I truly thought we were in for a very cold and long winter in Vancouver but to my surprise January brought us 15 degree weather with a few beautiful days of sunshine! February was about the same and now the cherry blossoms are out and the daffodils and tulips are blooming. It’s kind of similar to the weather we had during the olympics in 2010 except this time the mountains actually had to close.

Here are a couple of shots from a beautiful day we had in January.

During a recent trip to Seattle, WA I had a couple of hours in the early morning to explore the waterfront near Pike Place Market. The conditions weren’t perfect to say the least but I did find the dark overcast skies provided an interesting atmosphere to work with. After wandering through the industrial buildings I ended up on Pier 62, a large wooden pier that looks out over the harbour with great views of the Seattle Aquarium and the Great Wheel. The pier is popular with local fishermen, there were a couple of guys casting rods off the edge of the railing but they left shortly after I arrived. I could see there was a rain storm heading towards us.

The pier had a few large puddles leftover from the rains that came overnight. After exploring the area for a few minutes I found that the puddles had some incredible reflections when looked at in certain angles. There was also a seagull that lingered while I was taking photos, which became a great subject in the scene.

I’m sure I’ll travel back down to Seattle soon to capture some more images but for now these are my favourites!
