Grouse Mountain - Picture Perfect
An amazing view from the top of Grouse Mountain
A few days ago I went snowboarding over at Grouse Mountain. I always love taking the gondola up and watching the city get further and further away as you approach the snowy peak. The snow was soft and the air was crisp; it was a little cloudy out but with some breaks in the clouds. As I was shredding snow up and down for a few hours, the clouds started to part as I made my way up the chair lift. I turned towards the "Peak" hill and saw such an amazing parting of clouds that truly gave me shivers down my spine (not from the cold, I was bundled up very well) I couldn't resist but to take out my iPhone and take this image. I sat there for maybe 10 minutes simply in awe of Nature's beauty and how incredible it is to be out in the snow on the mountain; moments like these just reaffirm the joy and wonder that comes with taking a photograph.
I hope you enjoy this image taken at Grouse Mountain as much as I did when I took it and while witnessing the beauty first hand. If you haven't been up to Grouse Mountain yet this year, I would definitely recommend going. There was also a spectacular view of the bay with the shipping vessels during sunset, however I wasn't able to do that view justice with the chairlift cords in the way. If you don't ski or snowboard, try snowshoeing; a friend of mine went and told me that the snowshoe path takes you higher on the mountain where the view is even more spectacular.
