Photographer’s Road Trips

Photography Spot BC

Scenic7 is not called ‘scenic’ for nothing. So grab your camera and check out some of the scenery that gave us our name.

  1. Stave Dam Forest Interpretive Trail (Mission) – boardwalks and old growth forest lead you to a vantage point that gives you an eagle eye view which on a clear day goes as far as Vancouver Island. Giving you serious selfie bragging rights.
  2. Westminster Abbey Viewpoint (Mission) – follow a short and serene trail to a viewpoint that leads you across the Fraser Valley – a great place to get the best background shots.
  3. Kanaka Creek (Maple Ridge) – Waterfalls, sandstone cliffs, wild salmon and more. Kanaka Creek provides the perfect backdrop of all your landscape and wildlife photography.
  4. Colony Farm Regional Park (Coquitlam) – nearly 200 species of birds have been observed (this is approximately 40 per cent of the bird species found in BC). The park is home to more than 400 hectares of grasslands, waterways and marshes crisscrossed by flat, wide trails. Search for the large colony of nesting great blue herons, purple martins, the elusive lazuli bunting and dozens of other species of birds and waterfowl. Spectacular sunrises and sunsets cap off this gem of a park.
