This is a bright rendition of the Kits Point “dog beach” where people walk their dogs. More specifically, the white structure at the tip marks Elsje Point, a quiet little spit just down from the Maritime Museum.
The water of Vancouver is more often a dark green than a blue: it reflects the trees that line the shores and is also coloured within by the seaweed and algae. The waves are random but repetitive.
The distinct green-blue Vancouver mountains slouch over a decidedly more colourful English Bay. English Bay is where we hold our annual and much-loved fireworks competition and this point is a prime viewing spot.
