A Snow Covered Footbridge

A Snow Covered Footbridge

As the first few flakes of snow fall today in Freiburg, here is a shot where more than a few have already fallen in Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver. If this bridge has a name, I don't know it but it sits overlooking the Quarry Gardens.

A totally different feel indeed from the photo I posted yesterday.

I was staying not far from the park and was able to get over there, trudge around and spend half a day taking pictures. Unsurprisingly, there were a few other photographers doing the same.

Queen Elizabeth Park is the highest spot in Vancouver proper so the snow actually stayed snow for a while. I went downtown after that and it was entirely different there - sleet and rain, no standing snow at all. It was more like a slurpy falling from the sky. Altogether an ugly scene.

Two days later, the snow had entirely melted away. That's the reality of winter in Vancouver. If it snows you'd better capture it quick because it's never usually enough to cover the ground and, even if it is, it'll be gone in a day or two.

I think this photo of a snow covered rose is a more accurate view of winter snows in Vancouver. In fact, I actually called that post Winter, Vancouver Style.

My other photos of snow(!) can be found in the gallery.
