Where the Eagle Soars
Over British Columbia's IslandsBook - 1994
The islands of Canada's west coast are the possessors of secrets. Anyone who has hiked Vancouver Island's remote West Coast Trail, explored by sea the intricate, majestic coves and beaches of the Gulf Islands, or stood in the great forests of the Queen Charlotte Islands, will attest to their mystery and sublime beauty.British Columbia's islands are a rover's paradise, with the Pacific winds bringing continual change. Rich with colour and teeming with life, these islands offer spectacular mountain ranges skirted by dense, old-growth forest, pristine beaches that seem to go on forever, amazing congregations of wildlife, and some of the most magnificent views to be found anywhere.Residents of the islands know that light-manifested in countless ways-is the key to this unique region of Canada. Light, and pattern, are the essence of the aerial photographer's art. They are also Russ Heinl's hallmarks. Armed with an artist's keen eye for detail and composition and a master photographer's sense of colour and precision, Heinl has produced aerial photographs of B.C.'s islands that will provide a treasure of impressions for visitors who want to take the magic home with them. Anyone who has travelled the coast, or gone island-hopping will discover a unique view of this spectacular region.This large-format volume will allow readers to soar over the Queen Charlotte Islands down to Victoria, through a stunning series of full-colour photographs, beautifully reproduced in numerous double-page spreads and full-page bleeds.
