Besides the fact that the fall (autumn) pretty much marks the end of the warmth and the good weather of summer here in Vancouver, it does bring with it a kaleidoscope of colours that you just don't find in the outdoors any other time of the year.
Matched with clear blue skies and cool but comfortable temperatures, there was no reason for me not to jump on my bike this afternoon and peddle around the seawall to check out the wealth of fall photographic opportunities.
While I concentrated on the wealth of red, orange and yellow foliage for the majority of the day, my journey also took me past a great new public art display called A-maze-ing Laughter on English Bay beach by Chinese artist, Yue Minjun.
Further, journeying into Stanley Park led me to a stunning tree lined avenue featuring a thick carpet of fallen leaves – the best traditional fall scene I came across all day.
Finally, I spent around an hour snapping away on the sidelines of a rugby game at Brockton Oval. Just like last time I was out that way, the decent quality game ended up becoming a great opportunity for me to get in some sports photography practice.
I'm not sure who won in the end, but the Rowing Club home team were a couple of tries up at half time.
