New Photos: Great Bear Rainforest 2019

I’ve finally finished processing photos from my last tour of the year… which took place back in September. It’s been a bit hectic since then, but thankfully I was able to carve out some time amidst all the year-end projects.

So my Great Bear Rainforest trip images are now up in the photo archive. This is a special tour: a small group of clients, a nice boat with a fantastic captain and crew, and nine days on the water exploring one of the world’s most beautiful regions. And there’s some great wildlife as well. Check out the full gallery of 100 new photos in the archive. A short preview is below.
