Queen of Nanaimo

The coloring against the deep blue water is amazing.

Kayaks

Here are four kayaks on a dock with some great shadows.  Quite truthfully it is hard to take a bad picture of a kayak.  They have such interesting lines.

Junk

This photo of a modern junk was taken from the bow of a rather large car ferry as it was bearing down on the sailboat.  My telephoto isn’t quite powerful enough to see the scared look on the sailors’ faces but I’m sure it was there.  Technically sailboats do have the right of way over powered vessels however when there is such a size difference I think the ferry in practical terms has the right of way.  With just a minute or less to spare the sailboat was able to make a quick loop to avoid getting hit.


 

I really like the red sails on this boat.  It’s not something you see on too many boats in Canada.

Waving Goodbye

I think the shape that this starfish is holding makes him (her?) look like he (she?) is waving goodbye to friends as they go out to sea with the tide.

Cranky

I just love the colors of the rusty winch against the grey water at Fulford Harbor on Saltspring Island.  If you ever go there make sure to visit the Rock Salt Cafe.  We went there for lunch and I had the Texicana Naan Sandwich and it was one of the best meals I have ever had – for $11.  Definitely worth the stop.

Bow – Wow

I was visiting Ganges Harbor on Saltspring Island with some friends and we happened upon a boat show where we were able to board a bunch of working and pleasure boats of various sizes and types.  This is a fancy cruiser with an interesting shadow cast across the bow.

Mill Creek First Falls

This is a shot of the water entering the pool below the first falls at Mill Creek in Ellison.  If you live in the Kelowna area and have never been to this park in Ellison it is worth the trip.  It is a pretty easy walk to the first falls and then you can continue on to more falls, a reservoir, and a pretty deep canyon where you need to be more careful.

Two Types of Fishers

I like this shot because of the contrast between the “fishbird” and his simple equipment and technique and the fishermen and their methods.  My bets are on the bird for getting the biggest haul.  This photo was taken in the bay at Sayulita Mexico.

This creek in the valley in Montana where “A River Runs Through It” was filmed.  It is a beautiful area with plenty of trout fishing.

Akaka Falls – Hawaii

If you ever make it to the Big Island of Hawaii make sure you visit Akaka Falls.  We spent a day and drove around the island when we were staying in Kona and we were passing the turnoff to Akaka Falls right as the sun was starting to set.  It had been a long day so we nearly passed on the falls but made a last minute decision to stop.  It was definitely worth it.  It is a very beautiful falls that is over 400 feet tall.  Wow.
