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!

Sweet 16 in Seattle

Sweet 16 in Seattle

Forever a free spirit, my parents asked me what I wanted to do for my 16th birthday and my response was to go to Seattle instead of having a party. With a little bit of convincing, I even got them to take me all the way to Aberdeen, Washington, the hometown of Kurt Cobain, singer of 90’s grunge band, Nirvana.

A woman never reveals her age, and although I usually think that’s bogus, you can use your imagination this time to figure out the year this photograph was taken, and with what camera, although it is indeed a digital photograph.

With the stunning North-West clouds being accented by the sunset on that February evening, I captured the skyline (cityscape? I don’t actually know the difference) with the infamous protruding Space Needle being the prominent point of interest. I believe we were stuck in traffic (typical of Seattle) on the highway and I took this through the window of my parent’s car.

Las Vegas

A last minute photograph taken just before we headed to the airport to return north seems to be my favourite, or definitely close to it, from my trip to Nevada. Unfortunately, I lost a good majority of the pictures through a technical error on my computer, but I’m working to see what I can recover.

The photograph in question was of a sunrise in Las Vegas on a late Spring morning.

Washington State

Hello again, friends! I have returned to the internet, as well as North Vancouver! Time for some new pictures, right? That was the point of my trips to Las Vegas and central Washington State!

Being that the second half of my trip was photographing for “work” (can you really call THAT much fun “work”?) for http://www.concertaddicts.ca, I have begun to tackle the massive photo-editing mission in front of me from the middle, to the end, then back to the beginning until I finish back at the middle. If you’re still with me after that one, here’s my first photograph on my way to central Washington.

This was taken at 8:25pm on May 25, 2012. Me and my partner in crime throughout the duration of Sasquatch! Music Festival were headed the Gorge Amphitheater in George, Washington and here we were about halfway there on our drive from Vancouver, British Columbia, so likely just a few miles outside of Seattle. I love that you can spy the word “Travel” along the bottom and the beautiful sunset of this gorgeous late spring evening took my breath away. At a nearby gas station, the attendant didn’t seem quite as impressed with the sky, as he told me that later in the summer, the colours appear much more vibrant.

Stranraer, Scotland

As you may have noticed, I usually don’t include the country in my title, but in this case, it seemed to fit. While traveling, there’s a lot of passing through. Stranraer, Scotand is a town in the southwest of Scotland, right on the coast. I briefly went by the city on my way from Belfast, Ireland to Glasgow, Scotland. There is a ferry, called the Stena Line, which transports passengers from Belfast to Stranraer and from there, I caught a bus to Glasgow. I happened to arrive just in time for a gorgeous sunset, and what with the beautiful weather here at home these days, I’m all about a gorgeous sky!
