Vancouver Aquarium : February 20

The first photo is not from my trip to the Vancouver Aquarium, but it was taken during the same weekend when my brother was in town.  We decided to visit the lookout at Cypress Mountain at sunset, and lucky for us it was a fairly clear evening.  This photo is taken looking south east, the sun is setting to the right of the frame and Vancouver is in the foreground.  Mount Baker (which is in the USA), is visible in the background.  The use of a zoom lens (@ 155mm) provides the compression in the scene.  I have used zoom lenses for a few landscape shots in the past (Mountains at 400mm) and they can certainly provide an interesting perspective....

Another visit to the Vancouver Aquarium

I have had a membership at the Vancouver Aquarium for the last few years and I like to visit often.  It’s a great place to just walk around and relax.  I almost always see something new and different.  I like to bring my camera, you never know what you will see. Don’t bug me, I’m crabby Best buds, Gus and Ollie, hyacinth...

A Trip to the Vancouver Aquarium

I visit the Vancouver Aquarium several times a year and always enjoy it.  They recently expanded and also have bioluminescence displays which were great to see.   A friend of mine stole (ok, borrowed) my favorite lens for my visits to the aquarium, the Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 Micro VR, so these are all shot with the Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8.  Since everything is hand held, the VR is actually quite useful. One of my favorite tanks showing the Pacific Sea Nettle.  I feel very relaxed after watching it for a while. A shrimp in the west coast exhibit. It was divers weekend (discount if you bring your cert card).  Lots of interesting info for divers....
