Port Moody Winter Night Project

Last week BC got hit by a cold snap and here in the Greater Vancouver Area we received a nice dump of snow. Having just gotten back from Holland, I was still nurturing a jetlag and found myself wide awake at 4 in the morning. I decided to grab my camera gear and go out on a little adventure in the snow. The idea was to shoot a few images for a christmas card and at the same time shoot this little project. 

The blanket of snow in combination with the city lights and christmas lights created a very nice winter/christmas scene and I wanted to capture that. For the christmas cards I used a long exposure technique called light painting, where I in essence write in the air with the flashlight on my phone. This same technique I used for the Port Moody Winter Night Project and instead of writing "Merry X-Mas" I simply wrote "Port Moody".
