My Five Favorites from Vancouver

I really love Vancouver! It’s one of those places I always heard about… but I always discounted what was said because it was generally said by Canadians, who, unbeknownst to me, actually knew what the heck they were talking about.

Of the limited shooting I got to do while I was there, I was very happy it was stormy and rainly, since that’s the way it’s supposed to be up thataway. The first one is of the science museum, and I felt like it was a giant Tesla coil harnessing the power of the storm, or perhaps driving it. The others are scattered around everywhere from the picture perfect Stanley Park to the other side of the bridge on the way to Whistler.

  • I used to live in Vancouver so I know all of those places. πŸ˜› I’m planning on taking a trip back at the end of next month.

    I think it’s one of those cities that would be perfect if it didn’t have any people in it. xP

  • Nice if it didnt have any people in it…hahaaha….Nice!..

    Love Vancouver. Don’t think I have a single shot of it. Was there during the world fireworks competition. Thanks for the reminder of what I missed (haha)

    Great work as always!

  • Great photos!!

  • DEE

    I noticed all the shadows once I saw the swan.

  • Gail

    Vancover is a beautiful city we were privileged to visit once. Beautiful pictures, Trey. Really portrays how large the city is. I saved the one with a Swan as a Desktop Picture, hope you don’t mind. Thanks so much!!!! πŸ™‚

  • Barb

    I can almost feel the cold. Great clouds. I love dark, ominous clouds.

  • I can’t believe I’m saying this to you…but I would have upped the contrast in the first picture. It looks a little washed out to me. However the picture(s) are, as always, beautiful.

  • I’m often in Vancouver with work and usually take my camera. It is a great place to get shots.

    And if you’re heading up to Whistler I’ll be keeping an eye open for some amazing landscapes from you. (Although I must admit I prefer Whistler in the Summer for hiking rather than the Winter for snow sports.)

  • Thanks! Gail – use the photo all you want as your desktop… that’s what they are there for! πŸ™‚

    I agree Michael about the people in the shots… !

    Fenraven – you are right. Don’t be afraid to give critical comments… I have a thick skin… I eat my tears and they make me stronger.

    Nick – I did not take my big rig up to Whistler… I hope to some day! πŸ™‚

  • Susan

    These are all beautiful – I had forgotten them!

  • Joe

    I lived in the NW for 17 years (Whidbey IS. WA) and visited Vancouver many times since I was mid-way between it and Seattle.

    Your pictures are quite creative and shows off the beauty of the Northwest.

  • This brought back some great memories when I travelled on the Rocky Mountaineer train from Vancover. I enjoy your pictures very much. Keep it up!

  • I love Vancouver. I go there at least once a year with work. Unfortunately I usually don’t bring a camera since I’m in the office most of the day.

  • wow! as a former vancouverite, I think you’ve really captured some of the essentials (especially the rainy part!)
    stunning images.

  • awesome – i love the boats — makes me think about Jessica Fletcher in cabot cove πŸ™‚

  • They are all perfect! Very vivid images! I think they would look really good printed on the paper with the brushstrokes embossed on it! (Except the science museum picture)

  • My town. Very cool to see it through your HDR eyes.

  • Shaku

    Went to Vancouver for the first time this summer and fell in love with the place. Did you manage to check out the Capilano?

  • Thanks! I did go to the Capilano — a great place all around!

  • i love them all but the swan on the lake in particular. you are a creative genius and i enjoy the world as you see it.
