Rose Harbour Endings

The last day of my time aboard the Passing Cloud we ended up in the anchorage at Rose Harbour, on the north shore of Kunghit Island. This is located on the south side of Houston Stewart Channel which divides Moresby and Kunghit Islands. Rose Harbour (map link) was a whaling station during the last century and a large piece of…

Around Kunghit Island

  Near the end of my time aboard the Passing Cloud we circumnavigated Kunghit Island (map link) which is a large island at the very south end of Gwaii Haanas. This roll of film includes shots from Heater Harbour on the north-east side (map link) views of Hecate Strait to the east of Kunghit Island and an excursion on…

Around Juan Perez Sound

As you are seeing in recent posts, I made several visits to the Juan Perez Sound area this past summer while cruising aboard the Passing Cloud in Gwaii Haanas. This roll of film includes shots from De La Beche Inlet (map link) at the western edge of Juan Perez Sound, another visit to Hotspring Island (map link) which is…

South into Gwaii Haanas

    My summer Haida Gwaii trip aboard the Passing Cloud included several passes through the Juan Perez Sound area that lies at the center of the east coast of Gwaii Haanas. Over the past two decades I have spent many months in this area, walking the shores recording and testing archaeological sites. It is always a pleasure…

Cumshewa Inlet

  While on last summer’s Haida Gwaii trip aboard the Passing Cloud we had a layover between cruises and groups of passengers. The photos on this roll are taken on the trip down Cumshewa Inlet and mostly in Gordon Cove at the west end of the inlet 30km from Hecate Strait. It was very calm, with terrific light in the…

Windy Bay and Anna Inlet

      My summer Haida Gwaii trip aboard the Passing Cloud took me to Windy Bay and Anna Inlet a couple of times. This roll of film is shot mostly at Windy Bay with some in-transit time and in the anchorage at Anna Inlet. Hlk’yah GawGa (or Windy Bay) has a Watchman’s cabin, as do several…

Gwaii Haanas North

    My summer Haida Gwaii trip aboard the Passing Cloud continues with images from the northern end of Gwaii Haanas. Others in this series on 52Rolls can be seen with this link. You can also find many more images from this trip shot with digital cameras on my blog (here). None of the digital ones have such…

Into Gwaii Haanas

As I explained in my recent post Sandspit – Haida Gwaii I spent time working on a schooner in Haida Gwaii last summer. This roll of film documents the ride from Sandspit down to Gwaii Haanas in a De Havilland Beaver float plane, and then a few days of cruising aboard the Passing Cloud. See this link for…

Sandspit – Haida Gwaii

One of my trips this past summer was to Haida Gwaii (formerly the Queen Charlotte Islands). My trip took me to work for several weeks as an on-board expert on a cruise. The vessel was the Passing Cloud, a schooner that spends part of each year in the Gwaii Haanas national park at the south…

Haida Gwaii Alley

    This roll of film, my 45th this year, is the last from visits to Haida Gwaii. Once again it is shot in the Village of Masset, but this time on Neopan Acros. I walked into this alley behind the “Christ for First Nations” church (broken windows in the church suggest it’s not going over…

Haida Gwaii Canoe

  This roll of film for my 44th offering has a real mix of places and things on it and so it was hard to find a theme in the photos. It was in the camera in Victoria and when I took a trip to Nanaimo, as well as when I went to Haida Gwaii on my…

Haida Gwaii Townscape

    This roll of film concentrates on the Village of Masset and follows from my Haida Gwaii Seascapes and Haida Gwaii Landscapes posts taken on recent work trips to Haida Gwaii. I don’t usually stay in Masset but a couple of weeks ago I spent a week there. These are shots from around town, many of places where I…
