Twilight in Edenshaw

March 9, 2012

We had a few sunny days recently and my client, Eric Christiansen, took advantage of the nice weather to book some twilight shoots with me. I got to this West Vancouver townhome a little before sunset and started shooting interiors until the sky offered up that nice cobalt blue tone that I always wait for. It’s only visible for about 15 minutes just after the sun goes down, so it’s important to scout out the locations for those special shots ahead of time. For this layout, we had two balconies and the main room to cover, so I just ran from one spot to the other, taking shots every minute or so. You can see all the images, plus the listing information here.

It’s always an adventure shooting properties in West Vancouver. Every neighbourhood, every house is unique. The entire city is perched on a hillside, offering incredible views of Vancouver and beyond from just about every window. And the homes tucked away along the winding waterfront roads are nothing short of spectacular.
One of the more interesting neighbourhoods is called the Parthenon, named after an old estate that had structures built to resemble Greek ruins. Some of the foundations and columns are still there, enjoyed by the dozen or so houses that now occupy the property. The waterfront itself is shared among the homeowners, so each can lay claim to beach access. The land is surrounded on three sides by the ocean, and includes a barbecue area, concrete wharf, beach, trails, and an unobstructed view of Burrard Inlet. Oh yes, and the house is pretty nice too.
