Out of the dark blue sea rose a lush-green mountain ribboned with cascading waterfalls.This was what we saw after 29 days at sea, our first tropical landfall on our round-the-world journey–the Marquesas Islands

Walking through the village on Nuka Hiva down narrow, winding roads, past pastel-colored houses surrounded by gardens overflowing with flowers and dense tropical foliage, melting in the heat and humidity and the perfumed air . . . . . I felt physically and mentally assaulted, overcome by the intensity of the colors and the abundance of the beauty that surrounded me.

Perhaps it was because we’d been so long at sea, or because this was our first glimpse of a tropical paradise. Or perhaps it was for me as it has been for so many artists and travelers coming to the South Pacific for the first time.

Colors exploding all around me, shattering the senses—sight, smell, and sound…

Dragonfly

What a surprise this dragonfly was! Just hanging out on one plant and then the next. Lucky me! I love the black and white stripes on its wings. I’ve actually never seen this type of dragonfly before so it was a really a treat to have it so close and so still for me to photograph.

Summertime Beachy Pleasures

Finally, summer is here! Vancouver’s Lower Mainland has been usually cold the last few weeks but lo and behold, summer is here. And as so, I was ever so inclined to take the kids to the beach. Here’s one photo that I think represents some of the reasons why we really love summer.

Hot Pink, Wild Rose

Hot hot pink. These wild rose bushes on the way to our local playground, fill my heart with nostalgia every spring time. My grandmother used to love these flowers and I think she even made tea with them. Each time I see them and smell their beautiful scent, I think of her.

Moonlit Dahlia I

Little bit of light play. This is the most stunning dahlia but I thought why not photograph it at night and from below? It’s something different (for me) and kind of refreshing. I like the way this lighting emphasizes the textures of this beautiful flower. Tomorrow, I will post this flower from above so you can see its hundreds of pink and yellow petals lit the same way.

Aldergrove Zoo, Part 4 – Pink Flowers

Such amazing pinks! When in full bloom, these resemble a wild rose-bush, but the buds are quite different from the wild roses I’m familiar with. Do you know what these are?
