Stanley Park

Stanley Park is in downtown Vancouver and surrounded by the Pacific ocean.┬áThe land was originally used by aboriginal people for thousands of years. It was later turned into Vancouver’s first park when the city incorporated in 1886. The park was named after Lord Stanley, a British politician who had been appointed governor general. While I was exploring the park the clouds parted for a short period of time creating these heavenly beams of sunlight. It was wonderful to see, but difficult to capture the beauty with a digital camera.
