fly to the sun

b047-36rev

driving along highway 5 from san diego to los angeles, i had the opportunity to veer off onto highway 1 and make a pit stop in newport beach for dinner. made my way to one of the beaches as the sun was setting – a nice end to a wonderful day in a beautiful part of the world!

a balancing act

A Balancing Act

it was on a beautiful, crisp winter day at belcarra regional park in the vancouver suburb of port moody that i came across this wonderful tree. backlit by the setting sun, it provided a beautiful silhouette against the sky. i composed the shot and called it a day.

it was not until i started editing the image some time later that i ‘saw’ a person arching his/her back struggling or juggling or indeed balancing a heavy load of something or other… hence, the title.

this photograph has elicited many a comment: everything from ‘it’s a pregnant woman’ to, dare i say, ‘i see the male form!’.

what do you see? 😉

sunshine coast sunset

Sunshine Coast Sunset

renowned for it’s spectacular scenery, the sunshine coast of british columbia is in effect sandwiched between the strait of georgia and the coast mountains. from british columbia’s lower mainland (greater vancouver area), it is usually accessed via ferry from west vancouver to langdale, bc. this was photographed in the tiny village of halfmoon bay on a chilly spring evening.

moonrise silhouette 1, 2 & 3

Moonrise Silhouette 1

Moonrise Silhouette 2

Moonrise Silhouette 3

in keeping with the previous lunar post, here is a series of moon shots from the diego martin valley in trinidad and tobago once again. i set up in the driveway, at the front of the house and waited for the moon to make its appearance, silhouetting the trees on the mountain. unlike the previous post, these images did not require too much editing – pretty well straight out of the camera.
