Downtown Vancouver

Vancouver BC buildings in the downtown core Burrard and Georgia st. This image is an HDR of three images. The angle was wide so I corrected to straighten it up. The fog of that day created a great atmosphere but the traffic on the street was ruining the shot. So I blended the image with a vertical motion blur to remove the distraction of the street

Model: Kate Mazurok. MUA: Myranda Warren

Boundary Bay Dyke Trail

At one of the entrances of Boundary Bay Dyke Trail they have this metal sculpture. I got high enough to silhouette it against the sky. I added the God rays in PS.

Van Dusen Totem Pole II

The Rocks at the Olympic Oval

Purple Pine with Stars

Closeup of a pine tree branch with water dew drops left behind by a heavy fog. The water drops have reflections of the pine tree and have a jewel-like sun burstColor changed to purple.

Low to the Ground Road

Low angle view of road on sunset. Image shows the grit of the road right at the divisor yellow line

Garden Steps with Railing

Garden steps in one of the trails at Van Dusen Gardens. image focuses on four steps inviting the viewer to walk on them. There is a natural handrail made out of a tree trunk. The steps are made of stone and have a very low profile. the steps are surrounded by greenery

Water Droplet in Branch

Water droplet accumulated in branch after a heavy fog. The droplet reflects its surroundings. The sun light breaks through the fog and casts some rays on the branch and water droplet

Flower on Cool Blue

Tree trunk or log laying low formed a frame for a new flower growin next to the chopped log. the mist created a perfect background for the image. The sun light penetrated the mist or fog to produce a spotlight effect

Mount St. Helens

I was with my family visiting Mount St. Helens. I was amazed at the destructive power of the mountain's famous eruption of May 18, 1980. But more impressive was seeing how nature was rebuilding the environment around the destruction. I thought the shot exemplified nature's ability to rebuild itself. I liked how the log led my eyes to the mountain as if it was pointing out the culprit of such devastation while the new flowers next to it were the focal point of the shot.

Whistler Creek Bridge

Water Lily

Meditation Garden Entrance Sign

Into the Bird House

Flying Eagle

Playground on Mars

Photo taken on a foggy night. The background is a soccer field floded with fog. Changed the tone to a copper tone.

VanDusen Gardens Trees

VanDusen Gardens Trees. The trees had no leaves but the branches created a snow-fall-like of colours. I love the mood of the shot. I used a cartoon effect to make it more painterly-like

VanDusen Festival of Lights - Squid

PEI Lawn Chair

Eye of the Wind II

Kennington Cove Beach

This is a picture that I took in Kennington Cove Beach, Nova Scotia. The model is a 3D render

Water - Human's Power

A fine art take on how important drinking water is for our survival. It is our main power source

Spiked Speedwell?

Does anyone know the name of this plant. I took a picture of it at the Bloedel Floral Conservatory but forgot to get the name of the plant. It looks like a Spiked Speedwell. Can someone that knows verify this?

Valentine's Day 2015

This is the image that I created for Valentine's Day for my wife

Fantasy Moon I

This is a composition of three images that I took separately

Rick at Tower Beach

Went on a Meetup with a group of photographers to take pictures at Tower Beach in Vancouver, British Columbia. As I turned around I saw Rick taking a shot from the rock and took the shot. I usually don't take pictures of other photographers as it is a bit of a cliche but in this case I really liked the composition.

In Memory of the Victims in Paris Attacks

I wish to convey my sadness and empathy for the victims of the Paris attacks. We have you in our thoughts and prayers.

SFU Warped Hall

Took one of the Simon Fraser University's Halls and gave it a futuristic look

Mystical Forest

Mystical Sundial

Sundial from Van Dusen Gardens turned into a medieval mystical image. This sundial was in a plain garden, the pedestal was green and the sundial was a bit boring. So I decided to have some fun with it.

Fantasy Forest

My first Digital Art where I combine photography and 3D rendering
