Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflecting

Perfect for this week’s Photo Challenge: Reflecting was this glorious sunrise last weekend reflected in the water lapping Rathtrevor Beach at the lovely Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Resort, Parksville, British Columbia where I was staying.

An early morning walk along the beach followed with equally stunning reflections seen in the tidal pools left by the receding water.

You can see why our Province is known as Super, Natural British Columbia. Enjoy the slideshow with a few more photos from the walk…

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…

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Morning

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.

Remembering…

Remembering David Bowie with this morning’s sunrise over English Bay in Vancouver
that was pure magic, as was he.
