BC Place is a stadium located in downtown Vancouver, and was built as part of the preparations for Expo '86.
Until 2010 it had the world’s largest air-supported dome, with the stadium being pressurised inside to support the weight of the roof. It has since been converted to have a retractable roof, along with other renovations.
This was taken from the Olympic Village on the other side of False Creek from the downtown core. The area, formerly industrial areas and car parks, was developed as part of the 2010 Winter Olympics, and now has many residential buildings, restaurants and shops. The dock in the foreground provides access to water taxis which provide a quick route to downtown areas as well as Granville Island.
Happy Christmas to all my contacts, thanks for your comments and favourites over the past year, and of course your inspirational photographs!blue hour downtown reflections skyline vancouver waterfront
