This morning I went snowshoeing even though the weather conditions didn’t look very promising. There was dense fog and driving snow which looked like fertilizer pellets on my jacket. As I snowshoed up the trail it was quiet and peaceful. Since the sky lacked any interesting details I focused on creating images that were simple, which is often difficult to do in photography. I spent most of my time taking pictures of the snow covered trees. Some of the smaller ones bend over due to the weight of the snow. Click on an image to see a larger version.
On Family Day here in British Columbia the weather was sunny with a mild temperature and thin wispy clouds. It looked like it was going to be a beautiful sunset, so I thought this location would make for a nice photo. When I returned to my vehicle I experienced a huge amount of traffic volume which resulted in me taking several hours to get home. Note to self, in the future, don’t try to drive anywhere in the lower mainland on the Monday of a long weekend. Click on the image to see a larger version.
This tree is growing in the middle of an alley behind some condominiums in downtown Vancouver. The trunk of the tree is surrounded by concrete. Cars and garbage trucks squeeze past this tree every day. I’m amazed it hasn’t been cut down by the city and the tree has found a way to survive. Many years ago this area was covered with trees like this one, but this is the last of it’s kind.
