The plate on the right existed so did not placed from me.
The two blossom trees are named Cercis siliquastrum,or in English Judas tree,in France Arbre de Judée,in Germany Judasbaum and in Greek Κουστουπιά.
For a winder view you can see the place here:
Island Park Walk located just steps from Granville market.
Granville Island is a small island and shopping district in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It is located in False Creek directly across from Downtown Vancouver's peninsula, under the south end of the Granville Street Bridge. The island is now more or less connected with the mainland so it is not technically an island.
Granville Island was once an industrial manufacturing area, but is now a major tourist destination, providing amenities such as a public market, a large marina, a hotel, the Emily Carr University of Art and Design (named in honour of the artist), various theatres including the Arts Club Theatre Company and Carousel Theatre, and various shopping areas clustered around the one industrial outpost remaining, a cement plant. The island is very popular with tourists and locals alike.
Passenger ferry service from Granville Island to Downtown Vancouver is provided by two ferry companies, False Creek Ferries and Aquabus.
Since its redevelopment in the 1970s, Granville Island has maintained a healthy community of craft studios, including a glassblowing studio, a printmaking shop, a luthier, a master shoemaker, various jewellers, and the B.C. Potter's Guild. A weekly farmer's market has also been ongoing since the island's redevelopment.
Granville Island Brewing Co. is also the name of a beer company which originated on Granville Island in 1984, but whose main base of operations was moved to Kelowna, British Columbia some time later. It does continue, however, to brew some of its varieties at the original site, and offers beer-tasting tours.
In 2004, Project for Public Spaces named Granville Island "One of the World's Great Places".

όμορφη και ενδιαφέρουσα θέα, υπέροχο μέρος για βόλτα, ιδιαίτερα την εποχή που είναι ανθισμένες οι κουτσουπιές. Μου αρέσει πολύ η θέα της "μεταλλικής" επιφάνειας του νερού και του σύγχρονου αστικού τοπίου ανάμεσα στα χαριτωμένα δέντρα. Μου αρέσει επίσης η ένταση των χρωμάτων και των σκιών, που παραμένει αμείωτη ανεξάρτητα από την επιφάνεια και την απόσταση. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,

These trees remind me Japanese sakura, and this photo reminds me a blossom spring Washington. Some tilted but picturesque composition, good saturation. I like this presentation of Vancouver.
Noel_Byrne (33416) 2014-02-04 9:42
On first sight, I thought perhaps this was Washington, another place known for the cherry blossom trees! This is a beautiful sight, the combination of the vivid trees and the modern city in the background is really wonderful to behold, and especially with such rich blues from the sky and the water running through like this as a perfect compliment. Very nicely done.
All the best

Beautiful trees and curious buildings.
Excellent composition and colors.
Very impressive picture.
cornejo (46024) 2014-02-04 9:53
Hello Danos, very good picture of this beautiful composition, with beautiful flowering trees river and city in the background, very well captured in this beautiful image, very good sharpness, depth, light and color. Very good and nice job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good night and happy week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
krzychu30 (15512) 2014-02-04 10:45
beautiful view with skyscrapers in the BG.
These trees in the FG makes really lovely atmosphere of the scene.But for me the most amazing thing about this composition is definitely its strong graphics.Colors,their saturation and finally contrast between them make your shot memorable!
Have a nice evening
jemaflor (102159) 2014-02-04 11:04
Beautiful view with these flowers in the Fg, interesting contrast between pink and blue, lovely light capture, tfs.
Miguel82 (27718) 2014-02-04 11:14
Danos, happy to discover Granville in Vancouver area, that place is perfect to walk after a shopping in the mall, perfect hues of Judee trees, vivid pink, neat image, good dof with boats and high towers in the bg, all the best, have a nice evening
papagolf21 (107921) 2014-02-04 11:27
Bonsoir, cher ami Danos,
Joli mois de mai où les fleurs sortent des bourgeons avec beaucoup de joliesse.
Un cadrage fort bien pensé pour valoriser ce lieu mélangeant ville et endroit de promenade.
amaryllis (37039) 2014-02-04 11:40
Une belle photo printanière avec ces arbres en fleurs, patientons encore un peu pour revoir cette belle nature
Un beau cadrage
macjake (71721) 2014-02-04 12:48
yes, this is near Granville Market, but its more accurately False Creek. I guess its inbetween the two :)
I personally have walked this area many many times, its a great place for a walk, jog, a dog walk, and a great place to take photos.
the May scenery works well here with the colorful blossom trees. You should see this place in the Autumn :)
a very pretty photo from Vancouver
abmdsudi (57176) 2014-02-04 23:49
A colourful capture of the promenade, well composed and exposed rich in colours with good depth and enough elements to make it attractive. Well done
Romano46 (18472) 2014-02-05 3:09
Una bella composizione ed una gestione della luce ottimale per valorizzare sia la scena che i colori dei fiori e del cielo.
Ciao e buona giornata
pierrefonds (70395) 2014-02-05 4:24
The waterway is sending my eye toward the buildings in the background wehich is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the trees in flowers. The good luminosity is bringing out the colours. Have a nice day.
saxo042 (37966) 2014-02-05 7:13
This picture is clearly dominated by the blue and the pink colours. A beautiful view with these important components. A very attractive cityscape in the background and an interesting note.
ikeharel (77137) 2014-02-05 7:51
Fabulous pink flowers with the cityscape on the far side as BG.
The scrapers are in fine clarity, due to great DOF managed. Well set the camera, filled smartly all of pic. space.
adramad (48904) 2014-02-05 8:08
Many names for this tree, in Spain, not, as it is known, although I have ever seen, here beautifully complements the splendid view of the city, we see in the background, the water channel gives a great charm this very ideal.
A sunny day, giving a beautiful color range of natural tones.
As usual, great sharpness and brightness.
Have a good evening.
All the best.
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-02-05 10:18
Wow! Awesome capture of the spring blooms, love the colors of those flowers. Good details. Well done, tfs.
PaulVDV (31819) 2014-02-05 15:04
An excellently composed picture.
The trees with their colourful blossoms make a perfect foreground for the view of the skyline of Granville.
Best regards, Paul

Geia sou Danos
I see the best of two world on the same picture: Vancouver is an elegant city to take pictures of and quite lively at night for tourists.
You show it through the flowery trees that add 'much soul' during the runners morning exercises, as well as prompting inspiration for artists painters!
Lovely scenery indeed.
jmdias (67861) 2014-02-05 15:43
amazing these flowers in the trees and their contrast with the deep blue sky. I liked the barrier of the buildings ahead too. nice job.
mirosu (16273) 2014-02-05 18:31
Beautiful photo. The perfectly lit blooming trees are the main focal point of this photo. There is a great use of depth of field to hold the viewer in the foreground trees as well as blue water and toll buildings in BG, and the excellent lighting conditions have allowed for very good color saturation. The overall impact is very strong. Very well done.
kato (11630) 2014-02-05 18:34
You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the winding promenade with blossom trees in Granville Island and cluster of high-rise buildings of Vancouver downtown on back. Here looks like the suitable place for taking a walk. The canal which some boats are anchoring gives the reconciliation between two district as seasoning. And, it's also effective for the shadow projected to the promenade.
Subhogen (4067) 2014-02-06 1:16
Excellent view of the skyscrapers through these lovely blossoms. Underexposure works well over here. Like the curve presented by the edge of the waterway. Beautiful photo with vibrant colours, superb light and good clarity. Thanks for sharing.
Silvio1953 (151503) 2014-02-06 6:21
Ciao Danos, lovely composition with nice blossom trees, great perspective, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
UlfE (14641) 2014-02-06 10:52
Beautiful colours and very nice with the blossoming trees against the blue sky. The blue water also enhances the Beauty of the scene. TFS and have a nice evening!
claudeD (41212) 2014-02-06 22:50
must be a wonderful experience to have a walk in this park with all the colorful trees and the big buildings in the background. Very good composition and colors.TFS.

it is a colourful composition indeed. I enjoyed the view with fantastic colours. Excellent composition with very nice depth and sharpness. Excellent photography. Tfs.
imageme (1790) 2014-02-07 14:53
Hi Danos, A beautiful landscape with these two blossoming flower trees on the river bank. The pink flowers against the blue sky give a great contrast to the composition. The vivid river water leads my eye sights to the buildings on the other side. The curve shows the elegant design of this place. Wonderful light and brilliant colours along with great DOF. Awesome Spring presentation., and it is really worth more than 2 points. Thank for sharing
mcmtanyel (27928) 2014-02-07 21:39
These pretty colored blossoming trees remind us that this winter will not last forever and spring and summer will follow, they always do. Excellent colors, great perspective and pretty scenery with an informative note.
geoant68 (331) 2014-02-07 22:52
εξαιρετικής ποιότητας η φωτογραφία σου με τις δύο κουτσουπιές να δημιουργούν ένα υπέροχο συνδιασμό και κοντραστ.Τα μοντέρνα κτήρια στο βάθος όπως και η αρμονία της παρουσίασης κάνουν την σκηνή τόσο όμορφη και ρεαλιστική,
jhm (158820) 2014-02-08 7:21
Pictures have no time, this fits always, certainly with the blossoms of the Japanese cherries
Excellent composition with depth and perspective.
Sharpness and clarity are excellent.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
Gigidusud (21247) 2014-02-09 13:38
Très jolie vue sur la ville depuis le parc. Magnifique contraste des arbres en fleurs roses sur fond de ciel bleu. J'aime beaucoup!
Kamilutka (8107) 2014-02-11 11:10
these trees are just lovely! They make the scenery look almost like Japan. The pink color adds so much to the picture. I like also how they create nice contrast with the modern town in the background.
The colors, light and sharpness have been very well done.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening
shevchenko (20548) 2014-02-11 18:22
Creative frame and good pov to frame the scenery by the river and the background view, lovely blooming trees in the spring, beautiful background city, distinct photo, good shoot.
Angshu (56760) 2014-02-12 20:24
Lovely view...I especially like the blossoms, which are similar to the sakura blossoms in Japan. The pink coloured flowers contrast beautifully with the deep blue water. Good work!
ChrisJ (117201) 2014-02-14 5:56
Perfect density and sharpness although I might have rotated the image a little to the left. Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between hot pink flowers and the blue sky and reflected skylight in the canal. The pedestrian walkway provides fine lead in lines. Tfs!
nikkitta (17068) 2014-02-15 12:31
Spanish name is Arbol de Judas, just in case
This a good composition with very saturated color, so really atractive
Like the contrast of the pink flowers at the front and the view of the high buildings at the back
Not an island but a nice place to stroll and take creative photos
Well done, congrats
I always thought Canadwas a boring country covered by trees and snow
mkamionka (39799) 2014-02-17 3:41
lovely composition with the beautifully blooming trees in the foreground and a nice modern panorama behind. You had a wonderful weather over there. The flowers look well set against the blue sky. Blue sky makes also the water look blue. Everything is so pretty here.
Very well done!
josepmarin (58359) 2014-02-18 2:18
the blossom trees in foreground are a fantastic eye-catcher, but they not hide the beauty of the urban landscape which we can see in background.
The mixture of these elements works very well in the composition, I like the great light and the quality of the vivid colors. It's a wonderful view and a beautiful photo.

When nature meets the city ! These beautiful Judas trees add some welcome warm colours in an inner and glass landscape, as we say Vancouver skyline in the background.
