Fotoeins Friday: Tall geography in Vancouver’s CBD
These buildings all cluster around the highest point in the downtown (CBD1) peninsula of Vancouver on Canada’s west coast2. With the ground here at an elevation of over 30 metres (100 feet) above sea-level, these towers are a familiar sight to those who frequent the city centre, although there are other much taller buildings in the area. The buildings from left-to-right are, respectively: 701 West Georgia (formerly IBM Tower), Scotia Tower, Vancouver Block (with the clock tower), and Nordstrom.
2 also known as “The Left Coast”, the Pacific Northwest, or as I like to call it, the Canadian Southwest.
I made the photo above on 7 August 2015 with the Canon EOS 6D camera, EF 24-105 f/4L IS USM zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/200s, f/16, ISO400, and 24mm focal length. The photo above is corrected for a slight rotation (less than 2 degrees), for slight dodge-and-burn, and cropped slightly to place the “S” tower at the centre; the photo is not corrected for spherical or geometric distortion.
