Just a few of my favorite landscape images from the last few weeks. No real theme. Just shots I saw out and about during my days here on Vancouver Island.
Sean Sherstone and I spent last night 4X4'ing around the base of Mount Arrowsmith and the Cokely Plateau looking for suitable sites to shoot star trails. We caught a brief sunset over the Alberni Valley and then worked our way over to a spot to the east with a beautiful view of the Gulf and the lights of Courtenay and Comox, and of course, the summer sky. I did my first shot ever of the Milky Way and was reminded this morning of the limitations of an APS-C sensor when it comes to 30 second exposures at ISO 1600 when I opened the images up in Lightroom. Anyhoo, here are my 3 favorite images from last night!
