Black & White Sunday 13: Glenbow Ranch

I’ve shared photos from walks at Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park several times on the Soapbox (like here, here, and here, for example).  It’s definitely one of my favourite places to walk the dogs because it’s massive, close to our end of the city, a very interesting historic site, and picturesque with lots of variety for photo ops.

So without further adieu…

Black & White Sunday 7: Costa Rica Diving

Something a little different from the Soapbox this week after spending a week and 9 dives on the west coast of Costa Rica.

The Pacific coast diving doesn’t have the visibility of the Caribbean, but it’s still better than the mountain lakes here at home (and warmer!), and bodes well for trying out black and white.
