Highway rock-cut ice wall—I bought my first 35mm SLR camera in the year that I was living in Port Hardy, near the northern tip of Vancouver Island ('83-'84). Because there was little to do in town, I would explore the sights and backroads of the northern island on the weekends when the logging roads were open to the public, so photography was a complementary hobby. With the very wet weather of the north island, highway rock-cuts are constantly seeping, so when the winters turn cold, these rock faces freeze into fantastic, glistening walls of icicles.
