Englishman River Falls, Vancouver Island, British Columbia by Anne McKinnell

I grew up on Vancouver Island. It is a gorgeous part of the world, especially in summer time.

Lower Myra Falls (Part 2)

Lower Myra Falls, Strathcona Park, British Columbia

Usually when I find a great scene like the one at Lower Myra Falls in Strathcona Park on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, I start off wide and photograph the entire scene.

Lower Myra Falls (Part 1)

Lower Myra Falls, Strathcona Park, British Columbia

One of my favourite places in Strathcona Park on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, was Lower Myra Falls. The hike is about 1 kilometer from the parking area and it leads to a stunning group of cascades deep within the forest above Buttle Lake.

Falling Water Cascade, Virginia

It was so windy in Shenandoah National Park during our visit that I didn't get many fall colour photos there. But we continued on down the Blue Ridge Parkway which runs around 450 miles through the mountains along the Appalachian Trail. This is a waterfall that is not in the National Park, but it was one of the prettiest spots I found along the Parkway. While not readily … [Read more...]

Miner’s Beach Lake Superior

After doing a little research I found out there was an interesting waterfall somewhere on Miner’s Beach where the water falls onto layers of sandstone before sliding into the lake. Since I didn’t know exactly where it was, we left our campsite a couple of hours before … [Read more...]
