Summer solstice sunset silhouette at the Salish Sea : Second Beach, Stanley Park, Vancouver, Canada - 21 Jun 2014, fotoeins.com

Fotoeins Friday: summer solstice sunset silhouette

On a beautiful warm sunny day on Canada’s West Coast, the first day of summer feels like the everybody in Vancouver shows up in parks and beaches. There are countless numbers of bicyclists; rollerbladers; people walking the Seawall; families, children giggling away, babies in strollers; people walking their dogs, and people on the beach to get their tan on. I’m glad my friend, Megan, was with me to watch this magnificent sunset.

Two additional summertime shots appear here and here.

I made the photo above at Second Beach in Vancouver’s Stanley Park on the evening of 2014’s summer solstice (21 June). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com, and also appears on Travel Photo Thursday for Nancie McKinnon’s Budget Travelers Sandbox.

Fotoeins Friday: first day of northern summer

The solstice marks the longest (shortest) day of the year in the northern (southern) hemisphere. For many in Vancouver, Canada, it’s perfect beach weather for a picnic, a swim, a row, or simply watch people go by, followed by a sunset over the water. Another popular activity here at Spanish Banks is beach volleyball, either 2 versus 2, or a full 6 against 6.

My Vancouver: western beaches in winter (2012)

It’s easy to forget Vancouver has a number of beaches on both sides of Burrard Inlet. Returning to my hometown to begin my year-long around-the-world (RTW) trip was a good opportunity to revisit a number of places I hadn’t seen or visited in decades. One area was the “western beaches”; namely, Jericho Beach, Locarno Beach, and Spanish Banks along the northwest shoreline of the city.

Vancouver city by day

I was born and raised in the city of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I left Vancouver in 1994, and for the next 17 years, I hadn’t spent more than one to two weeks in any subsequent visit.

I returned to Vancouver on 2012 January 4 after leaving job, career, and country of residence behind. In the six following weeks, I discovered new aspects to my hometown, and rediscovered “old” things I hadn’t encountered in over 20 years.

With this gallery, I’m showing parts to Vancouver which make the city beautiful and compelling. Anyone can find these gems for themselves at no charge, apart from the cost of public transit, because, really, why are you driving around town? Another gallery showing Vancouver at night will be posted very soon.

Here is some more photo goodness from Vancouver:

I made the photos above on January 2011, January 2012, and February 2012. This post is published on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com.
