"Vancity" becomes "Cloud City"

“Vancity” becomes “Cloud City”

With Vancouver blanketed in a layer of fog and cloud for something like the 5th or 6th day in a row now, there’s a bunch of talented shutterbugs out there who have started to take advantage of this unique weather condition known as a “temperature or cloud inversion”.

For the past few days, while we’ve been experiencing cool and foggy conditions down here at sea level, skiers and snowboarders alike have been enjoying warm sunny conditions on the local ski hills. And while I’ve been wanting to get up above the cloud level to take some shots myself, I just haven’t had the chance. So… in a bid to let you all witness this oddly beautiful phenomena for yourselves, I present to you a few of the better photos that have been doing the email rounds here in Vancouver this week.

I’d like to note, too, that I ALWAYS try to give credit where credit is due for all photos other than mine published here on my Blog. In the case of the photos below, I’ve not been able to track down the relevant owners, and cannot, therefore provide the desired attributions. If they are your shots, please let me know in the comments section below and I will gladly give you full credit for taking those that belong to you.

    Fabulous post. Quite amazing to see.

    Where I come from ( southern ontario ) the children experience fog days more than snow days. Does Vancouver shut down schools when this occurs?

      @Tracy – not that I know of. I think there’s only been a handful of school closures this season on the North Shore and that was due to crazy snow falls back in January.

    The second one of Lions Gate is eerie, but beautiful.

    I’ve only just begun to experience fog now that I’m living in Europe …but this takes it to another level! Great photos!
