Photographer's Note

Canada Place & Burrard Inlet

No, I didn't borrow Craig's drone to get this view, it was taken from the Vancouver Lookout, the observation deck in Harbour Centre (168m). The photo was taken through slightly tinted windows.

The water you can see here is Burrard Inlet, which separates Vancouver and the Burrard Peninsula from the North Shore Mountains and the city of North Vancouver. The tower in the foreground is Granville Square. Completed in 1973, the top of the building is the Vancouver Harbour Control Tower for float planes at Burrard Inlet, at 142m the tallest control tower in the world. Right behind it, Canada Place can be seen, the iconic building with its white sails, which I showed in my first post from Vancouver. As you can see, three cruise ships were docked here that day. Finally, you can see a part of Stanley Park on the far left hand side of the photo.
