What Does a Salmon Arm Look Like?

Shutter:1/0 sec
Camera:Canon EOS 7D

On a recent Western Canada road trip for work, I snapped this moody black and white in the city of Salmon Arm, British Columbia.  After a long day of driving over and through the Roger’s Pass and visiting schools from Golden to Salmon Arm, I was relieved to find myself at a lovely hotel right on the shores of Lake Shuswap just as a warm sun was setting behind the mountains and a bright harvest moon was rising in the night sky.  After the chill of the high mountain passes, it was wonderful to arrive in the BC interior and find 20+ celsius weather!  So I grabbed my camera and went for a long walk to stretch my legs along a boardwalk in front of my hotel.  It was a peaceful evening and I hope this shot captures “that peaceful, easy feeling.”

If you would like to see more snaps from my recent wild west adventure, please visit my photo website here.  If you would like to learn more about Salmon Arm, including the story around its relationship with a former Prime Minister and his infamous salute, please visit the ever informative Wikipedia here.

Enjoy the rest of your Halloween Sunday.
