Spending Time at Rocky Point Park Pier

The other day my partner was getting some physical therapy just down the block from Rocky Point Park in Port Moody, BC.  Rather then sit in the waiting room and read and since it wasn’t raining, I went on a little photo excursion to the pier in the park.

I thought of it as a bit of a photo recce as the lighting was good but not ideal and I didn’t have my tripod.  Here’s what I came up with for the 30 minutes or so I spent there.

These first two are looking along the pier North towards the mountains, the inlet and the end of the pier.  Black and white really suited this one as the colours, although nice, didn’t really add anything to the mood and actually took away from the subtle shading I was looking for.

This one uses the colour nicely with the camera balanced on the railing looking down along it.  You can see what kind of a gray day it was!

The next 3 are looking back toward the shore from various viewpoints along the pier.

In this first one, I liked the contrast between the hard white metal rails versus the softer lines of the wooden pier.

This next one really emphasizes the pier walkway ending in the little pagoda that is actually at the entrance to the pier.  I took it to play with using the “vanishing point” perspective to bring you into the picture.

This last one is just another vanishing point and hey, it kinda ends at the Canadian flag so that’s pretty cool.

Happy Rambling,

  1. I like the black and whites a lot better than the color. I think the color one doesn’t add anything to the photo. I like the “old” feel to the walkway that I feel from the B& W. wish I had water close by like that. fun for you!
