Happy Bull

I recently visited Jasper National Park in the Canadian rockies and while there saw a lot of wildlife including Elk which seem to be fairly mellow in July. In any case, this bull was on the side of the road enjoying a meal of leaves when we happened by. He has irregular antlers which indicate a past injury or incident with his rack. Aside from that, he seem quite content to watch the silly human take pictures of him as he enjoyed the warm July evening. Yes, I was inside a vehicle. 😉

Underside

This is the Lionsgate Bridge which links Vancouver with North Vancouver. The bridge is quite high to allow cargo and cruise ships access to Vancouver Harbor. The Stanley Park seawall and bike path pass under at this location. I can’t help but be impressed with the massive display of engineering and steel, especially when standing here. As I write this post from my Vancouver hotel room late in the evening, I can look over my right shoulder and see this bridge lit up against the North Vancouver mountains.

False Creek

All of Vancouver is amazing, but especially the False Creek section. When I shot this the area was full of photographers and wedding parties. Kind of reminds me of Pelicans back home in Florida. Where there’s Pelicans, there’s fish, you can always tell. In Vancouver, where there’s photographers there’s really cool stuff to see. Okay, I know that’s a really lame analogy, but it’s true.

Five Minute Break

I noticed this hotel worker while walking past the Sheraton in Vancouver. Despite being smack dab in the middle of a busy city he managed to find a quite place for a quick break. I don’t know why I was attracted to the scene but I think we all need to find that quite place from time to time, if even just for five minutes.
I noticed this hotel employee while I was walking past the Sheraton in Vancouver. Despite being smack dab in the middle of the city, he managed to find a spot of relative calm and quite. Not sure why, but I was impressed by the scene. Perhaps we all need to find that quite place from time to time, me included.

Lost Lagoon 4

The reason I call this “4” is because I’ve taken three other shots from this same location. I try not to repeat myself, but on occasion I can’t help it. I took this night before last when walking back to my hotel through Stanley Park in Vancouver. The path was pretty much deserted, and I found out why after I setup, lots of mosquitos. In any case, this is a typical evening glow that residents of this city enjoy. No wonder everyone is so mellow here.

Grouse Mountain Sunset

On the day that I took this there was sun, clouds and the occasional snow storm. I remember this because I had just arrived from Florida and had a light jacket with a t-shirt, …basically over dressed for Florida. About thirty minutes before sunset a snow squall quickly came through and reduced visibility to zero. I ran for the lodge but was covered in snow, however within ten minutes it had passed. Such is the dynamic weather up top the peaks surrounding Vancouver. Now if I can just remember to pack a sweater.
