   This beach scene from the Short’s Point area of Fintry Provincial Park would have been rather mundane if someone hadn’t left their catamaran sailboat on the shore for me to photograph. I spent some time walking along the beach at Fintry looking for compositions but didn’t walk all of it – the Fintry beach is 2km long!

   As I pointed out in my previous Okanagan beach post, I am not much of a beach goer. However, last year while at Ellison Provincial Park I photographed Otter Bay Beach during a sunny spring day. On my trip this year I went back to this location, but the conditions were not quite right for photography, unfortunately. I will probably be back to try again this fall or in spring 2014.

Bromley Rock Provincial Park in Spring

Bromley Rock Provincial Park at fairly high water. Glad I did not try to photograph it in the summer when the water is low and it is crawling with people in brightly coloured float tubes and boats. The river here is the Similkameen River.
