Double double
Speeding past Lake Roberts on the highway a few miles north of Campbell River, drivers catch a glimpse of blue water, bits of sky behind the trees. I took the side road instead, down almost at the water level, and was fascinated by the reflections from that...

So blue
Away from the light pollution of cities, night falls quickly. The last colours to go are on the blue/violet end of the spectrum. Brown's Bay Marina, 6 PM. Fish boats, Brown's Bay Small lights, orange and white, reflecting over water have always carried the ...

Lake X
"Brown's Bay Resort", the sign said. Only 5 km. off the main highway north. It was after sunset, and I should have been heading home, but what's 5 km? An hour's drive, it was, there and back. The road is potholed gravel, sometimes one lane only. It winds th...

Forgotten worms
I was tidying up my files, and found this batch of photos, stashed in the wrong folder since last year. I had been changing the water in the tank, with the assorted residents waiting in bowls and trays of water. A few worms hiding in empty barnacle shells g...

Shy cormorants
Far down the beach, a rock full of cormorants beckoned. 20 cormorants visible on this side of the rock. As I approached, although only two flew away, there seemed to be fewer birds on the rock. 13 cormorants. The tide had gone out by the time I arrived to a...

Side by side
Here's one of the new pink-tipped anemones, feeding and growing, standing tall. Anthopleura elegantissima And, right next to it, one of the Leafy Hornmouth snails: Ceratostoma foliatum , with the Warty tunicate behind it. I love the contrasting textures, th...

Look out below!
I've been on the road all day, highways and byways and trails in the bush, to lakes and bays and piles of rock. Rock face beside McCreight Lake "Watch for fallen rock," a sign said. Nervous-making. More photos later. For now, bed.

Tarry confusion
Just below the upper tidal limit, the rocks often are slippery, covered with a blackish, tarry, oily-looking crust, treacherous to step on, unappealing to touch. It's worth stopping to look at it, though: it had scientists stumped for years, not knowing wha...

Smile!
Oysters do. Toothy, clownish smile. Oysters are filter feeders. They "inhale" water, pumping it over their short tentacles and their gills, trapping small particles and swimmers in mucus, which they pass on to the mouth. The "teeth" in this photo are tentac...

Cave dwellers
The morning brought a faint hint of sunshine, a promise of more. I loaded the camera, grabbed my coat, and hit the road. By the time I'd run a couple of errands, it was raining, but not too hard. I drove down to the shore to look at the water from the shelt...
