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.

Late in the afternoon today just before sunset someone brought the colour of the clouds to my attention and had also asked if I had a camera. Well, I went outside with my little HP digital camera and took a couple of photos but the sun was setting fast, so the scene was changing quickly. Since this camera only has 6.2 megapixels, it would have been better using my Sony DSLR at 10.2 megapixels but it was back at home. Enjoy these photos nonetheless with the winter olympic village in the background, the setting sun behind that complex! - Volker
