lions gate bridge

On this trip to Vancouver I wanted to concentrate on night shots of the Lion’s Gate Bridge. I walked from waterfront station and made sure I arrived in time for the blue hour.

The next night I went to prospect point viewpoint and got a different perspective of the bay and bridge.

It wasn’t long before a crowd of photographers lined up along the bridge to get this cliché shot so I went down beneath the bridge to get away from everyone and ended up getting some of my favorite shots of the weekend.

Vancouver Nightscapes

I’ve been wanting to spend more time in Vancouver lately mostly because it’s a short distance away from Victoria and it feels like a mini vacation. During my most recent visit I really wanted to concentrate on getting some panoramic’s of the skyline during the blue hour and was greeted with cloudless skies and great conditions.

It wasn’t till I got home and started editing did I see this object in the sky over the mountains,a freaking UFO! Well it sure looks like an alien saucer beaming a ray of light,really crazy! Don’t ask me what this is,i’m thinking a light flare from a passing plane or something…..or a UFO!
