October Flowers & Mushrooms

Today, when I took the dogs for a walk I decided to bring my camera along. I haven’t had very much opportunities to use it recently and needed to get my photo fix in somehow. We have had a very mild fall in Vancouver and there are still plenty of flowers in the neighbourhood. I also came across some mushrooms, and even a few critters. My route with the dogs The flowers, I can’t believe we still have this many at the end of October!   Some mushrooms   These flowers are still growing in my yard.  Maybe this global warming thing isn’t so bad ;)   Some of the...

Canada Day Fireworks At Canada Place

I haven’t had time to process my photos from last night and given my backlog it may take some time :) I did want to get a few posted though, for those that missed the festivities at Canada Place.  These shots are taken from Waterfront Centre with the Vancouver Convention Centre on the left and Canada Place on the right.  Before the fireworks started, I managed to get a couple of short Hyperlapse videos of the crowd. This was my vantage point, couldn’t ask for better (iPhone panorama). A few photos from the evening, I’ll try to get some better edits and more photos up soon.  ...

Slow Road to Squamish: Long Exposures on the ...

A couple of weeks ago my friend Eli and I did a photohunting trip from Vancouver to Squamish.  The goal was to capture some long exposure shots along the way, below are some of the results.  Eli’s Gitzo tripod was conveniently lost by WestJet, and a loaner fell through at the last minute.  A stop at the Salvation Army saved the day though as he was able to pick up a “pro quality” tripod for $9!       First stop was the Lions Gate Bridge.  Not a great day for long exposures as it was mostly clear skies.  We gave it a shot though.   A shot with my iPhone 5S first. The resulting long exposure shot with my...

Cypress Mountain Snowshoeing

On the first day of spring, I had the chance to hit the snowshoe trails at Cypress Mountain.  Despite some initial clouds and light snow, it turned out to be a beautiful day on the mountain.  Here are a few photos from the day, apologies for the lack of information but I don’t have a lot of time for a write up :)           Fondue time at Hollyburn Lodge.  Food was great and our guides made the day!               On the way down the mountain, we stopped the lookout and were treated to a beautiful...

Vancouver May Flowers

Apparently the May long weekend is a busy time for gardening in Vancouver.  Our tulips have already come and gone, but there is always something in bloom.  I took a few shots while my wife was busy in the garden.  Nikon D800 with a 105mm f/2.8 VR Micro...
