know how to name rivers right in your province.

Hey Tim,

It's Keith from Mackenzie. Great blog, you have a good eye. I would like to see some of the shots you took up on the mountain, when you get a chance. You will have to come up again.
