Fotoeins Friday: “Green park, 2016.001”

•   Foggy start to New Year’s Day 2016 in Vancouver.
•   Photo on 8am PST, 1 January 2016, at 696 West Cordova Street.
•   With 2016 as leap year, 8am on the first day of the year is expressed as 2016.001 in 3 decimal places; see details below.
•   The question this picture asks is: what will emerge from my head fog under first light.

366 days in a leap year multiplied by 23.934 hours per day gives 8760.017 hours in the 2016 calendar year. For the 8th hour on the first day, this is expressed as 8/8760.017 = 0.0009. This means 8am on 1 January 2016 can be expressed as 2016.001 to three decimal places. I made the photo above; this post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-7HT.

Marine fog streaming into Burrard Inlet, Vancouver, Canada, fotoeins.com

Fotoeins Friday: fall fog in Vancouver’s 1st Narrows

Marine fog is another indicator of fall or autumn in Vancouver, as cool moist air from the north makes its way over the warmer waters of Georgia Strait. The leading edge of the fog seems to breathe and pulsate with the “lungs” of the Strait. Streaming through First Narrows, the fog partly obscures the two towers of the Lions Gate Bridge, spilling into Burrard Inlet. In the foreground are Coal Harbour and the changing colours of deciduous trees in Stanley Park.

I made this image from Vancouver’s Canada Place on 7 October 2014 with the Canon 6D camera and the EF 50/1.4 prime-lens with the following settings: 1/500s, f/11, ISO200, 50mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com.

Vancouver under winter fog: the view from Cypress

Winter in Vancouver can mean the appearance of fog, as stationary moist air near the ground cools at night and condenses to form marine fog which creeps in from nearby Georgia Strait to blanket the area. At daybreak, the city struggles to get sun or warmth under the cool moist fog, whereas up over the fog on local mountains, it can be several degrees warmer under the bright sun.

From High View Lookout on Cypress Mountain, there are beautiful sweeping views of Vancouver, south to Washington State, and west across Georgia Strait to Vancouver Island. For more about the surrounding area, have a look at the Cypress Provincial Park website.

There is no public transport direct to the Cypress Mountain’s High View Lookout (indicated by pin C in the map below), although West Vancouver buses stop close enough for a 20- to 30-minute walk up to the lookout. The drive from downtown Vancouver (pin V) is about 20 to 30 minutes; click on the link “View Larger Map” below for specific directions.

I made the photos on 26 January 2014. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com.
