Welcome to the Island Rambles Blog

Hi my name is Nora Flower and Welcome to my blog world. This is a nature and birding photo blog about Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada. I am trying to be a birder and I take photos of the birds and scenery I find. I hope you enjoy your time here and please come back again. PHOTOS WILL ENLARGE IF CLICKED. The photos are slide show enabled if you click on them. If you click on the top lighthouse photo it always takes you to the most recent summary list of my postings.

Mountain Beach SkyWatch Sunset

This post is for Sky Watch, please click to the Sky Watch new web page and see some amazing skies from all around the world, many Sky Watch sites look to be done by professional photo bloggers who take much better pictures than I do with some amazing equipment also. These pictures are taken on a nearby beach that I ran down to get the shot of the moon and sunset and then drove to a little mountain or hill to get some higher shots. Not all taken on the same evening though. I did enhance the colors somewhat but not a lot. I don't use a tripod and with low light it is hard to get the quality I want. Happy SkyWatch Friday everyone. (I have to post this early as many of the Sky Watchers are in an early time zone.)

  41. Your pictures are gorgeous! Island living must be the way to go, huh? I love the colors you've been able to capture. Nicely done.

  42. So much color. A friend of mine used to tease me when I would accuse weird foods, like poptarts or slurpies, of being "colors that don't exist in nature." She always corrected me and told me that every color, no matter how vivid, could be found there. These pictures prove her right.
