Beyond Canada Place

Beyond Canada Place

I'm completely happy with the amount of decent shots that I was able to get from the top of the Guinness Building two weeks ago. This one is a much wider angle than the one I posted two days ago.

Here, Canada Place peeks into the frame as do the huge gantries at the port of Vancouver. The little streak in the middle is the seabus that runs from North Vancouver to downtown. I took the seabus the other day for the first time in ages. We were headed over to go snowboarding which, if you look at the mountainous background, is pretty close by for those of you not familiar with this town. In truth though, the mountain we were going to is way to the left of this photo. This is facing almost due north (maybe a little north east) and the mountain we were on is north west of where I took this. Still, it's only about fifteen minutes by car from downtown.

The view from the seabus is amazing and it's really neat to get a different viewpoint of the city that I live in. I'm always up high looking down and seeing a great panorama - which is amazing - but, for contrast, to be zooming along only a few feet above the water going past Stanley Park and watching the downtown recede takes me out of my normal perspective. I am very much a creature of habit and changing views now and again is needed, but too often forgotten.

Fuji Velvia 100, scanned, colour corrected, sharpened in Photoshop CS3.
