Default Freighters on the Nod

Some more shots from Vancouver. As Vancouver is Canada’s major port on the Pacific, one can often see the ships waiting at anchor for their turn in the harbour. We were visiting my niece who lives on English Bay, in the cluster of high-rise just at the edge of Stanley Park. A great spot, I made full use of the 27th floor rooftop, great spot for looking out over the bay. The mountains were covered in clouds but it was sunny over the water.

This ship is the “Great Intelligence” and seems to be enjoying playing bumper boats...

Early evening

This one was from the rooftop, 2 second exposure, f8, ISO 800. Took advantage of the the sleeve of my leather jacket to steady the camera. My dear E-PL1 does get a bit noisy under these conditions and the few stuck pixels become noticeable. Oh well.

Counted 17 ships waiting. Have to admit that if we lived here, my wife could count on me being up on the roof every evening looking out over the bay.

Great shots. I think picture 3 is very dramatic. Depicts a vastness to the scene.

I like all those photos. The first one is probably my favorite with the bright white clouds contrasting with the blues in the scene.

What a beautiful city. One of our all-time favorite trips. There were a couple of evenings we went across the Lions Gate Bridge and had dinner at a great seafood restaurant on the cliffs overlooking the passageway and watched cruise ships that must have been departing for Alaska.

A very unique place compared to the geography in my part of the world.
