Christmas lights at VanDusen Botanical Gardens is one of the December highlights in Vancouver.







Inside gardens there is altogether 15 acres of beautiful Christmas lights to see in an area around the beautiful pond.







There are altogether 1 million Christmas lights in all possible sizes and colors.







For kids there is also a nice little carousel to ride.



Every 30 minutes there is a changing lights show around the pond.









While there are no leaves in the trees in December, there is still a lot of green to see.

















All things considered, we found it a beautiful event to experience and worth the fairly steep entrance price.

It was a beautiful night last night, so I took few shots of the surrounding metropolitan area. Downtown Vancouver is always looking beautiful at sunset.





Lougheed tower cluster in the background as seen from Metrotown.









Brentwood's ever-expanding skyline during blue hour.













Both Brentwood and Downtown Vancouver can be fit in one wide shot. All three local ski resorts are also visible here.

While Canada is heading for lockdown like rest of the world, it has been difficult to stay indoors with the magnificent weather outside.

Great weather started more than a week ago and last Saturday was very windy making Crescent Beach in White Rock was almost empty.







Also Pitt Lake in Pitt Meadows has seen loads of people suffering from cabin fever and looking to get out.













Also this year's ski season ended abruptly due to the situation. Our last evening in the slopes was few weeks ago at Cypress Mountain.





Sunsets on top of Mount Stratchan can be something else.





Fortunately weather is now turning to more rain which should help people to keep their social distance and stay isolated at their homes.

Brentwood project update has Amazing Brentwood development looking tall. I can't wait for the full cluster of 10 towers to be completed in the next ten years.









Concord Brentwood project will add 4 tall towers to the eastern skyline.







What a difference 7 years of construction boom can make!

Project update around Metrotown area in Burnaby.



First up, the Station Square cluster is transforming the entire neighborhood and has its last two tall towers going up right now.















Gold House is turning out nice and will have a huge screen. What it will play, remains to be seen.



Sun Tower is a two-tower development next door.





The entire Beresford Street stretch has seen a lot of development in last 6 years.



Also the nearby Nelson Street cluster keeps rising. Two latest towers are called Polaris and Vittorio.











Finally, Sussex is another two-tower development on a very small lot.
