A view of downtown Vancouver seen from Burnaby Mountain Park in Burnaby near Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada…processed in HDR
My sincere apologies for not being active on Flickr for quite some time. We’ve been busy mainly because my father in law passed away in June. Life is slowly getting back to normal, so I am trying to get a bit more active on Flickr again.
About this photo: One of my favourite place to go to for photos is Burnaby Mountain Park near Vancouver which is about 10-15 minutes driving for me. The views are always beautiful and the light makes it look different every time. In the summer time I don’t have much time to go at sunrise and sunset, but sometimes the light is pretty nice during the day as well. This day was pretty nice and as I am walking around I happened to look towards downtown Vancouver and spotted this view with the bench. I used my zoom lens to zoom up on the bench with the city behind. This bench is a great spot to relax for a while and enjoy the views!

Some information on Burnaby Mountain: Burnaby is a city which belongs to the Greater Vancouver area and is about 10-15 minutes from downtown Vancouver. Burnaby Mountain is one of the beautiful places to visit in Burnaby and is located near the Simon Fraser University. The views over the mountains, the Burrard Inlet, downtown Vancouver and Indian arm from up here make it such a great place. This is a fairly popular destination popular visitors and locals alike. The green hillside offers room to throw a frisbee or send a kite soaring. There is a network of trails which offer a variety of hiking, walking and jogging options. There is also a playground tucked away in the upper hillside.
The Centennial Pavilion area features the Rose Garden, with its vibrant colours in season and a great variety of roses. Nearby is the acclaimed Horizons restaurant and two majestic totem poles, a reminder of the community’s proud native heritage. Towering over the distant city are the tall Kamui Mintara (Playground of the Gods) sculptures. The Kamui Mintara is more than a dozen carved poles created by Japanese sculptors Nuburi Toko and his son, Shusei. These impressive sculptures commemorate the goodwill between Burnaby and its sister city, Kushiro, Japan.
Burnaby Mountain is a great place to enjoy in any season as there are always the beautiful views over the city, the mountains, the Burrard Inlet and Indian Arm (a coastal fjord of about 18km/11.25mi long).
