Living on the Sunshine Coast of BC, we are immensely privileged to be surrounded by so much natural beauty. As I continue to explore this beautiful part of BC in my kayak, 4×4 and motorcycle, I try and capture some of this incredible beauty through the lens of my camera. Although the images themselves may capture some of the visual beauty of the Coast, what is lost is the heart, soul and energy which permeates these beautiful wilderness settings. Psychologists tell us that time spent in the wilderness reduces stress, improves attention, improves our mood and of course there are the obvious physical benefits to getting out into nature. Time spent in the wilderness also reconnects us to our primordial and evolutionary past. So for many, excursions into the wilderness are also sacred experiences reminding us of our fundamental connection to all life on this planet. So put down that phone, shut off the television or computer and step into and experience the majestic beauty of the Sunshine Coast wilderness.
“Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” ~ John Muir
