Coal Harbour, Vancouver

It’s once again the time of year when the window cleaners arrive, and in order to gain access to the sides of the building, they remove some of the glass from the rooftop observation deck.

This seemed like an excellent chance to give my brand new 16–35mm lens a tryout, after the old one was deemed beyond repair from excessive exposure to the Burrard Inlet about a month ago. (Even better, it comes with Canon’s new centre-pinch lens cap — so much easier to use!)

This is a shot looking out over the Coal Harbour Marina to Stanley Park, the Lions Gate Bridge, and the North Shore mountains. Some unusual clouds at sunset add some interest to the sky after what was a pretty cloudless day!

West Hastings Street is visible at the far left of the photo, and the seawall path can be seen looping around the marina — this continues on to Stanley Park, in the middle distance of the photo, and far beyond.
