Photo: Illuminated Skyline Vancouver Waterfront Twilight

The illuminated skyline of the Vancouver waterfront is reflected in the waters off the west coast of British Columbia, Canada at twilight.

Lines of colour extend from the waterfront as the lights of the skyscrapers in the city of Vancouver are illuminated and the skyline and waterfront are reflected at twilight. As dusk draws deeper, the reflections of the myriad colours emanating from the city's towers and from Canada Place on the shoreline create a modern abstract design in the waves.

The distinctive five sails of Canada Place, designed to give the appearance of a ship, mark a gathering place for over 3 million visitors annually. Opened in 1986 as the pavilion for Canada in Expo 86, Canada Place was designed by architect, Eberhard Zeidler.

In the past decade, Vancouver has ranked high on the international list of "livable cities". Ranking such criteria as safety, education, hygiene, health care, culture, environment, education and public transportation, the list is also important in corporate decision-making as to where to open offices or how to pay employees.
