As a passionate photographer with a deep love for the natural world, I strive to convey the beauty and majesty of fall foliage with every image we capture. Through my lens, I invite you to experience the crisp mountain air, the gentle rustle of leaves, and the warm embrace of autumn sunlight as you immerse yourself in stunning fall landscapes.
Fall colors in British Columbia, can be hard to find. A large portion of the Province is covered in evergreen trees that never change color. But one you locate the deciduous trees, its as if a whole new world has opened up. My images below are taking mainly around Vancouver Island. A local favorite is the Japanese Garden at Butchart Gardens. Also, if you’re in town, check out Hatley Castle and Gardens, UVIC Finnerty Gardens, and Mystic Vale.
A few images are from a photo and hiking trip we took at the end of September to Kananaskis Country in Alberta to participate in larch madness. The journey to view the larch trees as their needles turned yellow did not disappoint. The hikes to get up into the alpine to view the best specimens were difficult due to the altitude. If you’re planning on viewing them next year, let me know, I have a list of hikes and can provide you with some guidance.
From the towering aspen groves of the Rocky Mountains to the golden valleys of the San Juan Range, my collection of fall photographs also celebrates the kaleidoscope of colors that blanket Colorado’s terrain. Vibrant reds, glowing oranges, and rich yellows dance harmoniously against a backdrop of evergreen forests and snow-capped peaks, creating a visual symphony that is both captivating and unforgettable.
Join me on this visual journey through the West Coast’s fall foliage, where every photograph tells a story of change, renewal, and the timeless beauty of nature.
