Very good news...........  I am already home from the hospital after full knee replacement surgery Friday night. The people treating me told me I could stay longer if I wanted to........... I didn't want to so here I am. My recovery will take about 3 months, but it can be done from my home and a nearby physiotherapy center.

+Derek Grant Good to hear your making good progress, my dad is also awaiting to see a surgeon for his knee and hip. He was with us in Italy and he had a hard time visiting the old towns but manage, however by near the end he was done. Anyhow hope to see you soon too, but fully recover first and keep in touch.

Yesterday, Georgette and I drove from Banff to nearby Camrose, Alberta where we met up with an old school chum of Georgette's, and her husband. Georgette and Lorraine hadn't seen each other since 1969, so there was lots to talk about.

Today, we drive home to Vancouver (850 kilometers distant) after 10 wonderful days together on the road.

Rearguard Falls is located just off the highway leading to Jasper National Park. It is one of our favorite stopping points - a great place to stretch one's legs. The signpost claims that the falls are the final barrier for most salmon migrating upstream..... an impressive feat as the Pacific Ocean is several hundred kilometers distant.

Hi Dylan....... this is definitely my foto (actually, it is a composite of three photos.) Check the camera and date information that comes with the photo ( see 'photo details' above.) You'll see that I use a D800 camera.

Hi +Esteban Cl ........... great to see you here. I hope you do get to see Peyto Lake  some day. As you mention, it has a remarkable emerald color during summer. Peyto Lake is 30 - 40 kilometers north of Moraine Lake, which you see here, and which also has a remarkable emerald color during the summer. The Canadian Rockies are definitely worth a visit, especially under sunny skies.

Introduction
G+ Circles: If you add me to one of your circles , I will circle you back if your profile includes your photo and provides a reasonable amount of information about you and your interests. I enjoy seeing the work of other photographers, including newcomers to this medium.

I will not circle those who conceal or misrepresent their identity,  or who are trying to sell me something, or who show hatred towards others.
 
If you comment on one of my photos, I will make every effort to comment back. I love receiving +1's on my photos but don't always have the time to acknowledge them. 
 
I grew up in West Vancouver and attended the University of British Columbia, where I honored in Political Science. I've lived in Vancouver all my life. I am in my second marriage - to a beautiful, wonderful woman and soul mate, Georgette. We married in 1997. 

Since my retirement, Georgette and I have traveled to Europe, India and Nepal, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Morocco, Turkey, and most recently, South America (Ecuador, Chile, Peru, Brazil, and Argentina.) 

My passions include writing, movies and music of all kinds, browsing the Internet, cycling, hiking, and keeping fit at the local community centre. I am also chairperson of the Vancouver School Board Archives and Heritage Committee (a voluntary group.)
 
I became interested in photography at an early age. During Grades 11 and 12, I was lead photographer for my school's Student Annual, which required that I develop and print all my photos. My cameras included a Rolleiflex (Tessar) and later, 2 Leicaflexes.
 
I bought my first digital camera, an Olympus, in 2005, and was instantly hooked. I especially enjoyed being able to PhotoShop my photos. It was like having my darkroom back, only better! I have used a Nikon D800 since 2012. However, during travels to other countries, I continue to rely on my trusty Nikon D80. My cameras are my constant companions.
 
Sharing photos through Picasa and G+ has opened my eyes to many new ways of approaching photography. I've learned a lot from other photographers, and I believe I've become a better photographer as a result.
