My first place after moving to Vancouver was at the corner of Robson and Cardero in the tower above the Blenz. Staring out at the sky and mountains from the window, I had the opportunity to take quite a few photos of the view over the course of the year I lived there.
Vancouver definitely has interesting and moody weather. These Vancouver photos illustrate all the different kinds of interesting weather we get here on the BC Coast: snow, fog, rain, sun and everything in-between.
The morning fog hanging over the Stanley Park and Coal Harbour after a week of dense fog in the city.
The perfect shade of blue sky on a clear, crisp summer day.
Different shades of clouds as the mysterious haze gradually colours over the blue sky.
A bright morning reveals a fresh dusting of snow on the North Shore Mountains.
After a fresh dump snow at sea level, the city of Vancouver grinds to a halt.
An inversion of clouds hangs below the North Shore Mountains and above the city of North Vancouver.
After a big storm, clouds blanket the North Shore Mountains and begin to burn off in the sun.
More misty mountaintops after a winter storm.
One of the few summer sunrises I managed to catch (I’m not a morning person). I love the outline of mountain’s ridgelines against the morning sky.
The November gloom sets in as the rainy season begins. The city remains socked in by gray clouds for most of the next 4 months. When the clouds occasionally break and the rains stop, the mountaintops are often dusted in fresh snow and Vancouverites pour out in the streets to get some Vitamin D.
In the winter dense fog can completely cover the city, dramatically reducing visibility.
One of my favourite things about Vancouver is how the clouds break up at in the late morning or afternoon after a storm. Then they bunch up on the North Shore Mountains, often creating explosive looking cloud pillars thousands of feet high.
This post was recently transferred over from my tumblog Slimdizzy. I hope you enjoyed these photos of Vancouver.
