Wildlife in focus

Exhibit at reading Room Cafe

Brian Rundle is new to Sooke and he likes it here because of what most of us already know. The weather is good and it is affordable.Rundle is a wildlife photographer of some note. He’s had photographs published in Canadian Geographic and on the PBS children’s show Kratt’s Creatures.From March 1 onward, Rundle will have some of his photographs on display at the Reading Room Cafe in Evergreen Centre.He’s been poking around the region searching for wildlife shots and scenics. He comes from Ontario and worked for GM for 30 years before heading west. He wanted milder winters, earlier springs and pleasant summers and Sooke seemed to fit the bill. “I’ve not seen a lot of wildlife yet,” he said. He is particularly interested in the eagles but they are a little scarcer than he thought they might be at this time of the year. He enjoys the scenery as it is more diverse than the Ontario he was used to. He said the mountains and the oceans are appealing and when he goes kayaking he enjoys the curious seals that pop up  beside him.On the Canadian Geographic site he has more than a 100 images. Many of them were of birds in nests captured on film when he used aluminum towers over 45 feet in height. Rundle has had exhibits of his work in Ontario and this is the first in B.C.
