I’ll be glad when things finally get back to a normal level of busy. I took a single new picture this week, so I hope you enjoy a look back at some of my older shots.

I spent a week in Vancouver a couple years ago for a work conference, and added a couple extra days to take in the touristy stuff during my first visit out west.

This shot of the Lion’s Gate bridge is from the Stanley Park side looking towards North Vancouver.

I ended up walking a little over 30 kilometres in Vancouver over two days, with a camera around my neck for most of it. A trip up Grouse Mountain via the gondola was a must-do.

Canon 80D – EFS 18-135mm – 135mm – f5.6 – 1/60 – ISO 320

There is a grizzly bear sanctuary at the top of the mountain and my first time seeing a grizzly.

On the first day of my Vancouver conference, it was the first day of clear skies.

This shot is of the rising sun from the Vancouver Convention Centre looking towards the Burrard Inlet.

In all the years that I have spent walking the cottage property, I often come across something new.

This bright yellow bracket fungus stood out against the surrounding green of the moss and undergrowth.

In more than fifteen years, 2020 was the first time we didn’t go to Algonquin Park for fishing in May (this is the second year). The pandemic closed the parks that spring.

Canon 80D – EFS 18-135mm – 27mm – f4.0 – 1/160 – ISO 200

This shot of the headwaters of the Petawawa River shows more of a creek than a river. I’m hoping to see the other end of this river one day.

Okay, the one new shot of this week. We spent Father’s Day weekend at the cottage. The wind blew pretty hard most of Saturday, but finally calmed towards dinner time.

iPhone XR – 4.25mm – f1.8 – 1/1600 – ISO 25

I have a lot of pictures of this view or some variation. I never get tired of watching the sun set over the distant shore.

Going back about two years to the last May fishing trip. We visited Rosebary Lake that year, traversing the switchbacks and beaver dams of the Tim River.

Canon 80D – EFS 10-22mm – 10mm – f3.5 – 1/3200 – ISO 400

Although it was nice to see a different part of the park, I don’t know that I would be looking at a return trip anytime soon.
