One of the best locations to capture a photo of the city and the entire region is the Cypress View Point mid-way along the access road to Cypress Mountain.
On rainy days, given its high elevation, the viewing point is often obstructed by foggy conditions and dense clouds but there are also those rare days when the cloud formation occurs down below instead.
Over the weekend, from this very vantage point, local photographer Andrew Lawrence captured some unique and surreal photos of the region covered in fog.
If you are thinking about taking photos of the city from this viewing point, the days with optimal viewing conditions are often right after wet and windy weather as it reduces air pollutants and leaves you with clear, breathtaking views that go as far as Vancouver Island and sometimes even beyond to Mount Rainier.
It is also a great location for nighttime photos of the city, as evident of these photos of simultaneous Canada Day 2013 fireworks displays going off at Coal Harbour and West Vancouver.
