In 2002 I met a lady named Margaret Benson. Little did I know at the time that she would end up being such a huge part of my life! Back then I was coaching rowing and she needed a coach for The World Transplant Games. You see, Margaret has CF (cystic fibrosis) and when she was diagnosed with the disease as a teenager, her life expectancy was only about 25. Not Margaret. 10 years ago she got a new pair of lungs and for her 50th birthday she definitely celebrated as only Margaret can!
This week on Tuesday Rocky Mountaineer hosted their usual 800 passengers on the train with 40 very special people.... All of these people are organ recipients; the youngest was a baby when she received hers!! So, Margaret asked me to come down for the send off.
You can find the full photoset HERE; but here are a couple of images from the very early morning!
There is an art and science when it comes to taking pictures at night... and a bit of luck. Last night we went on a hunt for the Northern Lights that reportedly were going to appear over Vancouver. We never saw any but we did find a quiet beach on the shores of Howe Sound to take some great night shots. All of these we shot using the bulb setting on my Nikon with varying iso and f-stop settings. Super fun hanging out with 3 other photographers for this very late evening and trying some crazy stuff with lights!

Between Scuba Diving, Field Hockey 50th Anniversary and the Super Moon - I have spent HOURS at my computer processing pictures.... However, nothing beats the 1740 photos that I took last weekend at the bottom of Taylor Way in West Vancouver for the start of the Whistler GranFondo!

It is so very cool when you are diving and find something new... unfortunately things in the ocean tend to move around a lot! This past weekend we were out on the North Mooring Buoy at Bowyer Island in Howe Sound and I looked into a crack and found a new friend. (there was another one hiding) This is such an encouraging sign for the overall health of Howe Sound. Hopefully they are there the next time I am at the site!
