So many beaches and just not enough time! Here’s a long exposure image taken at Brooks Point Regional Park on Pender Island this Saturday. A one day spring storm blew though the Salish Sea. It knocked out power and cancelled a few ferry sailings. It also made for some nice long exposures!
What do you do when you wake up at 5am on a Saturday and you really need a photography fix but you have things to do all day? You hit the sunrise at Pipers Lagoon and are back home by 7:30am!
Last night, I spent a warm spring evening photographing along the Nanaimo waterfront. I was accompanied by Jack, Paul, John, and Rick, 4 other members of the Oceanside Photographers. We started off nicely by photographing the super worm wolf blood orange moon at Swy-A-Lana Lagoon! I spun a few orbs and tried some light painting with not too much success!
After an insane non-stop 2 weeks at work I took Saturday off to just go photograph. I had no agenda, no planned shots. It’s Herring season so I was hoping to find an open fishery somewhere along the coast and photograph the action. That all turned into a sunrise at Sebastian Beach in Lantzville and later stalking one lazy eagle for hours at French Creek! Pete, Dwight and I parked ourselves in front of an eagle for over 3 hours and photographed him scratching, pooping and stretching! I chased away my sadness later with a blue cheese burger at the French Creek pub! Just kidding! It was all good fun. A whole day without one work phone call or text is pretty rare these days.
