Jeka Stojanovic Closeup

This is a photo of Jeka Stojanovic at the GreaTaste "GUESS Jeans" Meetup.

Lions Gate B&W Tower

On Jan 11, 2015 I went on my first photo-walk with the Van City Free Capture Photography Meetup group. We were aiming to capture a sunrise but instead we ended up getting a lot of fog which made for some great photo opportunities. This is a picture of the main tower of the Lions Gate Bridge. You can see the rest of the images from this photo-walk here https://500px.com/xwiechers/sets/lionsgatebridge

Bell Building Vancouver

Downtown Vancouver

Vancouver BC buildings in the downtown core Burrard and Georgia st. This image is an HDR of three images. The angle was wide so I corrected to straighten it up. The fog of that day created a great atmosphere but the traffic on the street was ruining the shot. So I blended the image with a vertical motion blur to remove the distraction of the street

Vancouver Fountain of the Pioneers

Sacred Heart Church - Johnstown, Nova Scotia

Sacred Heart Church in Johnstown, Nova Scotia. The Church sits on top of a hill overlooking the Bras d'Or Lake. It first opened it's doors to its Christian community on November 8,1891

Jesus - God's Greatest Gift to the World

This is a combination of two images. A sunset in my hometown and a crucifix that I took a picture of in Nova Scotia

Sunset At Vancouver II

This is just a fun combination of two of my other pictures. One is the Sunset at Vancouver and the other one is the Seagulls with the moon as a background.

Vancouver Fire and Ice

Van Dusen Gardens Bridge

Mystical Forest

Hunted Park

Graveyard Tree

Mystical Glowing Flower

Four Seasons Forest

Mystical Sundial

Sundial from Van Dusen Gardens turned into a medieval mystical image. This sundial was in a plain garden, the pedestal was green and the sundial was a bit boring. So I decided to have some fun with it.

911 vs 9.11

Good vs Evil. It is amazing how the same sequence of numbers can have such a different meaning. In one of them a symbol of assistance, hope and safety while the other one terror, sadness, and fear.

PEI Lawn Chair

I Command You to Rise

I saw these kids playing by the fountain. The fountain would drop in pressure and rise again. They were pretending to command the water to rise.

Waterfalls III

Chinese Pagoda

Gold Leaf on Stone

Purple Pine with Stars

Closeup of a pine tree branch with water dew drops left behind by a heavy fog. The water drops have reflections of the pine tree and have a jewel-like sun burstColor changed to purple.

Frosty Bench

Mount St. Helens

I was with my family visiting Mount St. Helens. I was amazed at the destructive power of the mountain's famous eruption of May 18, 1980. But more impressive was seeing how nature was rebuilding the environment around the destruction. I thought the shot exemplified nature's ability to rebuild itself. I liked how the log led my eyes to the mountain as if it was pointing out the culprit of such devastation while the new flowers next to it were the focal point of the shot.

Gentian Speedwell II

Garden Steps with Railing

Garden steps in one of the trails at Van Dusen Gardens. image focuses on four steps inviting the viewer to walk on them. There is a natural handrail made out of a tree trunk. The steps are made of stone and have a very low profile. the steps are surrounded by greenery

Water Lily

Moon and Seagulls

In the original photo the image of the moon was too small. So I replaced it in the same location with an image of the moon from NASA. Other than that the shot is as captured.

Red Fruit Blue Tree

Playground on Mars

Photo taken on a foggy night. The background is a soccer field floded with fog. Changed the tone to a copper tone.

VanDusen Gardens Trees

VanDusen Gardens Trees. The trees had no leaves but the branches created a snow-fall-like of colours. I love the mood of the shot. I used a cartoon effect to make it more painterly-like

Tree B&W Copper Toned

Rusted Chains Securing Water Tank

Vertical Chain showing 5 links. The chain has been weathered and it contains rust. The chain has been captured up-close. The chain is securing a water tank that also has rust in it.

Grouse Mountain Tree Trunk on Spotlight

Peaceful scene of two chopped tree trunks. The sunglight is coming through some of the low level cloud or myst acting as a spotlight for the scene. Tree trunks are surrounded by a forest
