And the third photo from my hotel window, the Hotel Vancouver, Fairmont hotels and resorts.

Nestled between the majestic coastal mountains and the tides of the Pacific Ocean lies Vancouver, a city that attracts travelers from around the world who are drawn to its spectacular scenery and energetic lifestyle.

At the very heart is Vancouver’s landmark, The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. Like the city that surrounds it, the hotel is rich in history, resplendent in natural beauty, vibrant and cosmopolitan. ref: fairmont.com/hotelvancouver

    Good shot – pity it doesn’t fit in the International Point of Interest group because of the post-processing….

  • There is little post-processing, I brought up the shaded part at the bottom and the usual sharpening, levels and curves but it’s ok if it’s too much for the group guidelines. Thanks for the great comment. Cheers :)
