Lost Lake Dog Beach

This taken from the lost lake dog beach. During the day this place is busy with dogs and their owners but I had it all to myself at 10:00pm.

No Hurry

I spent an hour photographing this dock during by the light of the moonmoon. This was the first photo I took as I approached the dock and knew right away I was going to get a bunch of good photographs over the next hour. The great thing about photographing the moon is that the light does not change very quickly. Sunset only lasts for 30 minutes to an hour but the moon moves slowly across the sky for hours. So it is easier to sit back and play with the camera until you get a photo you like.

Special Stars

The milky way surrounded by twinkling stars.

Still Night

Lost lake was completely still except for the random fish surfacing. Such a peaceful place in Whistler.

Milky Way Break

I was admiring the amazingly bright milky way up in Whistler when the clouds that were slowly moving across the sky broke to either side of the milky way long enough for me to get this shot from between the trees. This is the clearest I have seen the milky way so close to Vancouver.

Dock Side

View from the Alta lake dock at four in the morning. Not a soul around but lots of stars and a great view of the milky way.

I'm Being Followed by a Moonshadow

I just got back from a great weekend up in Whistler. I took this photo Friday night at Lost Lake. The moon was two thirds full but it was totally clear so the moonlight really lit up the lake. I normally do not include people in my landscape photos but decided to pose in this one. What do you think? Do you think it is better with me in the photo or if I stayed out of the way?

Moonlight Dock

Last time I visited Lost Lake I took a photo of this exact scene in the morning. This time I went back at night. I like the night version better.

Alta Lake

Before Whistler was known for its mountains, Alta lake was the main attraction for fishing and a weekend getaway. These days Whistler and Blackcomb get all the attention but Alta Lake is a still an amazing place to visit in the summer.
