Such a dramatic sky and bold green... There is so much in that shot, that my mind is just taking it all in... wonderful! Love the crispness, everything is in focus.

Dong--I don't know. But when I stopped and aim at taking a shot of this, my husband asked what I was seeing. I think all he saw was green :)

Hey! I was in Stanley Park in May of 2007 too! (More of a coincidence than it sounds, since I live 10,000 miles away.)

It's a lovely shot, and brings back wonderful memories.

What a picturesque landscape!

Tarolino said...

I must say that I was so taken in by this scenery that I hardly noticed the sky at first. Still the clouds behind those mountains are impressive in their own right.
Such a pleasing image and perfect composition.

I agree that this is a very dramatic sky, and I think the bold greens just enhance the whole mood of the scene even more. Great job!

I wouldn't have missed the clouds too, of course, the greeneries will get much of your attention...Perfect!

Babooshka said...

That's idyllic. Just gorgeous.

Deborah Godin said...

It's been far too long since I was in Stanley Park! I recall it suffered a lot of storm damage a while back, don't recall the year, but everything looks wonderful in your photo.

Bryan said...

Another beautiful shot! I love how the mountains are just barely peeking out from over the trees. The hint of reflection makes me want to step closer to the pond and see what I else I can find.

And yes, I love Skywatch! It was the first meme I tried. Now I have a meme for every day of the week except Thursday, which is okay since I have two on Monday.

Ginnie said...

A few years back I was in Stanley Park, Maria, but probably not in this spot, since I don't recognize it. But I love that you captured the sky there in a place that is special to me.

Such clarity - you picture just pops! My pictures are from about 100 miles north in Powell River. I invite you to come see my March snow shots from Powell Lake, BC. - Margy
