Stained Glass – Mount Baker from Sidney

Right before the beginning of the pandemic, I took a one day class in making stained glass. It’s a medium I’ve always been fascinated by. I thought I’d post this image of a small sun catcher I made based on a design from a previous painting I did, Mount Baker from Sidney. I am looking forward to creating more as time goes on.

Standing at the Water’s Edge at Elk Lake

There’s a trail that winds its way around the shores of Elk and Beaver Lake. They were once two separate bodies of water, but a dam has since joined them together. After a long walk around the lake, I stopped to gaze back at where we’d been soon after we started out. There was a stillness to the water, lapping softly at the tree roots in the glow of the sunset.

Arbutus on Little P’Kols

At the top of little P’Kols (also known as Little Mount Douglas), there is a single arbutus tree away from the rest. It’s a nice walk to get up there, with a bit of a huff and a puff uphill. Once you are at the top, you are rewarded with this view that overlooks West across Cordova Bay and up the Saanich Peninsula to the North.

Maple in the Canopy at Goldstream

Looking up in Goldstream often feels like architecture. The way the leaves from the maples catch the sun; it often reminds me of stained glass.
