The construction of the highrises on the north side of False Creek has never impressed me. I find the buildings to be sterile, lacking good architecture, with the same type and colour of the windows and steel structure and insufficient green space. Nothing left of the past history. This does not fit Vancouver and it is in stark contrast to the great scenery surrounding the city. Compare the photo above with the north side of Stanley Park. It has a feeling of the nature welco
The fog hang over the Inner Harbour this morning and the sun tried hard to penetrate. I felt the fog made the fall colors stand out and made me feel it is fall. The fall colors along the small lake at Devonian Park brought life into the otherwise colouless scenery of the high-rises along West Georgia Street.

This is the West End at 06:15 this morning. There is a total of six high-rise condo/apartment buildings to be constructed over the next couple of years. Four are already under construction and three construction cranes can bee seen in this picture. No plans have been announced for any improvements covering the public transportation system to meet the increased population.
On my hike this morning on the Seawall, I could not help but take a few more pictures of the scenery I have photographed a few times before. What caught my eye this time was the amazing reflections. The three pictures are from Coal Harbour, the marina of Royal Vancouver Yacht Club and the bridge to Deadman Island.
