Quite a mixture of weather this past weekend, blue skies, cloudy skies, rain, threat of snow. We ran the whole gamut.
Rain – was supposed to snow but didn’t……unless you can say we had see through snow.
Finally a little sunshine
Was a busy weekend, celebrated my son’s 16th birthday (actual birthday was on the 27th of January), with a party at the local Boston Pizza. Was a nice evening and I think they all had a good time. Today I went off and picked up the Learner’s Guide for my son, yikes to think he may soon be driving….ahhh well he is a good kid.
Here are a few images from the weekend
Cloudy Saturday Sky
Tulips in the Sun
One I snapped just a few minutes ago, the sky so blue with the moon
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.
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
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
