I was a bit startled to see what I thought looked like a pic I took of the sunset from an upper storey window of my house when I opened Manu's thread of great pics. So nice to see another part of the world like that - from above......ahhhh, makes me remember and wish to go up again, to Mt. Washington a little north of me here on Vancouver Island.
Nice to see that others like to share pics here. I do sky pics due to migraines too as mine are weather related.

Hi Manu,
No, my shots are not nearly as amazing as yours are and I am delighted to see pics from so far away.
I happen to live in a stunningly beautiful place, a place I chose rather than where I was born in another part of Canada and I never tire of its beauty.
If I look one way while down a t the city park I see the moutain, Arrowsmith and if I look the other I see the sandbar out in the shallow bay.

As I wachted the olympic games I was reminded that Whistler isn't so far away from you or is it? I really love the mountains ... so keep on posting your pictures! Immanuel :D

Manu,
Your words are too kind. Many of my 'pics' are actually stills I have lifted out of video and I find that unless conditions are just right the result is often less than clear
and
your shots are lovely that way, nice and clear.
Do you remember the childhood card game of snap?
Well, when I saw your moon shot above I knew I had one somewhere. so,
snap Manu, snap!

the distant mountains are across the Georgia Straight on the mainland toward Whistler and Vancouver, seen thru our local park at the beach which gives those big skies I so love.

Soon, as it is almost the eve of herring season here, the eagles will be thick at the beaches, first because of plentiful food, if not herring then those that feed upon the herring, and then because their young will be brought to the beach where they can sit in safety on the sandbar and in a few trees in the park. Just so you don't think that it took some prowess to get a shot like this one, I just parked my bike as they watched and took my photos from below.

Great pictures! BC has some gorgeous scenery. Watching the Olympics and seeing your pictures makes me want to take a trip there again. We might have gone to see some of the Olympics if my mom's health hadn't declined so much, since they're so close to home.

That's great you can see the bald eagles so easily. A pair nests near us, but we only see them a few times, mainly in the spring when the nice weather comes and they're out soaring. Beautiful creatures.

Thanks!

Hi L2garden,

we can sometimes see Mt Baker from the heights of the mid-island and from the ferry on a clear day. I'll wave next time! :lol:
You must have some rich scenery where you are too.
Everyplace is nice in Spring and ours seems early this year, doesn't it? Forsythia is just out now and I see a mini daff about to open in a protected spot. We are about 2 weeks behind Vancouver here.

I'm further away than you think, so I wouldn't see you wave. :D I think it would be about a 6 hour drive to get into Canada.

I have several daphs in bloom now. They came up about 3 weeks ago I think. I have an early blooming clematis showing buds now and just about every shrub is leafing out and bamboo is shooting. Crazy!
