Photographer's Note

A foggy morning at Burnaby Mountain in British Columbia, Canada.

About this photo: We had a few foggy days in a row near the end of January and one of the day I could see the sky was fairly nice quite early in the morning. I decided I wanted to go and take some photos of the sunrise at Burnaby Lake, but by the time I was almost there it was very foggy.

On the radio they had said that you could be above the fog and that it could be sunny on higher elevations. So, I decided to drive up to Burnaby Mountain and as oon as I got drove up the hill there it cleared up and I was in the sunshine.

Here you can see the mountains rising above the fog a little while after sunrise. Normally you can see the Burrard Inlet in the valley, but today it was filled in thick fog. I liked how the sun coloured the clouds. I added some contrast and saturation in photoshop.

Some information on Burnaby Mountain: Burnaby is a city which belongs to the Greater Vancouver area and is about 10-15 minutes from downtown Vancouver. Burnaby Mountain is one of the beautiful places to visit in Burnaby and is located near the Simon Fraser University. The views over the mountains, the Burrard Inlet, downtown Vancouver and Indian arm from up here make it such a great place. This is a fairly popular destination popular visitors and locals alike. The green hillside offers room to throw a frisbee or send a kite soaring. There is a network of trails which offer a variety of hiking, walking and jogging options. There is also a playground tucked away in the upper hillside.

The Centennial Pavilion area features the Rose Garden, with its vibrant colours in season and a great variety of roses. Nearby is the acclaimed Horizons restaurant and two majestic totem poles, a reminder of the community's proud native heritage. Towering over the distant city are the tall Kamui Mintara (Playground of the Gods) sculptures. The Kamui Mintara is more than a dozen carved poles created by Japanese sculptors Nuburi Toko and his son, Shusei. These impressive sculptures commemorate the goodwill between Burnaby and its sister city, Kushiro, Japan.

Burnaby Mountain is a great place to enjoy in any season as there are always the beautiful views over the city, the mountains, the Burrard Inlet and Indian Arm (a coastal fjord of about 18km/11.25mi long).
