PHOTO OF THE DAY

I used a mini-tripod set up on an ancient stone wall to get this long-exposure shot of La Baia del Silenzio (The Bay of Silence) at sunset.

PHOTO OF THE DAY

During this period of social distancing, I have started re-organizing my photo files and have come across some of my favourite travel images. I plan to share one every few days. Click on any of the images for a full-res version.

52 Week Challenge – Week 20

Sadly there are no images from Week 19. My life was just too busy that week. To make up for it here are a few extra images from an outing I had this previous week. All photos were taken from one spot and all within 45 minutes as the sun was setting.

52 Week Challenge – Week 16

Here’s something that isn’t cycling or long exposure. Tulips shot on a stroll in the neighbourhood one evening last week.

52 Week Challenge – Week 14

It was another weekend of racing, this time a “Roubaix” style race along the roads and dykes in Pitt Meadows. It rained for most of the day which helped to mimic some of the conditions often found in the Belgian spring classics.

Concentration, determination or despair…not sure which one of these he was feeling.

The weather and physical surroundings created a very Flandrian feel to the race.
