View from Gonzales Hill

While the Gonzales Observatory (pictured here yesterday) is itself worth a trip to the top of Gonzales Hill, the view is spectacular. Here, with the observatory behind us we are looking out over Foul Bay (left foreground) with Ross Bay beyond. The mountains barely visible on the left are the Olympics across the strait in the USA. The dark blue hills on the right background are in Metchosin, further along the west coast of Vancouver Island.

Beautiful shot. I am always amazed at how close the houses are standing at the waterline. Never afraid for a tsunami or a big gale.

It was worth the trek up the hill to capture this beautiful scene.

I love this view. I have cards by an artist that paints all the roofs blue. Can't remember her name.
