O Canada: Your Best Canada Day Photography
Everywhere you look across this great country, our national colours are on display. Check out these amazing photographs from our readers!
Wrapped in the flag
“My 14-year-old daughter Madison is an aspiring photographer,” shares Jacqueline Biollo of Beaumont, Alta. “She snapped this photo of me in a canola field just outside Beaumont. We’re both proud Canadians!”
Up, up and away
Lillian Kennedy of Maces Bay, N.B., shares this great shot that she captured at the balloon festival in Sussex, N.B. “The balloon festival is an annual event that draws lots of crowds from right across Canada,” says Lillian.
Taking a tour
“While on vacation, I captured this interesting shot on Île d’Orléans near Quebec City,” explains Robert Freeman of Toronto. “After taking a bus and a taxi to get to the island, I rented a bike and rode around snapping photos of the amazing homes, including this one.”
“The West Coast is pretty laid back, as you can see from this photo of the owner of a scooter rental business in Tofino, B.C.,” says Mike Lane of Saanichton, B.C.
A stirring tribute
Kathy Swanson of Red Deer, Alta., writes,” I snapped this photo on Hwy 11 just outside of nearby Sylvan Lake. Each year, a group puts up Flags of Remembrance all along the fence posts. This was the sight in 2014; each flag represented 10,000 people lost in war. It was a very moving sight.”
A bicycle built for three
Another great shot from Lillian Kennedy of Maces Bay, N.B., this one of (from left) Lillian, her twin sister Mary and Mary’s husband Shusuke enjoying beautiful Prince Edward Island. “It was great fun riding the bicycle built for three along the bay while Shusuke had to pedal!” writes Lillian.
