Continuing on with the Raincity Series, a view of the Lions Gate Bridge (no, there's no apostrophe in this particular "Lions") which I photographed this earlier this month from along the seawall around Stanley Park on a surprisingly dreary day in the middle a very hot and sunny week. Typical Vancouver!
|Lions Gate Bridge, Vancouver, BC, Canada - Raincity Series|
The Lions Gate Bridge was built in 1937-38 and is one of Vancouver's most famous landmarks. It connects downtown with the cities of North and West Vancouver and beyond. The waters below the bridge form a deep but narrow channel, with very strong currents, so most of the big ships that pass underneath are carefully guided through by the many sturdy little (and not so little) tugboats we see cruising around the area. The mist covered North Shore Mountains formed a nice backdrop to the Bridge's graceful lines on this day.
Prints will be available at the Granville Island Public Market in 8x10 and 11x14 sizes. Larger sizes can by had by request! Find me at the Market this week from Wednesday June 24th through Sunday June 29th.
