A new and fourth image for the "Raincity Series"!
|Captain George Vancouver, City Hall, Vancouver, BC, Canada|
In keeping with the "moodiness" of this series, there's some dramatic clouds overhead in this image but that sun is still trying so hard to peek through, giving Captain Vancouver a bit of a backlit glow.
Captain George Vancouver plied the waters of the North American Coast in the late 1700's and named many of the landforms we are so familiar with along our rocky shores. Interestingly, neither he nor the Spanish explorers of the day charted, or even noticed, the mighty Fraser River which is such a large and important waterway in the area.
Vancouver's namesake was instrumental in opening up the western coastline to European settlement. For good or for bad he was an important person in British Columbia's history.
