Been awhile!

Well it's been a while since I've posted anything on the blog so I thought it was time. I have been busy with school, work and life in general but here goes. My youngest boy and I headed up the Skeena River to see the wildlife in and along the shore feasting on an oily little fish called an Oolican that make the migration this time every year......Sea lions, Harbour Seals, Eagles, Gulls, Ravens and anything that can catch and feed on the little fish will fill their bellies. I manged to snap a few photos of the wildlife but wasn't happy with the results so I turned my attention on a West bound coal train of 117 cars headed to Prince Ruperts Ridley Terminals. I managed a couple of shot of 2812 and 2820 and did a little processing in photoshop so here are the results. I'll try and get out a little more often but access to the waterfront and Ridley Island have been cutoff to the public due to projects being developed on the coast.

Cheers, Scott
