Night Falls in Vancouver, BC, Canada
A view of downtown Vancouver seen from Burnaby Mountain Park in Burnaby near Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
About this photo: One of my favourite places to hang around with my camera around sunset is Burnaby Mountain Park near Vancouver which is about 10-15 minutes driving for me. It had rained in the morning and in the afternoon the sun was trying to come out. I went up to Burnaby Mountain with high hopes of a good sunset, but there was a layer of low clouds that didn’t make it happen. It was still a nice sunset, but nothing to write home about. The nicest views were after the sun had gone down and the city lights appeared. This was taken with my 75-300mm zoomlens. I zoomed in quite a bit lens to get a close up of downtown Vancouver…in the distance you can see Mount Arrowsmith which is located on Vancouver Island.

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).
