Fisherman Wharf and Sunset - Victoria, BC (Part 8)

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 sunset and night time Victoria photos from this trip, use this link. To view all of my day 7 photos, use this link.

After visiting Chemainus, I headed back to Victoria, BC. Today I have photos from Fisherman Wharf and some sunset shots in Downtown Victoria. These are my last few photos from Victoria, BC. The next day, I took a ferry to Vancouver, BC.

Message from the Photographer: Happy Martin Luther King Day!

That shadow is me. This was my first photo from Fisherman Wharf. The fish and chips I ate there was very very good. Just looking at this photo still reminds me of it and I am getting hungry. LOL With that said, taking a photo of the food never crossed my mind...

Canada geese (Branta canadensis). I thought they made a nice composition. Sadly it was kind of hard to frame up the shot as the pier was a bit wobbly.

Tried to reframe my shot, but those Canada geese (Branta canadensis) swam away...

When framing up the shot, I noticed the polarizer made a dark strip of light in my shot while I was rotating it. I thought it would make a nice shot if I rotated it so the shadow highlighted the seagull. 

More photos from the wharf.

Back in Downtown Victoria for a few sunset shots. A photographer from the day before said the boat made a nice subject for sunset. I gave it a few shots.
