On the 75th Anniversary of the liberation of the Netherlands by the Canadian Armed Forces what better way with which to honour them all than with these Dutch tulips in triumphant bloom on our deck in today’s glorious sunshine.
Lest we forget.
Celebrating Victoria Day here in Canada with this photo of the Queen Victoria hoodoo in Bryce Canyon from our memorable visit hiking the hoodoos in 2015.
We are all grieving with Humboldt Saskatchewan tonight.
After our walk along Spanish Banks last week we took the Admiralty Trail, one of our favourite pedestrian pathways through the Pacific Spirit Regional Park, and enjoyed the glorious October fall colours illuminated by the afternoon sunshine.
These six beautiful fallen maple leaves that featured in my post to celebrate the first day of Fall
last September have such a different meaning today. With a breaking heart I send condolences and sympathy to the six families who lost their loved ones in the terrorist attack in Quebec City last night and to those recovering in hospital I wish a full and speedy recovery.
Kitsilano in the snow #2
Inspired by a magical morning on Kitsilano Beach after the snowfall before Xmas, which I posted about in backdrop to a life: part 2
and which was also the inspiration for the first of the year
The Gift of the Four Treasures
has once again weaved its magic spell with the superpower
that resides in its brushes and ink.
Looks like the beginning of a new series for a new year.
The golden hour and the Vancouver skyline at the end of New Year’s Day 2017.
For this week Discover Challenge: Flâneur Krista asks us to “Observe your city, town, street, or patch of earth and report back — in your favorite medium.”
No surprise that the patches of earth that I love to feature on The Changing Palette,
as you know, are here on Kitsilano Beach Park in Vancouver with views out to English Bay.
Yesterday’s morning walk at sunrise was rewarded with these glorious Fall colors in the park…
the silhouetted figures seen between the trees…
and the tankers illuminated out in the Bay.
One final image from the walk you might recognize as I used for an eerie backdrop in my post for this weeks Photo Challenge: Transmogrify.
