A unique website with its many photo galleries and informative text descriptions provides the visitor a one stop place to get a close glimpse of Canada and its history.
For Immediate Release
GARIBALDI HIGHLANDS, British Columbia/EWORLDWIRE/Nov. 30, 2005 ---
Bill McComish today announced the completion of his unique Canada website PhotosCanada.com.
McComish, along with his wife Sue, spent the past three years visiting all of Canada's provinces and the north. They travelled more than 100,000 km, captured over 15,000 high resolution images, and spent many weeks researching the description and history for the images - 60,000 words in all.
The journey to capture the desired images included hiking to far away rugged mountain peaks, climbing to cliff edges on the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, four-wheel driving over steep and narrow back roads and across the Artic Circle, white-water rafting and skiing in double black diamond terrain.
Many weeks were spent behind the computer to select the final cut of 900 images. These images include spectacular mountains, crystal blue alpine lakes, glaciers, icebergs, northern lights, wildlife (up close) and Canada's largest cities.
This photographic adventure had its challenges. McComish explains, "On many occasions the weather and light did not co-operate, even smoke from forest fires prevented capturing the images I wanted, and some images took a day or more to capture."
On his web site visitors will find selected images of all the Canadian provinces including the northern territories, major cities, popular tourist destinations, National Parks and some of the most spectacular places in Canada. His galleries also include native Canada, adventure and sports, limited editions and Canadian wildlife, with descriptive text and background information.
Many of these images have already been chosen for various promotional projects by architectural firms, graphic designers, newspapers, District of Squamish Chamber of Commerce, regional websites and the New Brunswick Nature Trust. Many have also been purchased from people around the world.
Originally from the emerald isle, McComish states, "Canada is everything I dreamed and envisioned growing up in Ireland. It is blessed with natural beauty, vast wilderness and wildlife plus many multi-cultural spirited cities where people come from all over the world to fulfill their dreams."
With a constant need to create, McComish also plans to publish a book with his selected images of Canada in the near future, and he looks forward to capturing images at the up-coming 2010 Vancouver/Whistler Winter Olympic Games.
