2011 WEEK 40: Grey, Grey Days

The weather was exceptionally uncooperative for photo-taking this past week. I was hoping to get some shots of the full moon (did you know last Saturday was worldwide "Lunar Day"?) but the clouds, cold and rain moved in. Just as well you were all spoiled with last week's 3 part series of photos to make up for the slim pickings this week!


A typical view across Coal Harbor (minus the rain). We'd all best get used to these grey, cloudy conditions. According to the Weather Network we're in for a chilly winter here in Western Canada this year.

So make the most of any colours you can find...


Surprisingly there are still some flowers around.


The above image was taken at Prospect Point on the edge of Stanley Park. I was hoping for some interesting wide angle opportunities of Lions Gate bridge and the mountains but everything was grey and hazy. Even this guy below has his cold, impassive winter face on...


I was also hoping for some long exposure dusk shots of rush hour across the bridge but I only managed a couple of shots before the rain kicked in and it wasn't nearly dark enough for it to really work. Still, good to know the idea is sound in principle.


The large white and red blur in the right side lane is a bus. Hopefully as the days draw shorter and darkness comes earlier, I can get better results next time.

Until then, I hope all of you in Canada had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Stay tuned for some pumpkin and Halloween craziness coming soon!
