What a year! 2016 will be not easily be forgotten, especially with American politics. And the craziness is not over yet! Anyway, don’t worry, there aren’t any photos of President Trump in this post. This is a selection of my photos posted to social media in December.

 

A snowy scene… and a frosty one too. Facing Mount Baker from along the Mount Seymour trail above North Vancouver, Canada.

About Randall St. Germain

Randall St. Germain, author of Camino de Santiago In 20 Days, is a middle-aged Canadian Boy who is passionate about nature, photography, hiking, music, and self-improvement. After the death of his mother, he chose to walk the famous pilgrimage, the Camino de Santiago, across the north of Spain, despite knowing little about it. He certainly didn’t plan to write a book until the latter days of his Camino. Similar to walking the Camino, writing and publishing a book was a learning experience. It was also very rewarding, and part of his ongoing journey. Please join him as he takes you along on his journey in Camino de Santiago In 20 Days, and on his blog Camino My Way.

As November arrived to Vancouver, Canada, so did the wet weather as it rained for most of the days. Luckily, we had a little sunshine and it’s needed sometimes to brighten one’s spirits between the periods of gloomy weather. If your spirit’s need brightening, there is a lot of brightness here. This is a selection of my photos from Spring, Summer, and Autumn posted to social media in November.

I love Summer but don’t enjoy the heat. Usually July is the warmest month in Vancouver but this year was very unsettled, rainy and cool. Good thing there were pleasant days in between the not-so-pleasant ones and I could get outdoors with my camera. These are my photos of the month posted to social media in July.

Here’s some Summer brightness from early July…

Well, I would like to blame the beautiful Summer weather for the lateness of this post but to be honest, there were many gray and rainy days in Vancouver during early July. Like most months of Summer, July just breezed by, and we are now facing August. I won’t make excuses for my tardiness, but will just present you with a selection of my photos and videos posted to social media during June.

 

The rose arbor was just beautiful when I visited the Centennial Rose Garden on Burnaby Mountain in Burnaby, Canada on a sunny Sunday in June.
