Saturday Photo Hunt --- Vertical










VERTICAL



I took this photo yesterday on a very windy Vancouver day. It was amazing to see the flag flying straight out for once, instead of hanging down. This morning I realized it was perfect for today's theme. Fresh snow on the mountains too.


Another photo from yesterday shows something which should be vertical but is not. This was one of three boats washed up on the beach during the night, since they broke free from their moorings in the 100km/hr winds. They are live-on boats so the occupants were rather scared by it all, but all will be well at the next high tide when they can be refloated.



HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE

Those are both beautiful shots JMB although that would be scary for the people on the boat. I love the snow capped mountains. Happy weekend.

Oh both are magnificent capture. I really love how upright the Canadian flag is and how proud it sways to the breeze.

Very nice photos. In both, I was attracted to the surroundings of the verticality as well as the items in focus themselves. In particular, that first photo's mountains and both photos' bright blue skies look so lovely. :)

Beautiful shot of your city! The snow-capped mountain looks gorgeous!

I wonder how it is like to live on a boat permanently.

Those winds were scary all right. But what the way they made the flag so proud is amazing.
