Sechelt Farmers & Artisans Market – Part 2

I was back at the Sechelt Market today, this time to focus on some of our talented artisans. The Sunshine Coast has one of the highest per-capita populations of artists in Canada, and several of them are set up every Saturday at the Market.

Peggy Collins is a very talented Nature Photographer and has been an inspirational source for me for a number of years.  This is a beautifully composed photo of a fiddlehead fern reaching toward the sunlight.

Peggy has created a number entertaining photos with her friend Squiggy the Squirrel. This particular one has become one of her signature images and was taken two summers ago. When I spoke with her today, she mentioned that she has a new squirrel who she said “seems very eager to please.” We’ll stay tuned to see what this creative photographer comes up with.

I have a very good understanding of the challenge of this picture of a Varied Thrush. They are one of the earlier birds in the season, but tend to stay hidden in the forest, where darker lighting isn’t always conducive for capturing a good picture. It’s too bad because they have beautiful markings and colouration.

Peggy reproduces her photography in a variety of formats, including very reasonably priced greeting cards. Follow this link to see more of her work.
