From a September trip over to Vancouver here's a few aerial pics. My one request to Harbour Air and West Coast Air:
wash your windows!!! :evil: The chicken entrée on the flight, however, was excellent.

Container port my AS_!!











Does anyone know what this clearcut is?! Sorry, I don't make it out that part of the peninsula often, so I don't have a clue.





Ok, there is density, then there's trailer sprawl!!! :shock:

Holy mother of pearls, zoomer! Those photos are intense!

I think the clearcut must be a secret entrance Victoria's City Council's escape pods off the island in the event of a catastrophy.

Either than or it's Renthefinn's backyard :smt102

Know it all.

Dylan dropping a criticism bomb, again.^Funny how you assume people don't know of something just because they don't anounce it.

Hey gumdum, three people expressed their perplexion at the logging
activity they thought they were looking at. I simply made them know to
them it was a pile of their own s***.

Anyways, Zoomer great pics! I always enjoy seeing pics like the first one
which show just how tall some of Victoria's buildings are. Orchard House really stands out well.

What's that giant building on Ogden Point actually used for? I guess some of it is Customs and office space.

Wow Dylan. Taking my name and changing the G to a D. That's smart. Did you figure that one all by yourself or did mommy help you?

Alright, alright--moving on...

Just now I noticed the slender, skinny tower called Orchard House! Never seen a side view before--hilarious..

I was going to stay that mysterious area with the power lines reminds me of the area I used to mountain bike. We'd drive to the dump then follow the power lines and find some cool trails. I was going to say "I think that place is somewhere near the dump"

Nearer than I thought ha!

I guess that's the Shutters crane which would date this photo reliably.

Look at how an office tower on the Gold's gym lot would be a nice transition to the Bay/Well highrise cluster.

This north section of Downtown has so much potential...I really hope the highers potential here is achieved.
