The Nature of Living Things (LAPC)

Above/featured: A warm summer afternoon on Grouse Mountain: North Vancouver, BC – 1 August 2016 (450D).

It’s a play on the title of a long-running documentary series on science and technology: “The Nature of Things” airs on Canada’s national broadcaster, the CBC. “Nature” can mean different things to different people, but I’ve three words in mind: flora, fauna, and mountains. Having begun photography as an active interest relatively late from 2005, it’s been a wondrous journey of non-stop discovery. Between 2007 and 2018, the following locations provided backdrops and venues to photographs about “nature.”

    An amazing collection, Henry. I’m astounded at your patience to capture all these creatures. And I had a hard time choosing my favorites. But the parrot, the sleeping fox and the tulips all call to me.

      Thank you, Patti, for your kind comments. It’s a rewarding challenge to photograph these beautiful creatures, which is helped in large part by my longish zoom-lens. I often get things wrong, but that’s why it’s a rewarding challenge. Thanks for letting me know what your favourites were!

      Hi and thanks again, Patti. Certainly, I fail more than I succeed, but perhaps I’m also simply too stubborn to give up on a series of pictures for an animal. 😅
