Vancouver’s beautiful Lions Gate Bridge, also known as “First Narrows” is a suspension bridge that officially opened in 1938. It is one of the main bridges that connects North & West Vancouver to downtown. It can be seen from many different areas in the city and one of the best viewing areas is from the Stanley Park seawall. From the seawall you get a full view from below the bridge and you can even walk beneath it.

Other locations that have great views of the bridge are from Prospect Point in Stanley Park and on the other side of the Burrard Inlet at Ambleside Beach in West Vancouver. If you want a higher viewpoint try the lookout from Cypress Mountain, just a 10 minute drive up the mountain from the Upper Levels highway.

Anytime of day is great to take a look at the bridge, my personal favourite is at dusk just after sunset.

I recently spent some time in Pender Harbour, BC. It’s a beautiful area on the Sunshine Coast that is full of quaint little coves and beautiful BC forest. An area just off one of the main roads caught my eye with water so still it looked like glass. The reflections were just amazing as well. I captured the shot below with a 2 minute exposure. This gave the clouds a bit of movement and they reflected on the cove just beautifully!

The Kalalau Valley in Kauai, Hawaii is truly magical. The view is like none other with red dirt that turns into lush green rolling hills and jagged mountain ridges, then ends in the beautiful blue ocean.

Timing is everything when you make the trip to the Kalalau lookout area. The weather can change so suddenly you’ll barely have a moment to peek over the edge. After a long drive up the mountain and stopping for a bit at the Waimea Canyon lookout we continued down the road until we reached the last viewpoint. I spent about 10 minutes wandering the ridge taking in this incredible natural wonder and was able to capture this image before the clouds came over the mountains and filled in the valley. A heavy rainstorm followed shortly after and I couldn’t see a thing. That 10 minutes was definitely worth the trip though.
