Hippie Lake

A couple of weeks ago we ventured just south of Whistler to a campsite near Hippie Lake.  The campsite was set right by the Cheakamus River amongst some amazingly tall trees.  It was a full moon which gave an amazing feeling as the glow shone through behind the trees.  It was an absolutely stunning night as you can tell by the shots below.  I also tried a new editing technique which I haven’t quite got dialed but I am working on it!

We arrived in time to attempt some ‘flowing river’ shots…

Before heading out for some night shots it was time to fire up the charcoal BBQ…

Then it was time for a wander to see what we could produce…

  1. Hi! I’m trying to find directions to Hippie Lake, only thing i’ve found online is that its in Brio, but i dont think thats correct… are you able to share? Thanks!

    1. Hi Izzy, is it too late? It’s down near the bungee bridge. About 300metres before the bridge is the campsite and the lake itself is just past the bridge a little way.
