Lookout in Vancouver

Recently I visited many different places, and one of them was the "Lookout" tower  which is located atop the Harbour Centre business building in Vancouver. The weather was sunny and I enjoyed the view from there. You can see the whole city with bird's-eye view. After the long rain winter here, it was a pleasure to look at the clear sky. Here are some pictures from there.

The first one is the tower itself from which you look at the beautiful city.

The  view is amazing from there. Do you agree with me?

Recently I was in Stanley Park and enjoyed the colorful and beautiful view there. If you're going to visit Vancouver, you should go there. At this time of the year you can see different flowers such as tulips, narcissus, pansies and so on. Some of them I would like to share with you here.

Squirrels 1

Last summer I eventually understood that I really love to take pictures. I very often went for a hike, and I liked to take a camera with me and take different pictures of nature. I replaced my simple hand-held camera with the semi-professional camera. Then I started to learn more about  how to take the photo and study Photoshop on my own. However, when you study by yourself, sometimes it's difficult to notice what you're doing wrong and find the way to correct it. As a result, I've decided to write this blog in the hope of getting feedback and advice from you about my work. Any comments are welcome :). I'm just an amateur in photography but want to be able to do it well.

For my first post I've chosen some pictures with squirrels that I took recently. There are many squirrels in Vancouver, which was a surprise for me when I came here. Before coming to Canada, I saw squirrels just in a Russian zoo and didn't know that squirrels (and especially raccoons) can go on the streets or parks.

Moreover, I'd never seen black squirrels before coming to Canada. Here is some of them. 

These pictures were taken in Stanley park, one of the most beautiful parks in Vancouver.
