The Salish Sea is the playground for sailboats in the Spring and summer. It still wears a full white mantle in the Spring that matches the white sails below.
After Dawn, Mount Baker appears as a multi tinted white pyramid rising out of the water of the Salish Sea.
Mount Baker viewed from Vancouver Island is a distant white pyramid year round and, during the day, presents many different moods and colours. Before Dawn the mountain appears as a ghostly dull orange pyramid against the brightening sky.
Beacon Hill Park is a wonderful place to wander on an early summer morning. This scene looks towards a small pond framed by high bushes.
The slopes of Beacon Hill Park are mostly covered in grass as the hill slopes down toward the water. The early sun on a morning in September filters through a small copse of trees near the top of Beacon Hill catching the grass in amber light.
The lone sailboat catches a fresh westerly wind down Juan de Fuca strait as the whips up whitecaps across the water. A low fog embraces the shoreline below the Olympic Mountains across the strait.
Early in the morning above the cliffs along Dallas Road, the sun glints off the water. The cliffs are mostly in the shade because of the low sun angle and the water is almost still as the summer sun catches the flowers, grasses and bushes along the edges of the cliffs.
Dallas Road runs along the top of the cliffs above the shoreline of Juan de Fuca Strait in the city of Victoria. It is the most popular spot in Victoria for walkers of all ages. There is an off leash area for dog walkers and it is very popular especially on weekends.
Mount Rundle towers over the town of Banff and is recognised by visitors to Banff National Park from all over the world.
Beacon Hill Park has a small hill on it that provides a panoramic view of Dallas Road, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains. If you narrow your sites you can follow the grassy hillside down to the road and this copse of trees seen on a late Autumn afternoon.
