Some pics I took on the South Arm of the Fraser last night as boats return to Steveston Harbour and gather around the packers:

The building SpongeG referred to under construction is visible toward the left:

I love how Steveston feels so different to any other place in Metro Vancouver. It has some 'Atlantic' feeling to it.

I know the big one behind it belongs to the owner of the Vancouver Shipyards.
I'm pretty sure that's the Attessa 3, it's the only one of the set(I think there's 3) that has a Helo-pad on it.
A friend of mine used to work at the Shipyards and help build it. I wouldn't be surprised if he owns the stealthy one as well.

Think it's four from this Forbes article in 2011 and the 332-foot yacht Attessa IV.

And the Wallypower 118 is owned (current?) by the Kondakji family and the only current production model.

Forgive the awful quality. This is from a traffic helicopter on Global (?) news earlier this week, and I thought it was a pretty cool angle of the skyline - looked pretty impressive as the camera panned across the various mini skylines.

For a brief moment I thought I was looking at Toronto, since Downtown skyline appears surprisingly wide from that angle (normally this is only the case from Spanish Banks). That is Brentwood in the middle, right? That's a quite zoomed out view.

Yes, Brentwood in the middle, and I guess Lougheed in the foreground?

Awesome view. I'd love to go up in a helicopter with my camera, and snap a few pics like that one.

That's great! Thanks for re-posting Klazu. I drove to and from Seattle on the weekend, so it's neat to see the entire route in one shot. Awesome photo!

It's 300km across that one photo and some 8 million people are living in that area.

What an incredible picture! Is it just me , or does Vancouver Island seem to have way more visible clearcuts then anywhere else?

What that photo shows is how seamless Canada and the US really are and how borders are really in the imagination of humans. Really from that photo it looks like Bellingham and the entire area of the city is quite contiguous with Metro Vancouver. If you didn't draw that line, it would be impossible to tell that they are not only separate from us but in a completely different country.

Mount Vernon -> Seattle looks like a different region as it has Mount Baker and co between them and us, but Bellingham doesn't seem so foreign when you look at that photo.

If that was a photo of Central BC it would look very similar.
