Really enjoyed creating these Cosmic Space fractals!  Alternate universes and distant galaxies makes cosmic space art very exciting.

Planets are born in clusters and gravitational waves slowly pull them apart as they begin their orbits around distant suns.

Cosmic Space Fractal 3
Galactic Home Star

The journey to the end of the Universe brings us back to our Galactic homeland.  Perhaps from the beginning we were never meant to go so far into the stars.

The above fractals were a created using a combination of Apophysis and SpaceFX apps.

I really enjoy making fractals.  If you like them too please visit my other web pages with lots of fractal art below:

Enos Lake hike

Enos Lake, Nanoose

Nature time this week included a Enos Lake hike in Nanoose on Vancouver Island.  Easy to access the trail and the hike to the lake is around 30 minutes.

Enos Lake Hike 2
Easy hike downhill

The trail is downhill to the lake and is in good shape.  Not many people were present which was a real bonus for enjoying the quiet nature.

We took the wrong turn on the trail and ended up by a large beaver pond that was buzzing with insects!

There were lots of the Common whitetail dragonflies flying around.  They are amazing fliers and fun to watch.  During the heat of the day we were lucky the mosquitoes were scarce!

Enos Lake Hike Lily Pads
Water lilies (Nymphaeaceae)

Lots of frogs were croaking as well.  They would probably love to hang out on these lily pads.

Enos Lake nature path

We found the right path to the lake.  It is a bit more challenging with lots of exposed roots from the large Douglas Fir and Red Cedar trees.  It’s all downhill to the lake from here!

Winding our way down the deep woods ravine to Enos Lake

I really love the nature in these deep woods ravines.  Lots of big trees and knarley landscapes.  We see glimpses of the lake below now.

A beautiful day for a short hike at Moorecroft Park!  The ocean and mountain views are magnificent.  Spring is in the air.

On the Eastern side of Vancouver Island this park offers views of the British Columbia mainland and Georgia Strait.  Great place for kayaking or paddle boarding.

Rocky shores

The shores and beach is very rocky making it a great place to warm up in the sunshine.  Also a great place to find some privacy and serenity.

Arbutus tree

Many Arbutus trees are present on the shoreline.  This indicates some major wind in the winter months.  Today there is a slight breeze which is perfect to check out the inland trails.

Spring forest moss

Throughout the forest bright green moss envelopes the ground.  After a wet winter this moss is doing very well.  The deep forest is so peaceful.

Moorecroft Park is easy to hike and there is a visitor map right at the parking lot.  Take the time to visit this small but beautiful natural park on Vancouver Island.

Located in the Pacific Rim National Park on Vancouver Island is a beautiful piece of nature – Florencia Bay beach.  A short walk in to the beach brings you into a natural paradise of sun and sand.  I have been visiting this beach for many years and it is still very untouched and natural.

Lots of driftwood washes up here and some artistic folks enjoy the peaceful atmosphere to create their masterpieces.  I was very impressed with the above driftwood man.  He stood out on the beach and appeared as a watcher of all activities.

A perfect beach for a long walk while the tide is low.  Lots of interesting shells, rocks and sea creatures to be seen.  A fantastic beach to go play outside!

I hope you get a chance to visit your favorite beach this weekend.  Nature soothes and heals the tired human soul.  Being beside or in the ocean is my favorite place to be.

It was a beautiful spring day down at the Nanaimo Harbor.  The blues from the ocean and sky were spectacular.  Lots of small shops were open and people were enjoying the sunshine.

A nice seawall walk at the waters edge takes you as far as you wish to walk.  A peaceful and serene place in the middle of a city.  There are lots of benches to sit on to enjoy a coffee and the view.

Bastion

Standing tall in the harbor is the Bastion – built by the Hudson’s Bay Company to defend its coal-mining resources.  We couldn’t go inside the building since it was shut for the winter.  This gives us a reason to come back again!
