Above the Fog

Vancouver, British Columbia, peeks above a foggy winter night. "Photographers often rush to Cypress Mountain for a high vantage point above the dense fog," says Your Shot photographer Spencer Finlay. "I have been there many times only to find the fog too thick resulting in the whole city being covered and not visible. On this January night, I was pleasantly surprised to see the iconic Lions Gate Bridge and the recognizable Vancouver skyline rising out of the illuminated blanket of fog."
