Fotoeins Friday: Canada Day morning over the Salish Sea

Canada celebrates its birthday annually on 1 July. Known as Canada Day, the 2016 version marks the 149th anniversary of 1867 Confederation, with the creation of the “Dominion of Canada” and four provinces of Ontario, Québec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia.

From 2015’s Canada Day, the photo above is first morning light on the downtown Vancouver skyline across Burrard Inlet (Salish Sea) from the Burrard Dry Dock Pier in North Vancouver. The bright vertical reflection comes from light striking the Private Residences at Hotel Georgia (at Howe and West Georgia). Both tower and reflection converge at the “white sails” of Canada Place, a focal point for Canada Day festivities in Vancouver. Prominent at the left are three red gantry cranes at Port of Metro Vancouver’s CenTerm container terminal facility.

I made the photo above at 543am on 1 July 2015 with the Canon EOS6D, 24-105 L-lens, and the following settings: 1/160s, f/14, ISO500, and 105mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-8wJ.

Fotoeins Friday: a view to a prospective summer

One of the most prominent landmarks in Stanley Park, the viewing area at Prospect Point looks over First Narrows. Appearing in green in the background at far right, the Lions Gate Bridge crosses Burrard Inlet and links the North Shore (North and West Vancouver) with the city of Vancouver. While five at the left are involved in a group-portrait selfie, the couple at centre and the bicyclist at right are looking up at an overhead seaplane that’s left Vancouver harbour. On the North Shore in the background, snow lingers on Crown Mountain (left), and the wind turbine pokes up over Grouse Mountain (right-centre).

I made this photo on 29 April 2016 with the Canon EOS6D, 24-105 zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/160s, f/11, ISO200, and 65mm focal-length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-8p5.

4 cities, 8 hours: New Year’s Day 2016 in Vancouver

I’ve photographed the greater Vancouver area in separate 16-hour “marathons” on Canada Day (1 July) over the last few years. With the length of a winter day halved to 8 hours, I made a similar photowalk on New Year’s Day 2015. For New Year’s Day 2016, conditions began with morning fog giving way to afternoon sun and a high temperature of +2C (upper-30s F). I traveled to four locations, covering 103 kilometres with public transport; see below.

3rd edition: 16-hour Canada Day marathon in Vancouver (2015)

Canada Day 2015.

16-plus hours, over 200 kilometres on the road, over 560 frames made.

For the 3rd consecutive year, I’ve embarked on another marathon to photograph some of the places and activities during Canada Day in the greater Vancouver area. In this 2015 edition, I’ve collected 20 photographs throughout the holiday, including photographs at sunrise and sunset. This year’s marathon follows my effort last year (2014) and the debut effort in 2013.

8 hours, New Year’s Day 2015 in Vancouver

I’ve photographed the greater Vancouver area in separate 16-hour “marathons” on Canada Day (1 July) in the last couple of years. Similarly, one way to crack open a brand new year is a shorter photowalk on New Year’s Day, with the length of a winter day halved to 8 hours of daylight. Very good conditions were forecast for New Year’s Day 2015 in Vancouver with mostly clear skies and a high of +6C (42F). I made the following 10 photographs from sunrise to sunset.
