Fantastic photo of Vancouver's fog bank

This is from the top of Cypress Mountain, showing downtown Vancouver. The picture was taken by Scott Miller, photographer for the "Vancouver Sun". There was a bit of a mystery about this famous photo which began to circulate the globe. It was NOT taken by a friend of a friend's of my husband's. Don't believe everything you're told! I find it really odd that the one photo I post on here that isn't mine, suddenly becomes quite famous, and it was on Global TV News channel on January 28/09. Here's a link to confirm this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/buzzbishop/3214272142/ Another photographer named Blair Kent also took a photo nearly exactly the same as this one, but the tree in the lower right hand corner is a tad different.

This photo has made the rounds, to say the least. Can you please post a link to Milo's original photo and details? If your "husband's friend's friend" took this shot he should get full credit on the hundreds of places it has been posted. If you can post it here I'll see that it makes it to the Nets... Thanks!
