Continuing in my series of photos of the temperature inversion in Vancouver, I was fortunate enough to be able to capture the downtown buildings and the Lions Gate Bridge both partially covered by fog, and partially lit by the setting sun.
This is quite an unusual shot, as the fog frequently only sinks after sunset, so I was very pleased to be able to get this photo, capturing the last rays of the sun as they light up the buildings and the suspension bridge.
In this shot, you can see that the fog is higher in the west (on the right of the photo), and is actually blocking the sunlight from hitting the lower reaches of the buildings, particularly on the east side. The shallow angle of the light also highlights the peaks and troughs in the clouds.
This is a six photo panorama taken at 300mm just a couple of minutes before the sun set, and has incredible detail in the buildings and the bridge. This can be printed extremely large without any loss of quality.
