Walks Jan 11th, 17: West Dyke at Dusk by Jonathan Marks|Published 13 Jan, 2017 A beautiful end to a rare clear winter day in Vancouver. A walk along the West Dyke between Steveston Ave and Francis Rd, looking out across Sturgeon Bank. Looking South West at Vancouver Is. on the West Dyke. White dot in the top left is Venus. Looking West – the marsh in the foreground is frozen Looking North West A little later looking north at the North Shore mountains. The lights are from the ski fields. When it is dark the lights appear suspended above earth – a place where the angels stay. A bit later, looking south west again. Venus is much brighter.
