Supermoon Sunset with vancouver in the background.

Jumped into the car and drove to Jericho near UBC to take some quick shots of the moon (super moon ? blood moon ? ) the MOON. Looking east I could not see it, well that was because with the partial eclipse which was ongoing from the moon rise, it was too under lit by the sun. and looked pale until the sun had set and it became dark enough to really see the moon.

Here are some shots, Jericho / Spanish banks, people getting ready to shoot and some wide angle shots.

I was shooting manual iso 500 – then up to iso 1600 using my sigma 400mm, 105mm f2.5 and 24 f2.8

Manual lens magic. Moon!

Mt. Garibaldi and the Chief

Took some pictures while on a hike in Squamish British Columbia last weekend. The view from Chiefs’ first peak was quite amazing of the valley below to the north, and to the south was Howe Sound. Truly truly beautiful.

Here is a shot of Mount Garibaldi  which is to the north of the Chief. I used my 18-200 mm lens and focused on infinity. I did do some post production because of the ultraviolet light was very bright in sunshine and because I did not have any filters with me.

How about some more pictures from my phone too. And just below is the super large picture if you want it for a wallpaper.
