Tamihi Creek Revisited


After visiting Tamihi Creek back in the Spring I wanted to see what the location would be like during the winter, so I made my way out to Chilliwack one afternoon and stopped for a short visit. I was surprised to find that water levels were still somewhat high, at least for February. Due to a warmer than average winter here in Greater Vancouver there is very little snow in the local mountains, so I was expecting much lower water levels. Not that I am complaining, the water level makes for more interesting image making.

That's The Spot

Female Bufflehead
The best moments in life are the ones you expect the least, thus those are the moments that should be captured in photographs. Anyone who photographs wildlife comes to realize how dull the standard shot of any given creature becomes after a while, so capturing the moments that are less common become something to be strived for. In this case waiting for this female bufflehead to do something other than simply dive or swim was worth the wait.
