Stalwart Sentinel by Ubhejane
Stalwart Sentinel
Herons are often overlooked when scanning the shoers of BC - they blend in perfectly with the grey pebble beaches and they stand stock still surveying the area. Occasionally if you get too close they'll let you know how annoyed they get and fly off in a huff. Beautiful birds.

Sooke Potholes by Ubhejane
Sooke Potholes
Just off the road into Sooke a stunning Radox-advert inspired vista. The cliff next to where I was standing made me cautious of an impending puma strike - you walk with eyes looking both ways in the forest here!

Buzz by Ubhejane
Buzz
Few animals are as delightfully fascinating as the hummingbird - tiny almost insect-sized creatures that make a lot of noise and zip around coastal British Columbia with extreme precision. Stupendously difficult to photograph if I may say so myself!

How things have changed since my last post! And in a good way - having completed the brutal board conversion exams I am now fully licensed to practice in Canada and the US. Visas are on their way and I'm looking at a few jobs around coastal BC. Outrageously exciting but also phenomenally stressful at the moment!

Artistic projects have been sporadic as a result and mostly seem to focus on photography. We haven't been away as much to new and exotic destinations recently but we did manage to squeeze in a delightful trip to Sicily (eating capital of the Universe), see some erupting volcanos (as evidenced in the gallery), as well as an unexpected jaunt to Las Vegas for part of the conversion exams. Once through them I have to say there are few places as good as Vegas for a post exam celebration!

It'll be strange to leave the UK - not least the family will be further away - but the world is just too interesting to live it all in one small place. And what is life without a new challenge?

Also I am currently building a tracklist with a folk song from every country in the world (plus some autonomous regions with distinctive music such as Hawai'i, Sapmi and Puerto Rico) - this is an awesome adventure and provides some upbeat cultural blending at a time when the world seems determined to be trying to raise barriers against one another again.
