BC Ferries - Victoria, BC to Vancouver, BC

From 7/17/2013 to 8/2/2013, I took a road trip from the SF Bay Area to Vancouver, BC, Canada. Half of the trip was spent driving up the west coast. On my trip, I visited many famous places such as Seattle, Butchart Gardens, Mount Rainier, and much more. Obviously I got many coastal shots and many places that isn't as famous. The reason I am posting it now is because the high amount of photos I took equaled a high amount of processing time. I took a bit over 2000 photos on the trip. After stitching the panoramas, compositing the HDRs, and picking out photos from the repeats, I have a bit over 1000 photos to show you guys. The photos will be split into parts. I will link you to the previous and next parts on each post just like I did with my Death Valley National Park photos and my Yellowstone/Grand Teton National Park photos. Hope you enjoy this chain of posts!

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To view my best day time photos of Victoria from this trip, use this link. To view all of my day 8 photos, use this link.

Now I begin photos from day 8 of my trip. I ferry over to Vancouver, BC from Victoria, BC this day. Most of the photos were taken at the beginning of the ferry ride so all of them were pretty close to Victoria, BC.

Message from the Photographer: Have you guys checked out my new cheap prints store yet? On my recent trip back to China, I got around 60 of my photos printed and they are now up for sale on my website! They are professional quality prints for a lot less than what you pay for here in US due to the cheap cost of printing photos in China! Come check out my new store here! Get some and hang them up on your wall. Prices negotiable for the custom order prints in the store.

Traffic signs for the cars exiting from the ferry. I thought it would make a nice "street photography" type shot. Approximate GPS location (type into Google) according to the Canon GP-E2 GPS Receiver: 48 41 13 N 123 24 38 W

Now I get in the ferry. This ferry was a lot bigger than the Black Ball Ferry Line one traveling from Point Angeles, WA, USA to Victoria, BC, Canada.

These are all the photos for today. I hope you have enjoyed them. Next time I will show photos from Point Roberts, WA. A small city belonging to the to the US under the state of Washington but is completely surrounded by the ocean and Canada. Please don't forget to share with your friends and family members!
