Lions Gate Bridge Photowalk

This past Sunday I attended another photowalk from the No Compacts Allowed Facebook group. The group is for digital SLR camera enthusiasts (no they don’t discriminate)  and  meets twice a month having a daytime walk and a night time walk each month.

We started up by meeting a Prospect Point in Stanley Park at 3:30pm with the intention of crossing the bridge to West Vancouver and coming back on the other side take photos of the sunset. After everyone arrived around 4:00ish we began our trek. Now you have to know that I don’t do well with heights and I’ve always have been amazed that people actually walk and bike the bridge on a daily basis. I was extremely nervous, but once we began the trek I quickly relaxed and enjoyed the walk.

As we walked along the other side we began to set up for the sunset at the first tower.  After several minutes waiting there, we walked towards the second tower and I set up shop and waited for the sunset to happen.

We waited for what seemed like an eternity but we were rewarded with an awesome sunset in the end.

We then crossed back to Prospect Point and went to take some shots of the bridge at night. I have always wanted to be able to take photos with the car lights streaking. I have never managed to do it, but thanks to the group, I was able to catch this shot.

I had a great time and looking forward to attending more of these photowalks with the group. Thanks to everyone on the group who truly are very supportive especially to a newbie like me.
