Banff, Sunsets, Dahlias and More, Photos of the Week, September 26th

October 6, 2015 — 2 Comments

My highlight for the week was not a walk or a hike, but attending the Jason Aldean, Cole Swindell, and Tyler Farr concert in Vancouver, and sitting close to the stage. I took some cool video but better not post any here so there are no copyright issues. Instead, please enjoy my photos posted to social media in the past week.


Hello pinkish dahlia… 😄
not sure what kind you are but I wish I knew. Taken recently in someone’s front yard in Vancouver, Canada.

For World Rivers Day, here is the very scenic Bow River in Banff National Park with majestic Castle Mountain in the background. Taken in August from one of my favourite spots near Castle Junction between Banff and Lake Louise, Alberta.

Hello lilies 😄
Not sure where I took this photo of you but it was either in Queen Elizabeth Park or VanDusen Garden, this past Summer!

Double Touch tulips and more…
This garden was isolated but once I found it, I visited many times. Earlier this year at VanDusen Botanical Garden.
