    Barnet Marine Park is situated along Burrard Inlet along the north end of Burnaby Mountain in Burnaby, BC. This was my final stop of the day back in October, where I’d previously visited Sasamat Lake and Rocky Point Park hunting fall foliage. The cement structure between the lighthouse and the shore is the remains of an old scrap burner that was used for a lumber mill that was on this site until 1958. This spot is one I have visited for over 20 years, and I always enjoy the walk along the shoreline even if the light isn’t photo worthy. This is a great place to view wildlife (seals, crabs, herons etc.) as well as a wide variety of passing boats.

   Last week I went to Blackie Spit in Crescent Beach to photograph birds, the estuary, and whatever else I could find. I specifically chose an evening at high tide as I have previously been here and sometimes the canals and flats are not nearly as photogenic with mud, dry/crusty algae, and other low tide qualities. This was one of the views near sunset – the buildings of Burnaby’s Metrotown area with Boundary Bay in the foreground, and the Northshore Mountains in the background. A friend initially thought this could be the buildings of downtown Vancouver but Google Earth confirmed this is indeed Burnaby. This photo illustrates one of the things I like about this region, mo matter where you are there is likely a view of the mountains even when many kilometers away. The panorama below shows a bit of a wider view of the area I photographed, including more of the mountains and some of the old dock pilings (I presume) left over from old infrastructure.
