Night Photography

Canadian Rockies II

So I should have continues updating some of the post from the Rockies Trips.

Bow Lights

No matter how many times you’ve been to Bow Lake. The beauty of it will never fail stopping you for a little while, or in some case a very very long time…

Athabasca Twilight

Athabasca Falls in Jasper National Park at twilight. The right time to shoot the waterfalls without the need of a ND filters! 🙂

Castle Highway

The ever changing weather in the Canadian Rockies were so unpredictable. But when the good lights show its beauty, you might just have to stop. Even on the side of Highway 1 beside Castle Mountain! And not to mention how many times you need to stop on the Icefield Parkway.

On The Road

And one of my favorite is Waterfowl Lake. Here are a few night shots from the night I stayed there.

I was pretty lucky to have a lot of clear sky at night, and overcast sky during the day like these one

Dance Through the Night

Dance Through the Night

Amazing night show from Lost Lake last night. Arriving late around 1AM last night and found out there are a lot of taxi leaving from there. And as I walked into the lake, people were everywhere watching the night dance. This is one of the frame from the time lapse sequence I captured last night!

Porteau Cove

A popular night photography location and I do like shooting at Porteau Cove. Or just stop for a few shots to check out the weather when heading north on the Sea to Sky Highway. So here I’d like to share with you some of them from many different nights. Some are from the pier, and some are down by the shore when it was in low tide condition.

And I also like take a shot of my wheels against the dark starry night sky. This little guy below, I only had it for a short period of time. But I’m glad I took him out for this only shot I have.

Starry Ride

And the reason I had it for just a short time is because I changed it to this big guy below!

Night Wheels

At last, I’d like to include this time lapse video with many of the shots taken from Porteau Cove. Hope you enjoy it!

So good to have the milky way season back. Well… it was back for a while, but the weather conditions hasn’t been very good for taking astrophotography. And last night was a great night for that in a very long time. Get to this location right around sunset time and setup some time lapse. Stay up til’ around 3:00am and shot a total of 5 time lapse sequence with 2 cameras. And just to found out one of the CF Card have some problem causing 2 of the time lapse sequence straight into the trash…. Oh well… at least I stall got a few of the frames from that and this is a frame from one of the sequence…

Hope you enjoy it and have a great night!

Garry Point Park by Day

Located in the southwest corner of Richmond. Garry Point Park is a great place to photography. No matter what time of the day you go, or what kind of weather it is. Well…. sure you got to have a way to keep yourself and your equipment dry or simply avoid it all together.

Garry Point Needle

From the left side entrance on to the trail into the park. After passing through a Asian style garden, you will see the structure above. An iconic symbol that representing the park by the ocean.

Sunset Picnic

Garry Pint Bench

You can find all kind of great composition along the trail. One of my favorite part of the park is the beach with all the tree truck float on to the beach from the ocean.

Junk from the Ocean

I wasn’t very sure if these all actual junk from the ocean until I visited few weeks ago where all these tree truck are all gone. I was a little sad where all these great foreground are gone. But they did a great job on cleaning the beach, what can I say…

Fading Away

Here is another great sunset by the 2nd beach near the light tower. And I highly recommend to visit this place when the tide is low!
