Continuing with my theme of shots around Hope, a few days ago we had a walk around some of the places in Hope that are within walking distance of our home. When we arrived in late summer we walked by Thacker Marsh and the Coquihalla River, and I knew back then that I would look forward to seeing these particular places change with the seasons. We’ve had snow on the ground for a few weeks now, and generally low temperatures have meant that it’s not yet disappeared and in fact has been added to at regular intervals! It’s quite unusual for this area, but because Hope is located on the edge of interior BC its weather can really go two ways; affected and tempered by the Pacific, or influenced by the same systems that affect the interior. For example at the moment we’re experiencing an ‘arctic outflow’ that brings cold temperatures from the interior of BC to the lower mainland and coastal areas.
So here are some shots around Thacker Marsh along the old Kettle Valley railway, and down by the partly frozen Coquihalla river. These are all shot on Kodak Portra 800 with my Pentax 67ii. Film processing by Canadian Film Lab.
