Being the third largest city in Canada, Vancouver, British Columbia has some great photo ops for cityscapes.
I don’t visit cities very often, so I really enjoyed making a number of cityscape images within walking distance of my sister’s place.
In a previous post, I shared an image I made on False Creek on a cloudy afternoon.
After that we went up to the Burrard Street Bridge to check out the view from there.
There are some impressive mountains behind those skyscrapers but you couldn’t see them at all for the cloud cover that day.
From the middle of the bridge, I made this image looking out towards English Bay.
What I was really looking forward to was the opportunity to do some night photography, but based on the cloud cover earlier in the day I wasn’t sure if it was going to work out.
But by early evening the clouds started to break up so off we went for the night shoot.
The first image was early in the evening when I was still scouting my location. I couldn’t resist the pink clouds!
Finally, when night arrived I made some images from under the Cambie Street Bridge.
I was surprised there was only one other photographer there, it’s a great location!
I’ve discovered that Vancouver has a lot more to offer than traffic jams and it’s especially enjoyable when you don’t have to drive at all.
I have to thank Colleen and Bassim for being such wonderful hosts and for taking me on the night photo shoot. I’m not sure I would have gone down there by myself!
