Government House - Victoria, BC (Part 4)

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 viewing 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 Victoria photos from this trip, use this link. To view all of my day 5 photos, use this link.

Today I have part 3 of Victoria, BC. The photos are from Government House. This is the official residence of the Lieutenant governor of BC.

Here is a photo of a statue in the residence.

A bit ahead of schedule that day, I decided to shoot some macro shots in the garden. Here is one of a bumblebee. 

I went ahead and shot a few photos of flowers there.

I move to a different flower. I think the flower made a really nice symmetry.
