Hi folks, thanks for popping by today, we really appreciate it. After the mistakes I made in the last 24 hours in regards to the software review we posted here and the resulting huge increase in traffic, coupled with my hurried retraction and apology to everyone, I think it’s time to take a quick break and sit a spell in a wonderful park.
The Gorge Kinsman Park is situated right in Victoria city in BC on Vancouver Island, Canada. It has a Japanese Garden to enjoy, as well it sits directly on the Gorge Waterway and has many opportunities to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature at it’s finest in Victoria.
This gorgeous wooden archway sits in the entrance to the Japanese Gardens in the park. As we sit inside the gardens themselves, we can see the meandering pathway that leads to the arch and the rest of the park. The warm tones of the beautiful wood entrance really compliment the rich greens and other colors present in the park in summer.
This building in the garden area of the park is what I believe to be a concession stand. I loved the way the dark wood tones and the red roof really helped to create the overall sensation of visiting a true Japanese Garden. Little waterfalls and creeks pepper the gardens, and the lovely sound of rushing water can be heard everywhere.
This picture is just for fun. As I was leaving the park, I came across this gentle butterfly sitting on the leaves enjoying the day. I had my favorite lens on, our 50mm prime, and therefore couldn’t zoom in or out. With a prime lens you move the camera body itself closer or farther away from the subject. I grabbed these 3 brackets for HDR processing quickly, and then tried to quietly and peacefully move in closer… the butterfly wanted none of that and as soon as I took my first step after this shot, it bolted. This picture is most definitely not the prettiest or most compelling image of a butterfly, but it was fun and unique and I hoped you might enjoy it today.
We sure do appreciate your visit today, folks, thank you very much! Please feel free to leave us some comments as we always love to hear from our visitors.
