Serpentine Wildlife Area

We found ourselves heading over the Alex Fraser Bridge into Delta this past Sunday.
The clouds were crazy impressive and I finally picked up a (circular) polarizing filter. Still testing it - and my eye but the results are acceptable. Will keep practicing. These are some things I stopped to shoot (or shot from a moving car).

First attempt at growing corn in my apartment kitchen window 
Met a 'herd' of cows chillaxing with their babies

She seemed fascinated with my camera

A couple of sleepy babies soaking up the sun

Is a back that straight considered good posture?

Another curious little one

Testing out the new polarizing filter on some clouds

I'm finding this filter can really add drama to a shot.
Looks like a mini Winchester Mystery House

First attempt at shooting butterflies (I need a lot more practice!)

This little guy seemed ravenous. Was devouring everything in sight

He (she?) was flitting from blossom to blossom with gusto

I am in love with these natural tunnels
They are magical to me

Grass as high as an elephant's eye

Keep out. Sensitive wildlife area

One more mysterious trail

Lookout tower. I'd like a tree house like this!

Wind pattern in the tall grass

Blowing in the wind

Dramatic clouds as we headed back over the Alex Fraser

Surrey on Sunday

It's Sunday again. And we left our normal 'stomping ground' and headed over the Patullo bridge to the Brownsville area of Surrey.

Just under the skytrain sits the Brownsville RV Park & Pub. An odd little 'community' encircled by industrial compounds. I'd live in that park in a blink!

Down under the bridge, walking distance from the RV park is a little beach that looks out across the Fraser river at New Westminster. It's a tranquil view on this cloudy morning. It's probably a pretty view after the sun goes down with lights on the skyline.


But this chilly Sunday morning had it's own views.

East Richmond

May 27th, 2018. Another lovely, sunny Sunday morning. Blue skies with a few wispy clouds. The day was filled with cool breezes and vibrant greens.
Spring is in full command but Summer isn't far behind. 

Not from this morning - taken one dreary weekday afternoon.

Judgmental much?
Gone to seed.

Buttercups.

A walk through the woods.

Yet to bloom thistle.

Out of the woods.

Final days.

Like veins and arteries.

A little fun with photoshop elements.

Soon to be towering black berries.

Sun dappled path.

Reaching for the sun.

Richmond drag racing...?

Panorama (5 images seamed together).

Farm.

Stacked shipping containers. 

River tugs.
Low tide.

Our little Sidekick that keeps on running.
