I was pleased to find out that my image Garibaldi Springs was selected by BC Magazine as their top nature image this year.  You can check out this image in the September/October issue of the magazine.

This image was taken using film, so lots of old school details below.

The location was north of Squamish off the Sea to Sky. I was travelling up to Whistler, April 2009, to work on a book project, Whistler: An Outdoor Paradise, and was just exploring on the drive up.  The weather was off and on, but when I got to this location it was actually raining fairly hard.  However, the soft light was incredible; producing all the saturated colors in the image.  The combination of the two streams converging and the saturated colors are what caught my eye.



This image was taken in Naples, Florida and was nominated for last years Photography Masters Cup.
