Sunset over Esquimalt Lagoon - Photo by Wm. Bellwood.

Not that we really have to tell you, but Vancouver Island is a pretty amazing place to call home all year round and whether it be a beautiful sunrise, sunset, windstorm, or snowfall (crossing our fingers to get some this season), we can always count on our fans and professional photographers to send in some amazing photos!

On average, Victoria Buzz receives 100 or more photos each month, and we do our best to post them all when we can, and when we can’t, please know that we are very thankful for making us one of your top places on Vancouver Island to go when submitting or viewing photos.

Here are some of the top photos sent in last year between January 1st, 2015 to June 30th, 2015:
