A quick stop at Top Bridge to visit the suspension bridge over the Englishman River near Parksville. The water was low so I took the side trail down to the river to look for some nice dead salmon that had yet to be eaten by a bear, bird or cougar. and of course to take a few pictures of the river and the bridge.
I had a bear bell and bear spray with me as this is borderline back county, and salmon are a tasty and important food source for bears and other animals that would likely want to eat me as well if I came between them and supper. What I did not have though was a polarizing filter.
Bright sun streaming through broken cloud onto water. Nasty, but I was there and got a few so-so shots despite the lack of the polarizer and a few other tricks that I should have had with me.
At least I did not get eaten or washed down the river…
