11:57 a.m. in the Mount Maxwell forest
Snow and fog on the upper half of the mountain. Then at the top, kids with sleds and parents with hot drinks.
And one very happy Westie.
The first stars appear as the last colour of the day fades away. The iconic Mount Maxwell watches over the early night sky.
12:25 pm just minutes from the hustle and bustle of Ganges:
Another spectacular winter day, this one hiking the trails around Mount Maxwell’s summit.
Certainly one of the iconic Salt Spring Island scenes. We’re looking from Salt Spring southward towards Sansum Narrows. That’s Salt Spring on the left and Vancouver Island to the right (west). Maple Bay is tucked in around the western point. A recent photo of the day was also looking towards Maple Bay but from Mount Maxwell.
The vapour trails in the sky show the paths of flights from Vancouver Airport heading toward the USA and beyond.
(This scene is faithfully portrayed on a colour balanced monitor. The post-sunset colours are what was seen at the time the image was captured. I say this only because of the disturbing trend toward ‘over-photoshopped’ images we see on the web and on TV.)
2 pm, Mount Maxwell
