I think my Granny had an oil painting on her wall that looked like this:D I've tried this shot many times but the light seemed just right today.

It must be breathtaking to stand in the spot you were in to get this wonderful image.

I think those of us who live here are so used to this view we often don't notice it. This shot was taken in Burnaby, right smack in the middle of suburbia. The 70-300mm brought me up close and personal to these mountains without all the houses and whatnot getting in the shot. Lovin lives just beneath those lions:)

Thanks for the comments...And the Nom!

Thanks Lovin...I haven't forgotten you, just stupidly busy. Any weekend now it's going to be sunny and warm and I won't get booked for some silly gig:D


Here's a slightly different angle

Oh my God, what a huge difference of quality between that 70-300mm (standard) and the kit lens 40-150mm (cheap standard).
