The View From Here
Well, it’s actually not the view from where I am currently, since these photos were all taken at my previous apartment, but that title just had a catchy ring to it, so….
This is going to be a very photo heavy post, but the other day I was scrolling through my phone and realized that I have a lot of photos of the view from our old apartment, and it seemed like a compilation of them was in order. These might not even be all the photos I took, but they were all the ones I could find in my disorganized hard drive!
I’m not going to say that I miss living at that place, because obviously there are reasons why we left, but it really was a gorgeous view from our living room window. The building was built on a hill, and our window faced West overlooking the valley, which meant we got to enjoy some beautiful sunsets. Unfortunately the view was the best thing about the place though, and that’s not enough of a reason to stay somewhere!
Anyways, here are some photos from the past year, spanning from last June to this past March- it’s amazing how the weather can drastically change the view from day to day, isn’t it?
June 9, 2018: This one was from when I was in the basement apartment, so a slightly different angle. It kind of looked like a tornado started forming, but it never fully formed or touched down.
July 2, 2018: Two photos- one from early afternoon and one from the evening of the day I moved into the upstairs apartment.

August 8, 2018: One of the first days when the smoke from the BC wildfires started blowing across the province- not the worst we were to see, unfortunately!
August 13, 2018: One day of rain and a blessed relief of the smoke, but the smoke blew right back in the next day.
August 15, 2018: Two days later, and it looked like the apocalypse was upon us. That was a strange day as it was so hazy we had to turn the lights on indoors, and even the birds weren’t singing, casting an eerie calm.
August 16, 2018: The next day the smoke had lessened, and lost it’s orange glow. Thankfully the smoke started lessening shortly after this!

September 9, 2018: One of the most enjoyable things was watching the valley turn colours in the Fall.
Sept 10, 2018: In just one day, the leaves had changed colour so much more, but the lighting on this day also cast an autumnal hue in the image.
September 13, 2018: The first snow of the year, that quickly melted, but always seems to come too early!
September 15, 2018: Another snowfall a couple of days later!
September 21, 2018: And a week later, this heavier snowfall!
October 18, 2018: One of the most beautiful sunsets of our time there.
November 29, 2018: And this sunset too…

February 7, 2019: The fog off the reservoir always looked so cold on Winter days like this!
