This is my one and only. That's why I was looking for suggestions. I would like to add some to my collection of photos.

Floe Lake, in Kootenay NP, is touted as being one of the best places in the Rockies, to view a sunrise. I have to agree

Well, I'll bite. Here are a few photos from some of the places I mentioned.


This was taken from Montague Harbour on Galiano Island, pointing towards Vancouver Island.


From Jericho beach during low tide. In general, I find the photo opportunities in this area are much greater when the tide is out.


Finally, Kits Beach.

Very nice, Nathan. What time of year was the one from Galiano?

Sigh. So many great places, so much rain. Maybe we ought to post some rain pics, too.

No sooner said than done!



The Galiano Island shot I think was taken around August.

Hey Nomad ! Know what you mean about the drive. I work across the street from you.You know the place with the big red trucks.There is a certain young R.C.M.P.member that keeps complaining because I bust his radar gun every time I work afternoon shift... Keep telling him I missed the runway <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
Been driving that road for ten years every day and never get tired of the sights.It does get a bit hairy in black ice though.

Nice pictures, Russ. A couple of them look like they are from the Shoreline walk in Port Moody. Is that correct?





This is a rainy night picture. I'm sure it will be easy to recognize the locale.

Oops. I'm still learning. I still haven't quite figured out how to crop the photos properly on the computer.

Donna ,Shoreline walk is just down the hill from me.Been there fairly often but always leave the camera at home. I think it would be a great place for sunsets on CLEAR days. So I may give it a try sometime. I put the captions on my above pics so you know where they are from.
Here is one last one of the Dike at Pitt-lake near the canoe rental place.

Actually, it's on my parent's porch out in Belcarra. I was over one afternoon, saw it on the porch, and liked how it looked with the rain. The raindrops you see are actually droplets that stuck to the glass on the porch railings. It worked really well as a backdrop, I thought.

I actually did have my shutter set to about 1/4 second with the hopes of getting some of the actual falling raindrops, but they blurred right out. I prefer the shot I got from the shot I intended anyways
