Atop Maxwell Mountain

A few years ago we spent almost a week of our summer vacation on Salt Spring Island (British Columbia, Canada). A highlight for us (literally) was a drive up Maxwell Mountain.

At the top of the mountain is a long guardrail along which you can get some stunning views of the surrounding land and seascape. Here are some of the shots I captured one sunny day in August of 2012.
