A sunny afternoon at Burnaby Lake Regional Park in Burnaby near Vancouver, Canada

About this photo: On a wonderful sunny afternoon on one of my days off in March I decided to go for a walk at Burnaby Lake Regional Park which is only about 5 minutes driving from our place. It was a beautiful bright afternoon and the sun was getting a bit lower already helping with the colours in this scene.

The shot was taken from the wooden walkway on the water looking East. I liked the bright coloured grass leading to the view of the buildings which are near Lougheed Mall in Burnaby and the mountains in the distance. Th

Some information on Burnaby Lake Regional Park: Burnaby Lake Regional park is located in the city of Burnaby which is a part of the Greater Vancouver area and about 5 minutes driving from my place. This park includes a beautiful lake, a lot of hiking trails and is a great spot for bird watchers. Burnaby Lake Regional park is one of the best spots in the Vancouver area for bird watching, you may find great blue herons, bald eagles, belted kingfishers, osprey and the rare green heron and much more. In the summer time you can rent a canoe to have a closer look at the ducks, beavers and marsh-dwelling turtles.

There are 4 places where you park your car and start your walk. You can circle the lake for example which is about 19km (12mi). On the way you'll find the Wildlife Rescue Association or BC with a beautiful garden that's home to many wild birds. On the North side of the lake is the Nature House which is open in the summer for displays, talks and interpretive nature classes. The fresh air, outdoor exercise, city views, and plenty of wildlife of the two and four-legged variety make this a great spot to enjoy.

Burnaby Lake was created by a glacier 12,000 years ago and its shores were home to sawmills in the late 1800's. Now it is a beautiful protected area for us to enjoy. (Info from the Burnaby City Parks website).
