Made the trip up to Artist Point last night – just caught the last bit of nice light. A portion of my shots were unusable as a lot of mosquitoes decided that it would be a good idea to take up residence in my lens hood and I was in too much of a hurry to notice. Note to self: I will get there earlier next weekend and I will bring bug spray.
The decent sunset is courtesy smoke from forest fires in Washington State and BC.
The Stawamus Chiefis the second largest granite monolith in the world (after El Capitan in Yosemite National Park). Probably why my Geology Professor dragged us out there and tried to make what is a spectacular sight uninteresting.
Howe Sound Sunset with Anvil Island in the foreground.
I have occasionally seen the odd honey bee drinking water from the edge of the pond, and occasionally from the edge of the birdbath – but never en masse like they have this year. I don’t know if it is the nature of the summer weather, or the fact the neighbours have a beehive – but they have been there every day in numbers for most of the last few months. I got the tripod and my macro lens in very close to them and aside from a few buzzing around my head they didn’t much care I was there. At least they sit still on the birdbath relative to on the flowers.
