Happy 150th Birthday Canada!

Several years ago I started a project I called “Imagine”. The purpose of this project was to entice Canadians to see more of Canada by showing them images of some of the beautiful places in Canada and asking them to “Imagine” what it would be like if they were standing in that spot. I have always thought that so many Canadians tend to travel to the Caribbean, or to Mexico or the US instead of staying here in our incredibly beautiful county. There is so much to see and do in this country and yet so few Canadians actually “see” it.
 
In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday I have put together a video of images I have taken across Canada. I hope you enjoy these images and that you can visit some of the stunning places that these images come from.
 
Happy 150th Birthday Canada!!

I drove out to Cape Spear, the most easterly point in North America and a Canadian Historic Site this morning to catch sunrise and I was not disappointed! After taking a few shots I spent some time just watching the incredible beauty and thinking “Canada has the best backyard in the world!  We have more awesomeness per kilometer than any nation in the world” All I can say is WOW!

I am in St. John’s, Newfoundland for a couple of days. Since I got in late today, I drove up to the national historic site of Signal Hill. Made famous by being the reception point of the first transatlantic wireless signal in 1901, it sits amid a spectacular view of both St. John’s and the sea. Beside the parking lot one can see this sign pointing in various directions. This is a 5 minute exposure and in the background star trails are in evidence.
