Calm Harbour

Inner Harbour at night with Legislative Assembly Buildings, Victoria, BC, CanadaVictoria has the warmest climate in Canada. That doesn't mean it's particularly warm. It's only warm compared to the rest of Canada, a notoriously cold country. We seldom have warm nights since most of the city is close to the water and the Pacific Ocean is cold and tends to deliver a cold breeze most evenings, even in mid-summer. This July, however, we have had a few genuinely warm evenings, even close to the shore and some nights, such as pictured here, there has been only the merest breath of a breeze. Though most Victorians are groaning about the excessive heat, I love it since it means I can roam about at night and take photos like this without feeling like a martyr.

Great shot! Can't agree about Victoria being the warmest at this time of the year (ever been on the praries in the summer or Ontario for that matter?), although it is the most moderate, usually. Canada's generally pretty hot in the summer really, okay not like the tropics. A small point, that in no way detracts from a great shot!
