I'm not accredited to photograph at the Vancouver Winter Olympics but I thought that being a Canadian and in the spirit of winter that I would feature one of my Canadian winter landscape images every day during the course of Olympics from Feb 12 to the 28th, these images have been selected from collective body of work, all shot of course with large format camera gear.

My blog is at http://www.garynylander.blogspot.com

Also I have recently updated my website with images from 2009: http://www.garynylander.com

Best of luck to all athletes and countries at the Olympics !

Being from the Deep South (U.S.) I marvel at the beauty of the North and Northwest; it looks like an alien planet to me! You capture it beautifully.

Absolutely wonderful Photographs. I've been glued to the television watching the Olympics and recalling fondly our wonderful trip to BC.

Your sensitive choice of photographs and comments about the Olympics are very moving.

What would accreditation gotten you? It is obvious your images don't need it. The Olympics committees should have worried about more than that. Lovely, especially Lk Agnes.

Thanks very much for your comments, Thom, Brad, John, Jim and Vinny and yes Jim you are right ,with my landscape images the accreditation would be of no help, all those pictures are free for the taking !

Yeah, we will keep you Canadians away from all the facilities so you won't know which way to go ...

Knowing the weather in the UK, we will probably get snow for the 2012 games!
