When it snows in Vancouver, there’s no doubt that everything looks a little more magical.
One spot that is particularly enchanting dusted in snow is the Stanley Park Seawall.
Erik Andersen, a Vancouver videographer and photographer, shared a video this week that showcases just how beautiful the park looks in winter.
“A couple of snowy days in Vancouver gave me a chance to see what the Blackmagic Pocket 6K can do,” Andersen wrote on Instagram.
The short video lasts just over a minute and takes viewers around the snow-covered seawall slowly, zooming in on icicles and showing off the beauty of the surrounding area along the way. The clip ends with a gorgeous time-lapse of the city lighting up and clouds rolling over Siwash Rock.
The Instagram video has already attracted more than 1,900 views, since it was posted a day ago. If you’re on the gram, you’ve probably come across Andersen’s striking photos of B.C.
More than 14,000 people follow his work via his account @erikandersen. And surprisingly, he said he hasn’t been taking photography seriously for that long.
"My background is as a wedding videographer," Andersen said.
"I’ve only really called myself a photographer for the past few years now, but I’ve done video for 10 years."
Andersen said he enjoys highlighting the beauty within Vancouver to others.
"I just want to share my love of natural scenes, of light, of the city," he said.
“If I see something I like my first instinct is to share it with other people.”
