A small gallery of images from the 2020 fall season. The photographs are from across Western Canada and each page includes the story behind the image. Every thumbnail is clickable and opens to a full-page view of the photo.


Welcome to my 2020 fall/winter season gallery. If I can describe 2020 in one word, it would be life-altering (perhaps that’s two)There would be few who could argue that 2020 hasn’t brought them a unique challenge. With the culmination of demanding worldwide phenomenon, most individuals have had to re-evaluate what is most important. Perhaps you are one of those people.

You may be wondering what all of this has to do with a small gallery of a few photos. This year has brought some unique challenges to my own life. I’d be lying if I said the pandemic and social unrest has been as challenging for me as it has for others. In context, 2020 was much easier for me than others. But, it has caused me to go back and re-evaluate my priorities. When I did that, I found that some of the things I was trusting in didn’t bring the security and peace I needed.  

That’s the reason for this gallery of images. I wanted to assemble a small gallery of images that could speak louder than a single image, to the reason I spent hundreds of hours this fall and winter hiking and driving to photograph these fleeting moments. The reason is simple: to bear witness to the splendour and majesty of the created world. To share with you a small sense of the grandeur and the unwavering strength of the Creator. Especially in this life-altering year, we all need a sense of peace greater than any other can give.

I hope you love this small set of photographs, and I pray that they speak to you about what in this world is lasting, where we can lay down our challenges and anxiety, and who the majesty and stability of nature point to. Enjoy.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4: 6-7
