The Stanley Park Seawall is gorgeous at any time of the day, but here it is captured in all of its morning glory. Remember, the early bird gets the… Instagram picture?

Lynn Canyon

The sun is starting to peek through the clouds and, as seen here, the trees, too. Lynn Canyon is a hidden gem, and standing amongst the trees as the sunlight barely peeks through can make for a stunning photo-op.
