Vancouver Harbor

Just returned from a long weekend celebrating my brother-in-law's birthday in Vancouver, Canada. I took this shot at the inner harbor as we waited to board a paddlewheeler cruise -- perfect weather that day. Even the locals were excited about the weather they had last weekend. We complain about the heat and humidity here on the Gulf Coast, but from what we heard from people around Vancouver, this was the nicest weather they've had since the fall. Kim checked the weather in Vancouver today just for fun -- 55 degrees and rain. Nikon D200, 40mm, f/9 at 1/320 sec; colors are not tweaked too much here, pretty much straight out of camera -- just a little Topaz Adjust in the trees and boats.


  1. Beautiful shot Steve! Your photo makes we want to be in that place at that time!


  2. I have often referred to these types of photos as "postcard" photos. But, who cares what they might be used for as long as they are good photographs. I like the colors and composition. Nice photo.

  3. Larry has it right. This is a "postcard" photo. I like the colors, the vertical lines with th reflection and your framing of the subject. A really nice job on this one.
