Lately everyone has been posting photos of Sunsets. Being in the City my sunsets are not that spectacular. The sun usually sets behind some telephone poles, buildings or roofs
The past couple of days it has been a bit nippy in the morning
as you notice from the exhaust condensation. I leave home around sunrise which is just around 7am. This morning it was 5°c . While I have a heated vest I have not used it for over 5 years. I prefer to wear a fleece jacket under my riding gear. My thin gloves are the same ones I used in 100°F heat when I took my trip last summer and I seldom turn on my heated grips
Yesterday when I was nearly at work I noticed the sun trying to peek through the clouds but by the time I found a good vantage point the moment was gone
I waited for a few moments hoping the sun would shine through but then I had to get to work. I work in Coquitlam but I live in Vancouver. My commute involves having to travel through Burnaby and New Westminster. New Westminster is not unlike San Francisco when it comes to steep hills but near the top I am able to get a good view of the new Port Mann Bridge, in the distance
I seldom use the digital zoom on my Lumix TS3 point and shoot so this was the best that I could do
This morning I decided to bring my "Good Camera" with the longer zoom
There were fewer clouds today and the sun still had the golden glow
and the bridge was obscured a bit with only the towers visible through the low mist
I stay for a few minutes trying to snap a few different angles
Not sure whether it looks better with the sun, or without . . .
or whether this image should be zoomed in . . .
or Zoomed Out. I think the zoomed out looks better as it shows the subject in its environment
