This year we were lucky to have a bright sunny day in Vancouver for the 2016 Summer Solstice. Everyone was out enjoying the longest day of the year, mostly at the beach or on the Seawall in English Bay where it was nice and warm with a cool ocean breeze.
Summer Solstice Landscape Photos
It was a great evening to capture some beautiful landscapes as well as a few shots of the locals out enjoying the day. The light lingers for a long time through the evening until the sun finally sets. The golden hour is especially awesome.
Here are some images from the Vancouver Summer Solstice:
Inukshuk in English Bay
I made a point to make this my last shot before the sun was gone. I had this location in the back of my mind for quite some time and what a great evening to capture it.
This art piece is a super popular subject to photograph. After passing it I looked back and found the sun glowing through the vegetation on the side of the Seawall. A great foreground subject for the evening light.
Dog Enjoying the Solstice
Pretty much everyone was out there enjoying the sunshine. This is at Sunset Beach in English Bay with the Burrard Bridge in the background.
The trees along the Seawall frame the beach and sunset perfectly.
English Bay Silhouette
She was enjoying the scenery and held still long enough for a great street shot.
Evening on the Seawall
A beautiful golden glow filled the Seawall as the sun began to set.
Can’t wait for next year’s solstice. They just get better and better every year!
