Wake up, Vancouver!

She wakes up, has a quick look around and then lights her usual morning cigarette.
Vancouver is ready for another winter day.
PS What you see it's not pollution. Mostly clouds, with a few smoking condos. Vancouver is one of the cleanest cities in the world!


Svegliati , Vancouver!
Si sveglia, dà un’occhiata veloce intorno e si accende la sua solita sigaretta mattutina.
Vancouver è pronta per una nuova giornata d’inverno.
PS Quel che si vede nella foto non è inquinamento. Principalmente nubi, con qualche colonna di fumo che sale da alcuni grattacieli. Vancouver è una delle città più pulite del mondo!

This is a beautiful cityscape. We don't have much industry here so we don't ever see a sight like this. I like the tones and composition with the coastline in the foreground

@✿ Anina ✿: Hi Anina. It's not smoke from industries that you see. It's just part of the condo heating systems. The industrial part is way far from the city. I'd say 30-or-40-minute drive from Downtown. Vancouver is one of the most clean cities in the world! :D Have a good day :D

Looks like it's getting a lazy start. I'm sure that won't last long before it's full speed. This is a nice skyline, she's bigger than I thought.
