Canada Day 2013 Fireworks

Canada Day in Victoria! It’s always a good time here – roads are closed, lots of people wandering around, good eats, live music, and fireworks. And to top it all off, the weather was amazing! I decided to head downtown to do some wandering… Sooo here’s the pics!

There’s another blog post I wrote for the live music portion. You can take a look at the pictures by clicking this link. There was live music all day, but I showed up later and saw Caracol, Acres of Lions, Odds, and Hey Ocean! It was a pretty stacked lineup, so it was loads of fun taking pictures!

After the concerts, I quickly got out of there and relocated for the fireworks. As I was about halfway to the spot I wanted to go, the fireworks started, so I had no choice but to set up shop nearby. The pictures turned out alright I think…

Canada Day 2011!

Late Saturday night update!! Hey everyone, sorry it took me this long to post up the pictures from Canada Day (July 1st)… I get distracted easily. But thought I’d do an update before I leave for a camping/rock climbing trip at Nanaimo River!

Anyways, Matt and I got annual passes at Butchart Gardens recently, so we thought might as well go check out the gardens again. This time I came prepared with my 50mm lens. I thought it would be good practice for me and it’s a great place for it in my opinion. When Matt and I got there, we obviously rode the carousel, and this time the roses are in full bloom! Sooo beautiful!

Afterwards, Matt and I met up with people from his church and we all had a potluck dinner, then we all headed downtown to hang out and watch the fireworks. I think every year the fireworks get better and better! (Note to self: use manual setting next time you take pictures of fireworks). These next pictures were taken with my Sigma 10-20mm lens.

Hope you all enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed taking these pics. But I’m gonna grab some sleep now. Leaving tomorrow to Nanaimo River… Be back on Tuesday night probably!! Keep checking back.

Week 17 – Canada Day

Matt and I hung out for a bit, and I figured I might as well try some HDR pics. We went up to Butchart Gardens and rode the carousel which is always awesome. I dunno if this turned out alright or not… Too much?

After that we headed over to a potluck dinner at Matt’s church, and then walked downtown to check out the fireworks. I must say I definitely need A LOT more practice that’s for sure. I kind of like this HDR pic of fireworks, but I thought it could’ve been better. I still like it though…
