Weekend Skies #4

Not so much the skies today but what was in the skies.

A public memorial for Tim Jones of North Shore Rescue, not someone I knew personally, although I saw him almost every day on the news reporting on a rescue in the mountains in North Vancouver, BC, talking about a rescue, coordination of a rescue or of the rescue itself. Rest In Peace Tim.

Weekend Skies #3

Vancouver has been shrouded in fog for the past few days. It is eerie when you drive to work and see lights coming at you out of the thick fog. It is still pretty dark in the mornings and harder to get some good fog pics. I took my Pentax this morning and went down to Lonsdale Quay and tried to capture Vancouver coming out of the fog. Up at my place about 22 blocks above the Burrard Inlet, the skies were blue.

While down at the Quay, the fog lingered over the city.

If I had of stayed for a longer period of time, I would have seen the fog lift over the buildings as the sun can be seen trying to peek through the buildings.

A few minutes later, it brightened up considerably….while the Seabus travels across the Inlet to Vancouer

Weekend Skies #2

There were no even interesting skies this past weekend, pure gloom and doom, lots of rain without any signs of it ever stopping. Thankfully it did on Monday so I captured these couple of images with my iPhone during my breaks at work.

Weekend Skies #1

Once again I have been away from here for a long time, I have thought about shutting down the blog altogether but decided to give it one more try.

I am going to do a challenge for myself over the next year a Weekend Skies challenge. I am going to take a photo of the sky each week and post it. I have noticed for some time that the cloud formations that I have seen in our skies have been very interesting. I will try to capture an image or two weekly with either my iPhone or my Pentax K100D.  Without further adieu, here a a few photos I took today
