August Choices

As I wrote last week, "Every year I put together a calendar for friends and family, of photos I have published on this blog for the last year or so. However, it's always difficult to make decisions about which photos to use. I am hoping visitors to this blog will help out. Every day for the next few weeks I will publish three or four photos from a given month and hope that comments and choices made by visitors will help me make a final decision which photos to use in this year's calendar. As an incentive, I will offer an online downloadable/printable file of the calendar to anyone who helps me make a choice."

Thanks to everyone who has given me their opinions so far, and it really helps when you give reasons for your preference.

Below are my favorite August 2016 photos. There are four to choose from today. Like July, August is a good time to get out and enjoy the outdoors and these photos reflect the fact that Victoria is like a giant theme park in the summer. Two of these photos are of the Inner Harbour - after all, it's the heart of the city and is where most people hang out in the summer. The other two are both of Hatley Park. Which of these do you prefer?

They're all stunning. If I had to choose, I'd go with the castle.

Hands down the last one. That is just fabulous and says 'Victoria'!

An excellent shot of Hatley Castle and grounds. My second choice would be the Inner Harbour at night.
