Sail Reflections

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Canada Place, with its iconic white sails, is located in the heart of Vancouver’s downtown harbor front. We had finished our Alaskan cruise and we were staying in the Pan Pacific Hotel that is part of Canada Place. Whenever one sees images of Vancouver, the sails of Canada Place are front and forward and almost every tourist guide shows it's image. I tried very hard to shoot it from different angles and, while I managed to get a couple that I sort of liked, I wasn't happy. It wasn't until our last night that I spotted this reflection of Canada Place in the windows of the neighboring pier. While I had noticed this view before, it was the great light and clouds that made the shot for me.
