Fotoeins Friday: Sechelt flyby on BC’s South Coast

•   Early-morning Harbour Air seaplane (HA141), from Vancouver harbour to Comox harbour for BC Shellfish & Seafood Festival.
•   Flying over Strait of Georgia (Salish Sea), facing north to and passing Sechelt (at centre) at 740am; the waters of Sechelt Inlet beyond.
•   This part of the British Columbia mainland and coastline is also called the Sunshine Coast.

I made the photo above on 12 Jun 2015 with the Canon EOS6D, 24-105 L zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/250s, f/16, ISO400, 92mm focal-length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at as

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:

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

Super Sunday Sunset

Super Bowl Sunday : New York Giants 21 – New England Patriots 17.

This past Sunday the skies were beautiful, bright, and clear in Vancouver. That meant people were out and about to enjoy the short break in between the winter-grey blahs.

What about us?

We missed the entire game.

Instead, we hung out in downtown and the West End, and went to a couple of bars for some beer and drinks (in places where the game was not shown or not a priority). Eventually, we made our way to First Beach.

Here is evidence of a golden sunset over English Bay with the mountains of Vancouver Island in the distance …

That’s my kind of super Sunday.

I made all three photos above 5 February 2012 with the Canon EOS450D (XSi) and 70-300mm zoom-lens. This post appears originally on Fotoeins Fotopress (
