White and Pink

These are beautiful flowers found in the Japanese Gardens in Kelowna, British Columbia. According to the City of Kelowna website, “The garden was completed in 1987 to demonstrate the friendship and union between Kelowna and its sister city in Kasugai, Japan. The park integrates traditional elements notable in Japanese gardens, such as stone lanterns, pine trees, waterfalls and a pond stocked with Koi. It is a beautiful integration of stone, pathways, plants and water.”

Old Rusted Miner’s Cart

We went for a hike in Kootenay National Park in British Columbia 86 kilometers from Radium Hot Springs. We came across this old rusted miner’s cart. I think it is really interesting.

According to the Parks Canada website, Paint Pots are “ Iron-rich pools and ochre beds, culturally significant to indigenous people including the nearby Ktunaxa Nation.”

Water Bliss

Water Bliss

Is there anything more beautiful or blissful than seeing, hearing and feeling a natural waterfall? I love the sound of the water as it comes over the rocks or mountain side and feeling the soft spray of sparkly, wet water droplets. This is one of many beautiful falls in British Columbia.

Fishing Boat

Fishing Boat

This is a fishing boat in the Vancouver Harbour in British Columbia near the Lion’s Gate Bridge in Stanley Park. It is being followed by a flock of birds because of all the fish they are catching.

I have put some nice blue effects on the image to make it more interesting than the gray scale image that it originally was.

There comes a time in our journey when we must face the decision to go over the bridge or turn back and choose another direction. It is time to go over the bridge into the future. Here we go onwards on the path of life.

This is the bridge in the Japanese Gardens in Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

I like the geometric design in the roof which is complimented by the plant life.

Balance Me This

Balance Me This

What a wonderful bird? It is balancing every so precariously on its perch while seeming to eat something. They are elegant birds.

According to National Geographic, “All parrots have curved beaks and all are zygodactyls, meaning they have four toes on each foot, two pointing forward and two projecting backward. Most parrots eat fruit, flowers, buds, nuts, seeds, and some small creatures such as insects. Parrots are found in warm climates all over most of the world.”

Totem Poles

Totem Poles

While visiting Stanley Park in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, I took this photos of the totem poles.

According to the park’s website: “Totem poles are unique to the north west coast of BC and lower Alaska. They were carved from western red cedar and each carving tells of a real or mythical event. They were not idols nor were the worshipped. Each carving on each pole has a meaning.”

Here is a beautiful red rose from me to you! I have left the essential rouge colour as it is and took out the green background to make it black and white. I love what you can do with computer design nowadays.

It was taken at the Rose Garden in Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
