Everybody enjoys the picturesque views in BC. Even Blue Heron here, who appears to be relaxing and taking in a view of Lost Lagoon from a seemingly perfect vantage point. Three Blue Herons ended up making an appearance that afternoon. I've never seen so many together at the same time.
Possible captions for this photo could be "Walking on Top of the World", "Jumping for Joy", "Celebrating Nature", "Up Upon High". What was actually being said at the time was more along the lines of, "Oh shoot! Ok, try it again. Ready? On the count of 3. One, two, THREE!"
You will see scenes like this if you go for a walk around the Seawall. I was wishing for more of a blue sky, but at least it wasn't raining, letting me have a bit more traction on this moss-covered ground.
I hate getting up early. Sunrise scenes like this though at Canada Place with a camera phone in hand make it worthwhile losing out on some sleep.
Every part of the world has its own version of a winter, and this is Vancouver's. It's been too warm for snow... imagine if all this rain had come down as frozen precipitation! If there's any farm animals living in this field, I hope they have flippers. Or at least pool noodles to float on.
These mountains are part of the Golden Ears Provincial Park north of Maple Ridge. I'm not sure if these peaks themselves compose Golden Ears, but they look striking and impressive enough to have been the source of the namesake. Then again, generally any mountain range around here is impressive enough to knock your socks off.
I was somewhat disappointed after I got home and watched this video I took of Okanagan Lake because I hadn't spent the time to take a nice photo. It was quite picturesque.
This dock in Peachland reflects a very serene scene. In summertime it's the exact opposite; laden with bodies, you'll barely be able to see the dock, or Okanagan Lake for that matter, because of the popularity among locals and tourists alike.
