Sunsets, Winter Scenes and Waiting for Spring

April 8, 2018 — Leave a comment

Just when I thought Spring was here, we had the heaviest snowfall of the season on the West Coast of Canada. With the snow and rain, I didn’t get out much in February. You’ll see some Winter photos here but I also look back to trips in Summer and Autumn. Of course, I look ahead to Springtime too. This is a selection of photos posted to my social media in February.


A beautiful Winter’s sunset from the pier and beach in White Rock, Canada.



A look back to Autumn and my visit to Emerald Lake in Yoho National Park, Canada.


Facing an Autumn shower…
We didn’t run but enjoyed this scene in Banff National Park, Canada. Taken above the Bow River between Banff and Canmore.


Frosty but pretty scenes on Mount Seymour, above North Vancouver, Canada.




From Springtime, just some of the many beautiful gardens at RoozenGaarde, part of the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in Washington State, USA.






From the fields of Tulip Town, also part of the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.


From my last Summer road trip to Jasper National Park, Canada, a majestic Elk resting on the side of Highway 16.




A peaceful scene taken in Autumn along Highway 5A, between Kamloops and Merritt, Canada.



Is it Winter or early Spring? 🙂
