Weaver Creek Spawning Channel

British Columbia's spectacular natural beauty, a celebration when the salmon come back home to spawn and start a new generation. Amazing colours and a spectacle of the natural cycle of life.  In the spirit of the First Nations of Canada in the preservation of everything that is nature. I was fortunate to bear witness to arrival of the salmon today, October 24, 2015. 
The Weaver Creek Spawning Channel. Recent returns to the system range from 1,000 to 100,000 adults. The channel is located between Mission and Agassiz, 12 kilometres north of the Lougheed Highway on Morris Valley Road.

Forest Fireflies - A digital art experiment

Digital art showing a fantasy forest using vivid water colours. The lights look like fireflies changing from white to bright yellow and a few random RGB colours in between. The digital simulation of the interacting fireflies was done using a programming language called processing.
