Weekly Photo Challenge: Morning


A frosty early morning walk last January was rewarded with this view from Hadden Park in Vancouver looking west to English Bay, with a backdrop of distant snow-capped peaks and the ski slopes of Cypress Mountain to the North, all bathed in a glorious rosy pink light from a spectacular sunrise in the east. A magical moment to be remembered, savoured and shared.

English Bay

Walking across Burrard Bridge in Vancouver this morning and looking out to English Bay the view was more spectacular than ever. I paused in the middle of the span and took this shot using the panorama setting on my iPhone 6S. It was only later that I checked this week’s Photo Challenge from Cheri in which she has invited us to “share a photo of a landscape: a wide establishing shot of a scene in nature or an urban setting.” I think this will do don’t you? 🙂

If you would like to see more pictures of this beautiful Art Deco Bridge that was opened in 1932 check out my post a bridge for all from November 2014, which I posted at that time for the third week of Cheri’s Photography 101.

Happy first day of April.

The Red Cyclist



Serendipity! I took this photo last night as I walked along the seawall overlooking English Bay in Vancouver. The perfect shot, I hope you agree, for this week’s Photo Challenge: Contrasts.
