Reflections on New Year's Eve
Happy New Year!!! I found a new game to play....Weekend Reflections and you know I love water reflecting. Check out the other reflections there. These shots were taken last week at Brentwood Bay.
Brentwood Bay is the home of the Brentwood Bay to Mill Bay ferry. You can see the long dock there. The ferry route is the oldest continuous ferry route on coastal B.C. and was started by two naval officers in 1924. It was bought out by B.C. Ferries in 1969.
I found two boats there with appropriate names for a New Year's eve party and you can see what we are drinking. The sky was incredible with all the popcorn clouds but I was having to shoot into the sun and did not realize the best shot was the water reflecting the clouds. Then the sun was playing peek a boo with me but I hope you enjoy the shots and hello to the Weekend Reflections folks.
