A park near dark

10-pm-11th-ave-willow west

This panorama photo was taken about an hour later than the parked cars — closer to 10 p.m. — but a day earlier and about eight blocks east.

This is a large public green space on the south side of the Vancouver General Hospital grounds; looking west on 11th Avenue at the intersection with Willow Street.

The way the perpendicular rays of sunlight are blocked as the sun falls below the horizon, leaving us with just the weaker light of oblique angles is a kind of a nightly example of what — as I understand it — happens to our sunlight all winter and why the sun is brighter and hotter in the summer. Here’s a simple explanation — with pictures! Click the image to enlarge it.
