It was a cold night at Porteau Cove Provincial Park with some strong wind on this evening. This tower by the pier make a good subject against the dark night sky. You can see my buddy on the second level taking some shots from up there! Have a great night!
It was a aurora active night last night with a Geomagnetic Activity level of 5 Kp. A good reason to head out hoping to capture some colorful night sky. As I was driving up north on Sea-to-Sky highway still thinking where I should go. And as usual Porteau Cove is a great stop just to see if there are any color going on in the sky. Get off the car and not to mention of the color, it was hardly see just a few stars because it was so cloudy. Waited for an hour as the sky started to clearing up, but there are still no color showing. Wandered around in the park for another half hour and see the tide and getting lower. So I changed my shoes and decided to head down to the water for some dark sky water shot. Hope you enjoy!

Porteau Cove on a low tide starry night. It’s been a while seen I last seen a starry night sky. Exploring on this low tide night wandering around the coastline.
It was a night out chasing aurora, didn’t have any luck on that. But it was still a great night out shooting under the starry night sky. And happy to have a shot of my new wheels! Have a great day!!

Awesome show of aurora borealis glow the other night. I drove 2 hours north to visit few lakes up in Whistler. This on is a panorama shot take at Lost Lake. Aurora reflected in the lake with milky way arc going from north to the south end (left to right). It was a wonderful night for astrophotography!
It’s always hard to aviod stopping at Green Lake when heading up whistler for night shoot. And there’re no exception on this evening after shooting aurora at Alta Lake. The galactic centre of the milky way was just above the horizon around this time of the night.

It’s going to be a while until the next time I can enjoy a quiet, calm nigiht like this as I’ll be in Shanghai very soon. And with all the light pollution there, I don’t know when and where I’ll be able to see a starry night skies next… In the mean time, I hope you enjoy this last one from Whytecliff Park, West Vancouver, BC. Have a great night!

Glow In The Water
The Boat House
A night exploring Garry Point Park on a freezing cold night. It’s been raining for few days and my buddy call for a night shoot right when the rain stop…. well… kind of stopped. We head down to the park and it was a great dramatic overcast sky without moon. It was dark by stay away from the street lights. But also have them lit up the wood nicely from a distance. I found this nicely positioned tree rrot by the beach when I explored the park before during the day knowing where to find it. Otherwise it would be a difficult task just to find it in the dark. Hope you enjoy and have a great night!
It is recommended to watch the aurora borealis under a clear sky. In this case, the clouds above lit by the city lights from below. Making it more dramtic with the green glow, what do you think?
A month ago firends of mine was visiting from Shanghai and we went to Porteau Cove one night hoping to see a starry dark night sky. When we arrived, the sky was completely coverd with clouds. It was a little dissapointed at the time, but after we waited there for about an hour with freezing cold wind chill. The sky finally clearing up and this is the moment of that 50/50 situation. It was worth the wait in the cold for sure! Would you do that?
Giant Organic Train
The beautiful milky way connected with the waterfalls on earth! Unfortunately, it is a man-made connection because it is a composite image from 2 different shots taken from different time and different locations. After my first visit to this waterfalls knowing the direction will never meet the milky way galactic core, I decided to use one of my old milky way shot and try a composite with these crazy treeline. And quite happy with it! Although it is not actually taken at the spot, I’m quite happy with the result! And I hope you enjoy it!
