Lumière At English Bay

Lumière is an annual event here in Vancouver that is said to be inspired by light and artistic expression. A few minutes walk from our apartment, at English Bay, is the current home to one of this year’s 4 public installations. Recently, on my way home from work one evening, I decided to check it out.


Various light statues dot the area, and I was just one of dozens of people who was there to take a closer look.


Across the street, at the entrance to the beach stood a tree. I couldn’t help but notice the contrast of the cool white lights against the backdrop of the colourful sunset.


Gorgeous, non?

As I stood snapping the above photo I noticed that the tree was starting to change colour.




The only thing I wish I had done differently was to grab an hot chocolate at one of the close by coffee shops to fight the cold air.

If you’re in the area, I definitely suggest checking out Lumière At English Bay.

Bonne journée!

    This quirky blogger also lives in Beautiful BC, she took some beautiful pictures in Vancouver of lighting that I thought my readers would love. English Bay is on the west side of downtown Vancouver, beautiful spot to walk if you visit.

    1. Thank you! 💗 And I wish I could say that I have special photographic skills but, alas, it was simply the perfect conditions. I took them with my mobile phone, and didn’t even edit them before posting. Dumb luck! 😋


  2. Superb photos! I lived and worked in Vancouver for one year a long time ago. I lived in the West End and also in Kitsilano. Haven’t been back since, but I’m dying to go back for a visit.
