Shortly after I came out to British Columbia in early 2006 I had a case of severely high blood pressure. It wouldn't have been fair to an employer for me to work for them until I got my health situation sorted out. I was on medications to lower the blood pressure and it took until early 2007 to find the cause. I finally went to a naturopath who found that a microscopic parasite was the cause for all this.

While getting my health in order, I took up blogging to share my photography. This way I wasn't wasting time and others got to enjoy the photos, not just me and those close to me.

In May of this year I had a mini-stroke cause again by severely high blood pressure. I may end up gong to the naturopath again since the specialist and other MDs can't seem to find the cause. This has only been a problem out here. Before that in Ontario, the blood pressure was only marginally high, not severely high like in BC.

Knowledge is good because being forewarned is forearmed!

All that said, enjoy this blog and all the photos I share with you.

A winter sunset on Burnaby Mountain

Over the past six months or so I've been up on Burnaby Mountain several times. The mountain is located just east of where I currently live in north Burnaby. There is a fantastic view all seasons of the year and especially after sunset when the stars and the city lights are seen in all their brilliance. The scene above is of a sunset looking west toward Vancouver. The Ainu scuptures are in the foreground. I hope to have a post on the scultures soon as time permits. In the meantime, enjoy this image. - Volker
