Vancouver embraces spring in grand style

The first few days of spring in Vancouver, Canada have seen sun, first signs of new life, and warm temperatures reaching +15C (60F). The days have highlighted a clear advantage for being present in the “Canadian Southwest,” compared to the lingering winter hanging on so desperately in other parts of the country.

Over an 11-hour period, I’m fortunate to catch a few special moments:

    Definitely springtime in the West! Love all these shots. The tai chi is my favorite. This is a far cry from Nova Scotia. Spoke to my Dad yesterday, and Halifax is digging out from one of the worst spring storms in years.

      Hi, Nancie. I saw the CBC coverage; talk about getting slammed again. There are a lot of people in the country who are very tired of winter and eagerly waiting for anything warmer, sunnier. Thanks for reading and for your kind comment about the tai chi picture! 🙂

      Thank you, Maria! Vancouver is a photogenic place, but I think the same can be said for anyone wherever they live. What it takes is for everyone to keep their eyes and their minds wide open … and to have their camera ready at a moment’s notice. 😉 Thanks again for reading and for your kind comment!

    Wow! These photos make me want to visit Vancouver so badly. I’ve never been to Canada but I’d love to, especially after seeing these shots 🙂

      Hi, Franca! It’s easy to forget Canada is the world’s 2nd largest country in physical size; there’s a tremendous number of things to do and see here. As a Canadian, I’ve only seen a small fraction. It would be a great pleasure to show you a little bit of my home city if you’re ever here in Vancouver, in the “Canadian Southwest.” If you want even more motivation, please check out more photo-galleries of Vancouver at: https://fotoeins.com/gallery/north-america-gallery/ 🙂

      Thanks again for reading and for your lovely comment! Cheers to you and Dale!
