Elizabeth George lives in Coal Harbour and tells Vancouver Is Awesome that she used to walk from the North Shore to Coal Harbour frequently.

She took the awe-inspiring snap five years ago and shared it on Reddit this week. In her post, she remarks that the image was taken on a "potato quality" phone but that she loves how it shows how the land disappears into the water.

A couple of people comment that the "potato phone" was able to take a rather impressive snap, while others marvel at the clarity of the water.

Reddit user VancouverCitizen also mentions that "It would be cool to see an elevation map of what's under the water in the Burrard Inlet" and someone replies with a link to a Burrard Inlet Depth Chart.

Striking snaps from popular Vancouver viewpoint
