March 8, 2018 — Leave a comment

It’s already March and I’m very late with this post. I’ll get straight to it. This is a selection of my photos posted to Social media in December.


A favourite drive 🙂
From my trip earlier in the Autumn to the Canadian Rockies, this is Cathedral Mountain from the Yoho Valley Road in Yoho National Park.


These Winter campers are far more adventurous than I am. Taken at Brockton Point on Mount Seymour above North Vancouver, Canada.



Snapdragons and Mount Rundle…
I was surprised to see these flowers blooming so late in the season. Taken in early October at Cascade Gardens in Banff National Park, Canada.





One of my favourite views 🙂
The Black Tusk from Panorama Ridge in Garibaldi Provincial Park, last Summer.



Bright colours from late Summer and dahlia Gloriosa at Ferncliff Gardens in Mission, Canada.


Here’s a scene from early Autumn featuring this cactus dahlia at the Butchart Gardens near Victoria, Canada.


More snowy scenes on Mount Seymour.




I was lucky to capture this…
Heron with a great catch outside the Stanley Park Nature House in Vancouver.


From the edge of Iceberg Lake, near Whistler, Canada…
an iceberg. Taken in late Summer.



Loving the liatris… Monarch butterfly in Summer at Krause Berry Farms in Langley, Canada.



I was up early for this scene…
Sunrise from a meadow along the Bow Valley Parkway between Castle Junction and Banff in Banff National Park.



Facing Mount Rundle and Sulphur Mountain from the edge of Vermillion Lakes in Banff.



From my Summer trip to the Kootenays of British Columbia, this is the old firehall in the ghost town of Sandon.



Hello ducklings 🙂
Taken in Springtime at VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver.



My Christmas cactus, a special gift from my late mother 🙂



A look back to Summer in the rose garden of Queen Elizabeth Park.



One of the amazing views from early Autumn at the Natural Bridge in Yoho National Park.


A view from Mount Seymour.



Beautiful sunset over Vancouver. Taken from my perch above Guildford in Surrey.


On top of the World… well, sort of…
Looking toward the first bump of Panorama Ridge with the Tantalus Mountains in the background. Last Summer in Garibaldi Provincial Park.



A peaceful spot from earlier in the Autumn along the Chehalis River, east of Vancouver.



Colours of Autumn…
featuring these dahlias at the Butchart Gardens near Victoria, Canada.


A view of Vancouver from Dog Mountain.



Dahlia Weston Spanish Dancer at Ferncliff Gardens.



I’m not sure which dahlia this is but I love the colours…
Taken at Ferncliff Gardens.



From a recent visit to White Rock, Canada, the famous pier at sunset.


Snowy views from my balcony.




Visiting the Hyatt Hotel in Vancouver and Gingerbread Lane. This is the closest I got to Santa Claus this year.
