Quiet Season in Quesnel

It’s “quiet season” in Quesnel right now.  Dead of winter, and we’re getting the coldest temperatures that we’ve had all winter so far.

I’ve been out shooting a little bit, but mostly indoors.  Some great still life pictures of flowers and whatnot, as well as some family pictures from some recent winter events here in Quesnel, like our Quesnel Winter Carnival.  It was a fantastic event, with free snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, pond skating, and some other fun events for the children.  The girls had a great time roasting bannock over an open fire, sculpting snow castles, painting snow with dye in spray bottles and jumping in a bouncy castle.

I had a great time talking with a couple fellow photographers about their passion – bird photography.  I got to play with some cool lenses that are outside my normal purview.  Really, a great day.  I have some great photographs from the day that I’ll be putting up as soon as I have them edited.
