Stanley Park Falls

August 30, 2012
During my day long visit to Stanley Park, one of the largest urban parks in Canada, I came across a tiny waterfall.  This waterfall is a small 2 meter drop into a man made pond.  Despite the waterfall being man made as well, it is still a beauty to behold.  In a short one kilometer proximity I ran into a family of raccoons, a coupling of ducks and a large family of Canadian Geese.  This leads me to believe that this waterfall, as unnatural as it is, helps support the wildlife of the park, as they in turn do to it.

I couldn't help myself on my vacation to BC, I needed to capture at least one waterfall from the roadside.  The luxury that is British Columbia, of having a much more hill and mountain terrain, which in turn brings more opportunities for waterfalls.  When traveling the main highways I would recognize a great deal of waterfalls.  Even simply when passing a car or turning in another lane I would recognize a waterfall in my blind spot.  After about the 10 or 11th time of bypassing waterfalls I decided it was time to get out and capture this magnificent one.

Overlander Falls

My journey to the Rockies following the ominous Friday the 13th, would take me to Mount Robson Provincial Park in British Colombia. This isn't technically a waterfall in Alberta, however I felt that this should still be shared with everyone.

About Me

My name is Mat Quigley and I'm a self taught photographer. I've learned most of my knowledge in photography, simply by experimenting. After spending a few years following Nick Guitard and his website, I decided to start something of my own, in my adopted province. Yup, I'm an Easterner (the real East ... beyond Ontario). I loved nature from the beginning, and in University I started to photograph it. Thanks to Nick I've been introduced to Waterfalling, which combines adventure with photography... two things I really enjoy. Thanks Nick!
