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.
