English Bay Aug06/11

On my walk to beautiful English Bay, Vancouver, BC, I captured some shots of the water, of the ocean beaches… and of the Burrard Bridge.

It was a gorgeous day. We were heading there to watch Canada’s night to display fireworks – which were fantastic. We were sitting in a very good area, right in front of the speakers so we could hear the music very well. With the advantage of an English-speaking audience, Canada’s music choices included many well-known songs such as John Lennon’s Imagine, as well as pop songs. The fireworks complemented the song’s tone and feeling well; some parts were synchronized though, they could have been more synchronized between fireworks and music. The finale with “Bring Me to Life” by Evanescence was simply breathtaking and amazing.

You can view it here (finale song starts at 6:22):

It doesn’t really do the show justice but it’s close enough for now 🙂
