Whistler

I spent the Labour Day long weekend at Whistler, enjoying wonderful company and witnessing the marriage of two lovely friends 🙂  The weather was perfect, and the beer and wine were free flowing.  I dragged up all my camera gear… and made very little use of it.  I was simply too busy relaxing and socializing to spend too much time staring through my viewfinder.

But I did take a few photos…

You can't get a more postcard perfect day than this!

The ski hills don't look nearly as inviting like this - but I certainly prefer the hot sunny weather to the snow!

I'm not sure exactly what this little one is, but it stayed still long enough for a crisp close up.

A beautiful clear night for a BBQ and some beers (I highly recommend Whistler Brewing Co. Grapefruit Ale).

My first attempt at a star trail photo.  I had a few issues with the interval timer (i.e. not knowing properly how to set it) resulting in some gaps... but all in all I am not displeased with my first go.
