Drove up a 7km hill to this lookout point near Lightning Lake…Fantastic view!
Then we drove a bit further, and then hiked up a bit, and got this view!
Not sure the pictures do the view justice. Second pano has the sky blown out…probably needed a tripod, and several exposures to combine into an HDR to do it right…Click on the images to see a slightly larger version…the original images are HUGE! (5 x 12 Megapixels!)
OK…we could see the almost full moon from our campsite, through the trees, it looked fantastic! Taking a picture of it was quite difficult. This was the best I could do. I think I need to blame it on my camera…if I adjusted the aperture for the moon, so it wasn’t totally blown out, the surrounding trees/sky were too dark. I tried post processing to bring up the sky, and thus the tree silhouettes, but this was as good as it got. I think to capture this properly, I would need a tripod, and take several pictures with different exposures…then create a HDR (High Dynamic Range) combined image. Maybe next time.
A sunset, water, reflections and a hand made boat…it’s peaceful at Lightning Lake!
Thanks to my niece for pointing this shot out to me! Nice colours in the sky…great for a silhouette!
Another shot of lightning lake in Manning park…Beautiful lake for canoeing/kayaking etc. No motors allowed!
Trip to Manning park, Lightning Lakes… More pics to come!

Riding the ever famous trolly cars in San Fransisco…at the top of one of their huge hills looking down at the water. Lots of fun if you ever get a chance to visit.
