I am always looking for the light. The right light for the camera. A camera is really light reflecting life.
This pictures above and below were taken with my cell phone as I did not have the camera with me. My Samsung phone takes amazing photos and is so much fun to play with. Check out Ruth's new Cell Phone Blog called Phone Photography, as she is the cell phone camera wizard. I always learn something new that she is doing. We could start a Cell Phone Meme, Saturday Cell Phones! Hey What do you think?? Comment on my comment section.
The sunset photos were taken at Elk Lake where the Rowing Club is. They are for Weekend Reflections and Sky Watch.
This property (3.8 ha (9.3 acre)) was owned by Mrs. Outerbridge from the late 80s to 2005. She spent these years creating gardens, ponds and landscape features to create an oasis for wildlife, particularly birds. For a number of years the property was known locally as the 'Shangri-La Bird and Nature Sanctuary' and was open to the public. Mrs. Outerbridge offered to sell the property to Saanich with the understanding that the park would be kept as a bird and nature sanctuary, and in 2005 it became a park. (quoted from the Saanich Park site)
I think the Heron was at Panama Flats, not sure now.
And here is the Flower Section. The collage is full of flowers from my backyard right now.

Below is the official tulip for Canada's 150th Anniversary. Somehow we got these tulips growing under the bird feeder this year. We bought a random selection of tulips at the garden store and what a nice surprise. They last for a long time and are so showy. I have more photos to put in later on. The colors resemble our flag. I have no idea why we had them bloom this year, they will available in all Home Hardware Stores in September.
“The tulip represents gratitude and the long-standing friendship between Canada and the Netherlands. Blooming in the colours of Canada’s flag, Canada 150 tulips will bring both pride and joy to gardens and communities from coast to coast to coast.” (quoted from Tulips in the Capital)
