We’d like to introduce you to the newest member of the Toad Hollow Photography team today, “Bruce”.  Who’s Bruce, you may very well ask?  Bruce is a DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone we recently acquired, giving us the ability to capture shots from a fresh, new perspective!  None of this would be possible without a […]

I really just can’t help it, I find rust to be visually delicious.  It’s got texture, it’s got character, it’s got years of stories hidden under that rich patina, stories that often remain secret and locked away forever.  When researching our trips up to Telegraph Cove at the northern end of Vancouver Island, it was […]

It’s not often at all that we come across a car that I’ve never heard of or seen before.  Every once in awhile, however, it does happen.  Such is the case with our encounter of a 1916 Franklin car we found one hot summers day as we were out enjoying the weather and landscapes of […]

The hands of time relentlessly tick forward, constantly turning the present into the past and creating history.  Sometimes this history is profound, and sometimes it is mundane.  Sometimes it lives in a place that was very remote, meaning it now lives in the minds and memories of only a few.  Jordan River is one such […]

It was the car show to end all car shows, the car show of a lifetime.  It was much more than we expected, and we expected an awful lot.  This year’s show was hosted at the brand new, state of the art facility, the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit, a world class track with world class […]

It has been five years since last we featured the incredible Kinsol Trestle here at The Hollow, and quite honestly I can’t think why.  This massive wood structure forms a very important part of our history, as is evidenced by the cost and effort the community has gone through to completely restore it.  At one […]

Enchantment comes in many forms, it can be found in the mundane and it can be found in the magical.  There is a spot on Vancouver Island called Fairy Lake, just outside of Port Renfrew on the west coast that has such magic.  In it is a tree unlike any other I have ever seen, […]

As a photographer, every once in a while you see something that catches your eye.  You hope to return later with time permitting to shoot it, and sometimes Father Time is helpful in this regard, and other times when you return the item or subject is gone.  This is particularly true when it comes to […]

We awoke in Telegraph Cove very early in the morning, anticipating what lay ahead for us.  This day had been in the plans for months on end, and in some ways it felt strange to find ourselves readying for the adventure that was about to unfold.  We knew that we would be moved beyond our […]

Ah, the smell of the ocean breezes, the sounds of lapping waves against the shores as gulls cry in the distance…  sights and sounds that bring an instant sense of tranquility and peace to all.  It’s truly hard to beat the feeling you get while visiting the shore and experiencing all the ambience it has […]
