Please view the TE Beta version for better clarity and depth STANLEY PARK VIEWS.


I guess I will continue posting a few more drone photos, why not, i'm on a roll and I can't stop :)

This is another one of those photos I've been wanting to capture and I finally got around to it.

Its a view/photo I've never seen of my own city before, so i'm happy to capture it and show it to you now.

You may already recognise some of the buildings in the shot, especially on the left. The white sails are from Canada Place, which I've shown on here many times. Lars and Rob have also posted photos of Canada Place when they visited here.

What you're seeing is a view taken from Stanley Park, looking back on downtown Vancouver. More specifically, its Brockton Point Lighthouse. I have driven my car, rode my bike, walked, jogged, roller bladed this several times, but never ever seen it from this POV. I hope you like it as much as I do.

I had to be very careful flying my drone here. Its illegal. There are float planes that take off from the water on the left. So I had to be very very aware of their flight routes, and height. I paid attention to how often they take off. I knew I would have about 10 min until the next float plane, and so that's what I did. Be quick, be as safe as possible and don't get caught by police.

Speaking of Police, when I arrived there WAS a police car parked right here and I was quite disappointed and worried. Then the police car left after waiting about 20 min. I took my chance and it worked out perfectly.

The map feature will show you where this is located
