Sunsets in Vancouver are Perfect.
There’s no other way to put it really. Vancouverites are lucky to live on the West Coast of Canada, most within a very short distance of the ocean where all the magic takes place. I’ve found a great sense of peace in Vancouver, especially at sunset when everyone around you takes moment to watch and enjoy the last glimpse of sunlight after another great day.
There are endless locations to take in the beautiful colours that unfold before you in the sky. The reflections in the water and long shadows that fall behind the various landscapes. The moment before the sun dips beyond the horizon is probably the best for some wonderful warm light in your photographs.
Everyday is unique. There’s no sunset that is the same as another. The light changes every night the sun goes down, different location, different clouds in the sky and different landscape depending on where you are. This is one of the wonderful things about the sunset as you’ll never see the same thing twice.
The warm glow that lingers after the sun disappears can create the most amazing silhouettes. It’s interesting to see the shapes that form in the landscape and makes great subjects for some wonderful photos. It can change so much that sometimes I feel like I’m in a completely different country. Africa perhaps…
If you’re in search of the “Perfect” sunset, I suggest you head to Vancouver. You just might find what you’re looking for.
