Somewhere in the middle of the way to Whistler,during a relaxing rest stop.
Whistler, British Columbia
Whistler is a Canadian resort town in the southern Pacific Ranges of the Coast Mountains in the province of British Columbia, Canada, approximately 125 km (78 mi) north of Vancouver and 36 km (22 mi) south of the town of Pemberton. Incorporated as the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW), it has a permanent population of approximately 9,965, plus a larger but rotating "transient" population of workers, typically younger people from beyond BC, notably from Australia and Europe.
Over two million people visit Whistler annually, primarily for alpine skiing and snowboarding and, in summer, mountain biking at Whistler-Blackcomb. Its pedestrian village has won numerous design awards and Whistler has been voted among the top destinations in North America by major ski magazines since the mid-1990s. During the 2010 Winter Olympics, Whistler hosted most of the alpine, Nordic, luge, skeleton, and bobsled events, though freestyle skiing and all snowboarding events were hosted at Cypress Mountain near Vancouver.
2010 Winter Olympics
Whistler was the Host Mountain Resort of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralympic Games, the first time the IOC has bestowed that designation on a community. Whistler hosted the alpine technical and speed events, the sliding events at Fitzsimmons Creek, the Nordic events in the nearby Callaghan Valley and all the Paralympic events except the opening ceremonies, sledge hockey and wheelchair curling.
The Whistler Olympic and Paralympic Village (commonly referred to as the Athlete's village) housed around 2,400 athletes, coaches, trainers and officials. Post-games, the site has been turned into a new residential neighbourhood Cheakamus Crossing

Good morning dear friend

mountains covered by snow in the background
I like the little boat on the surface of the
water like a toy a child
simple but nice and pleasant
the atmosphere is so peaceful and calm
I am feeling being into the framing
have a nice day

Good Morning Danos,
I remember Whistler for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games so I was already aware of the beautiful and spectacular scenery but, here it is without most of its snow! It is still spectacular! I'm sure you just gazed at this, for a while, taking in all the magic and, perhaps, waiting a little for the boat to reach optimum location, before you took a shot.
Very nicely composed.
It seems you had a wonderful trip around this scenic country and very interesting.
Have a great day,
papagolf21 (83986) 2014-03-24 1:37
Bonjour, cher Danos,
Grands espaces qui donnent le vertige. La présence d'un bateau donne la dimension de l'environnement.
Très bon cadrage pour valoriser le charme d'ensemble.
jurek1951 (40949) 2014-03-24 1:43
a splendid photo with excellent composition and attractive lights, great depth and details, superb shot, nice landscape,
Fis2 (83138) 2014-03-24 1:52
I like frame and colors.
Have a nice day
ikeharel (54087) 2014-03-24 1:59
I guess if one whistle in this beautiful fjord , can be heard with a great echo...
Fabulous nature's scene, small hut on watterfront, a lone boat and magnificent forest on the slopes.
made excelent choice when stopped for a great POV.
Have a nice new week,
dip (23528) 2014-03-24 2:45
για μένα αυτή είναι μία κλασική φωτογραφία από αυτήν την όμορφη χώρα,
πολύ ωραία η φωτογραφία με πολύ καλή ευκρίνεια και υπέροχα χρώματα,
το καραβάκι και το κτήριο με την κοκκινωπή σκεπή είναι δύο πολυ ωραίες λεπτομέρειες που ομορφαίνουν τη σύνθεση,
subhendu_bagchi (25396) 2014-03-24 3:09
what a magnificent piece of nature is here. I like your composition a lot with those mountains at back with blue water at middle. That hut at FG added a lot to it. Very well composed photo with nice picture quality. Tfs.
Romano46 (16584) 2014-03-24 3:44
una proposta interessante, sia per il posto poco conosciuto che per la bella composizione.
Piacevola la saturazione del colore.
Ciao e buona settimana
pierrefonds (55676) 2014-03-24 4:21
The wideness of the lake is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the coloursd of the mountains. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.
ourania (28278) 2014-03-24 8:21
πανέμορφο τοπίο, η υποβλητικότητα, η καθαρότητα και η ηρεμία του προκαλούν δέος. Νου αρέσει πολύ η απλότητα της περιγραφής, το βάθος και το ενδιαφέρον που δημιουργούν το σπιτάκι και το σκάφος. Ωραία τα σχήματα των βουνών και υπέροχα τα βαθιά χρώματα που τονίζονται από την αντίθεση του απαλού ουρανού. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ και χρόνια πολλά για αύριο!
kato (11630) 2014-03-24 11:04
You're capturing well this landscape by a good angle and very excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see Whistler in which is surrounded the calm/clean lake and mountain range with snow. It's good at color contrast between blue lake and deep green mountains. And, the sailing boat on lake draws out a good impact.
Subhogen (4065) 2014-03-24 11:34
Spectacular view of nature. I like the way the boat looks so tiny almost lost in this vast panorama. Love those snow covered green hills as an attractive backdrop for the blue lake. Excellent shot with natural colours and light. Thanks for sharing.
saxo042 (37054) 2014-03-24 12:20
A very impressive view over this fantastic landscape. A fine capture with pleasant colours.
lousat (73853) 2014-03-24 15:23
Hi Danos,what a scenery,a great memory from your canadian trip,absolutely beautiful the large view and the quality,i like it!!Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
nikkitta (13921) 2014-03-24 16:01
Good informative note of this amazing place, impossing snow overed mountains, very blue waters and great composition litle house and boat to balance the capture
Good work about BC, congrats
jcpix (12508) 2014-03-24 18:40
I remember well the images seen on t.v. during the Olympics, and this picture goes right along side the beauty displayed spanning the events. Nature can sure put on a pleasing show, and even without a main attraction, there's a lot to behold in a setting such as this. It looks both rugged and peaceful, and taken at a time where there is still snow to accent the mountain tops. A well composed section of land, this certainly makes for a pleasant rest stop! Enjoy the new day. All the best.
elenimavrandoni (14241) 2014-03-24 18:45
Δάνο, να μια πολύ ομορφη θέα...συγκλονιστικά τα βουνά και πολύ ομορφη η τοποθεσία..η αντίθεση που δημιουργεί το νερο με τον ογκο του βουνου ειναι συναρπαστική!!
μα εισαι στον Καναδά???
jmdias (53487) 2014-03-25 2:02
very calm landscape with the small pier and boat like personages. excellent details shown , nice job.
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-03-25 4:42
I have heard that British Columbia has plenty of beautiful spots and it is a paradise for photographers.
I like this one a lot! The composition gains much from some details like the boat on the lake or red roofed house. Lovely landscape and well presented.
Thanks for sharing
mirosu (12754) 2014-03-25 5:29
Good afternoon Danos,
IMO British Columbia is one of the most beautiful states in Canada. And you have captured its beauty in excellent way. Superb view over nice blue lake water to majestic, partly white mountains. All in very good light from excellent viewpoint.
Very well done.
tedesse (25047) 2014-03-25 8:19
Great view of this beautiful mountainous landscape.
Good POV and composition, nice colors, good sharpness.
adramad (36261) 2014-03-25 8:54
Superb landscape that unifies blue and calm waters of the lake, with the splendid mountains covered with lush vegetation, the remains of snow to the charm of the same, that cabin in the bottom of the picture and the small boat are two lovely touches.
Nice color, in these natural tones.
Also both sharpness, such as lighting are great.
Well taken photo. I Like
Enjoy a nice day.
eldancer1 (26036) 2014-03-25 8:57
Now I wish I visited this place when I like in Portland, Oregon. Beautiful capture of this scene with good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
clic (14576) 2014-03-25 16:48
Geis sou Danos
Eventhough I live in Canada, I never went to Shistler!
My son goes once in a while for skiing.
Those mountains are fabulous in size and shapes. Accept my congratulations for the natural deck, at right, that conveys a beautiful visual balance compared to the huge scenery.
mcmtanyel (11571) 2014-03-25 19:47
I remember going to Whistler! This is a very nice photo that captures the feel of the place quite successfully.
abmdsudi (41152) 2014-03-25 22:22
Quite scenic fjord, excellent composition as this arrangement looks great as does the fg and the lush backdrop. Great lighting, detail, rich colouring
and contrast, Indeed a very interesting timely shot Congrats, TFS
fabbs99 (16147) 2014-03-25 22:51
This is really a very cool landscape shot with vivid colors.The mountains dotted with snow capped tops and the lake with blue waters make this scene very special.Very well captured.TFS.
RhodieIke (11512) 2014-03-26 1:00
Super shot with the lone boat and house in amongst the super lake and mountains. Splendid Pov, well managed, Tfs, my friend.
Apurba20 (984) 2014-03-26 4:07
The view is remarkable. The water and the mountains are such a delight to see. The boat and the hut on the edge give a fantastic idea of the magnificence.
mohammad_H (8919) 2014-03-26 4:58
Magnificent beach with calm sea You look at the foreground, the background depth, attractive
Have a nice day
Didi (55465) 2014-03-26 5:05
Beautiful view indeed
I suggest you to make panoramic large version
I can suggest you a simple software for making a stich with three pictures : I began with Autostitch.
ChrisJ (95080) 2014-03-26 8:00
I like the wide angled panoramic format. The boat makes a fine secondary focal point after the pier and shelter shed with the red roof at right, which also contrasts superbly against the blue water. The snow capped peaks make a nice backdrop. Tfs!
macjake (53952) 2014-03-26 12:10
yes, this is a very scenic drive up along the HWY to Whistler.
However, its been a very dangerous road too, many people have died from car accidents.
For the Olympics in 2010, they did alot of safety construction and re-worked the hwy....today its much much safer to drive.
this is just one of the many views along the way, easy to see why you'd want to stop here :)
yes, my girlfriend Tosca and I will be in Greece in late May. Don't have any specific dates yet, but it'll probably be around May 15th or so. Going to Santorini, Athens, and some other places :)
I'll be in touch with you!
Kielia (23013) 2014-03-27 9:18
what a fascinating photo! The composition is really successful. I like your approach on this already well known landscape a lot. My compliments!
Graal (95974) 2014-03-27 10:58
interesting and nice landscape with the mountains in BG and alone boat on the lake. Good shot and informations. Well done photo.
Have a nice evening.
UlfE (14641) 2014-03-27 11:25
A beautifullandscape and a really well-composed photo of it. In particular the little house and the boat are well-positioned. Some snow still there on the mountain-sides is an extra bonus. TFS and have a nice evening!
mesutilgim (81320) 2014-03-27 12:40
Hello dear Danos,
Another topclass capture from Canada.

Lovely composition and nice, saturated colors make this one very pleasant capture. Have a nice week-end :)
mkamionka (29732) 2014-03-28 7:36
Beautiful mountain panorama. I like very much the boat which appears here as being very small and the tiny red kiosk which looks so pretty set against the blue water. Very impressive view, great POV to present it in all its glory.
Have a great weekend,
geoant68 (331) 2014-03-28 8:44
συναρπαστική παρουσίαση του κόλπου με την μικρή καλύβα στην άκρη και το διερχόμενο σκάφος στ΄αριστερά να μας δείχνει το μεγαλείο της φύσης,από πλευράς μεγεθών.Τα τελευταία χιόνια είναι μια ευχάριστη πινελιά στο κάδρο,
marina7 (8051) 2014-03-28 12:41
lovely place! The snow on the peaks gives the picture a bit chilly feel. Beautiful green mountains contrast nicely with the blue of the sea. Relaxing indeed!
omid266 (3637) 2014-03-29 21:11
Hi Danos ,

breathtaking views and a peaceful atmosphere! Some relaxing days at this place would be pleasant. Excellent composition with the small house at the right place, the boat adds interest to this scene, well done!
krzychu30 (15348) 2014-04-02 0:52
beauty of Canadian nature is undeniable!

cornejo (29287) 2014-04-10 11:05
Hello Danos, very good view of this beautiful lake with beautiful mountains in the background, very well captured with a great POV with excellent and beautiful photography. A beautiful picture of an interesting place. Very good sharpness, depth, light, color and quality. A great job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy weekend.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
jacquest (18385) 2014-04-11 3:49
I like this relaxing scene combining water and mountains. The small schack is well placed in the image and the small boat adds some movement. The filtered light gives a special mood.
josepmarin (57623) 2014-04-12 4:12
what a fantastic wild landscape, the mountains are breathtakingly beautiful, and the lake inspires a great peace and calmness.
The composition mixes efficiently the grand beauty of this place, and the "human" elements, as the hut, the wharf, and the boat.
I like the aesthetical level of the image.
Cricri (102973) 2014-04-13 4:10
Bon format pano de ce splendide paysage aux montagnes spectaculaire, la cabane au bord de l'eau, la présence du bateau, bonne lumière et couleurs
mvdisco (17674) 2014-04-13 7:46
Beautiful Canadian landscape in BC. (Whistler)
Nice point of view and great details of this lovely place,
Magnifiques montagnes rocheuses et composition,
Excellent tone of colors and light.
very well done...
Angshu (55035) 2014-04-16 2:52
This is beautiful landscape...so Rockies!
The water is blue and nestled around it are the hill mountains. The small hut for sure is a great focal point thanks to the rusted roof which contrasts with the blue water.
ebingul (1898) 2014-04-16 4:37
Very beautifully composed shot of this amazing landscape.Light could have been more favourable though.Well done and best regards.
Waylim (25172) 2014-04-21 20:47
Classic beauty of Canadian landscape, so serene and unspoil. the boat and house give a little glimps of human presence. Otherwise all natural and beautiful. Excellent composition and good quality shot.
