On Saturday Lewis and I decided to wake up at 5:30 am to catch the sunrise over Vancouver. With the alarm set we went to bed praying for good weather. We decided we’d go rain or shine and were determined to stay positive and get great photos no matter what! Secretly, I was hoping for fog. I mean, how cool would it be to get foggy picture of the city as the sun comes up?! Anyways, we were out the door and into the freezing cold by 6am, allowing ourselves plenty of time to make it downtown. The only thing we didn’t plan was having to defrost the truck… meaning sitting for a good 5-10 minutes with the car running as our neighbours try to sleep!
Getting up was surprisingly easy, we made our way to Starbucks for some much needed caffeine and then started the 40 minute drive to Prospect Point. We may have hit some black ice on the journey down, which was TERRIFYING. Luckily, the roads were practically empty and we were able to safely steer out of it. Hearts pounding, we made it to an empty, pitch black Stanley Park. We got out of the warm comfort of the car, got our gear and walked out to the lookout point at Prospect Park and our jaws dropped. The view was INCREDIBLE! Look at that mountain! I really can’t get over how much the landscaped changed throughout the morning. My mind is blown. How the colours moved from grey and purple to golden oranges and yellows as the sun came up to finally crisp blues as the sun rose above us.
