Gulf Islands in True Fish Eye

Gulf Islands in True Fish Eye

Upon purchasing a full frame camera, I finally am able to capture the full circle of my fish-eye lens. This particular shot was taken on the ferry between Tsawassen and Swartz Bay (in Sidney, British Columbia which is the terminal closest Victoria, British Columbia). The Gulf Islands of British Columbia are visible in this image, although there are quite a few among the Southern Gulf Islands and I don’t know them as well as I wish I did. They are simply the mass of islands in between the mainland of British Columbia and Vancouver Island and the divide between Northern and Southern seems to be Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island.

My estimation is that Saturna is one of the islands pictured here, but I’m not sure if the other two are North and South Pender or Mayne and Galiano.

In either case, I hope you are enjoying your Tuesday, no matter which land mass you are on!

Edinburgh

Edinburgh, Scotland has one of the most amazing landscapes one can hope for in such a sizable city. From the hills and mountains to the ocean to the north. Every time I was on any sort of hill or on top of a tall building, I wanted to check out the skyline and bask in it’s beauty. The shot below was taken on top of Camera Obsura, which is just next to the entrance of Edinburgh Castle. Being in the UK, it’s not surprising that the majority of the time I was in the city, clouds covered the sky, but I like the mood it adds in this shot.

British Columbia

This photograph was taken in December, 2011. During this time, I was dating a guy who lives on Vancouver Island, so I would often take the ferry between Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver and Nanaimo. The beautiful masses of land along the trip always fascinated me, so I thought I’d take a self-portrait with them. I’m super bundled, as the whipping winds on the open water can be treacherous in December.

I’m playing a bit of catch-up today, doing a bunch of posts instead of skipping more days. I seriously need to start post-dating! Just in case, I don’t get that set up before I leave, I am going to be in Las Vegas from May 21-25 and immediate when I return, I’m heading to Sasquatch Music Festival in central Washington from May 25-29 so if you don’t hear from me in a while, it’s only because I will return with fabulous new pictures! Just in case that happens, since it will encompass the last 7 days of the month, feel free to let me know whenever you’s like which of the following you would like to have as the theme for June:

– Spot The Clock

– Friends Made Along My Travels!

– Live Music Abroad

The Sunshine Coast

Today we visit an island off the coast of British Columbia called the Sunshine Coast. In this post, I want to highlight the coast of the island and the wilderness in the area, which is a part of what this area of the world is known for, as well as being a reason I love it so much!

In some posts, you’ll find a long story, but today, I’ll let the photographs speak for me.

All the above images were taken on the Sunshine Coast, From Gibsons, to Seaschelt, to Pender Harbour.

Here is the photograph of the day, taken in late July of 2010 in Pender Harbour, British Columbia.

And special thanks to Andrew Petcher (apetcher.wordpress.com/) for being the only one to vote on first poll, leading to pictures of bridges in fish-eye for the next week! Watch out for next month’s poll to get your say on what the theme for the first week of April will be!
