Three Cruise Ships Behind Breakwater
In Vancouver, these ships would have already left. Apparently cruise ships in Victoria leave after 9pm.

Watching Sunset From Life Guard Tower
I don't know when the life guards came off duty, but at sunset sometimes people stood in the life guard tower to get a better view of the sunset. The washed up sailboat was right in front of the tower so I'm surprised the view was actually better.

Crowd Waiting For Sunset
I was impressed how many people came out to watch the sunset. For a gentlemen on a beach chair behind me, watching sunset was almost a religious experience.

Sunset On Chesterman Beach
The lens was set to 29mm. Photography started at 8:06pm, f5.6 at 1/2500th of a second (under exposed 2 stops, ISO 100) and ended at 10:09pm at f5.6, 6 second exposure, ISO 200. There were 918 photos taken at a 8 second interval.
No stabilization required. Exposure compensation in post was pretty easy. Shame there wasn't much of a sunset, but the beach fire at the end really helped. The family did have a metal beach fire basket thing which is required on this beach.

Cherry Blossum With City Sunset
This was my second shot at this sunset. I repositioned so I could get the whole tree in the shot rather than just a branch. I didn't bring quite so wide of a lens.

This is 745 frames, Starting at 7:39pm and ending at 9:16pm. I think sunset was about 8:15. The interval was 8 seconds and I shot in aperture priority mode because I finally figured out how to set my camera to limit the longest exposure in A mode until it starts increasing the sensitivity. The photos started at f/8.0, 1/160th of a second at ISO 100 (exposure is set to under exposed by 2 stops) and it ends at f/8.0, 6 seconds, ISO 160 (still under exposed by 2 stops)
I have manually photoshopped out people walking in front of the camera and a few birds.

Sunset With Cherry Blossom
I started at 7:03pm at f18 at 1/160th of a second (in shutter priority mode) and ended at 625 frames later at 8:47pm at f6.3 and 6 second exposures. The interval was every every 10 seconds. I haven't removed people from this sequence.

Foggy Downtown Sunset
This is 656 frames from 4:01pm until 5:50pm. Exposure at the start was f8 at 1/50th of a second, at end was f8, 4 seconds. The photos are take every 10 second. No stabilization as the camera was on a tripod on solid ground (just outside of the Granville Island Public Market).

This is one of the easiest timelapses ever - the exposure is almost linear (the camera made the correct and consistent guesses) and no stabilization required.

Fog downtown is pretty rare - it usually happens when we transition from wet weather to cold weather in winter.

View From Bed And Breakfast

Sunset is pretty spectacular - that's the Pender Islands across the water.

Sunset Off Deck

Sunset is great.  We are facing northwest off the back deck.

Sunset On Fraser Lake
There is a train on the far side of the lake near the end.

This is 366 shots, 15 seconds apart. It started at f18 and 1/100th of a second and dropped down to f5 and 2.5 second exposures.

Being this far north, the sun doesn't really set so you don't get much of a sunset.

Mount Baker Sunset From Lions Gate
I started taking photos at 7:52pm at f8, 1/400th of a second, ISO 100. I took 1188 photos until 10:30pm at f8, 6 seconds exposures, ISO 450. The exposure interval was every 8 seconds, ISO is in auto so when the camera hits the exposure limit (I limited it to 6 seconds), ISO goes up.

The lens was set to 44mm.

Freighters Under Lionsgate At Sunset
This video took a look of work to get. I tried shooting this once before but the clouds were too heavy which lead to a very blah sunset and I misconfigured the camera (ISO was not in automatic) which lead to a variable interval (the clouds speed up).
This sequence is 1064 frames, taken every 8 seconds. I started at 7:51pm at f6.3, 1/3200 (-2 exposure compensation) and ended at 10:13pm at f4.5, 6 second exposures). It was shot in aperture priority mode.
I was standing on the lions gate bridge which introduces some challenges. First - the bridge has lights and you can see them start to dominate the park lighting in the last 1/3rd of the video. The much bigger problem is that the bridge moves a LOT. The frames have both a vertical translation and rotation element. I used ffmpeg to reduce the motion, but because this image is dominated by the clouds and boats I had to mask out (using a blur) much of the image so that the video stability detect code could find the motion. The code was:
# Gather the source images into a movie:
ffmpeg -framerate 30 -pattern_type glob -i 'DSC_*.jpg' -c:v libx264 LionsgateFreightersHg.mp4

# blur out most of the movie except the cliffs on the left and the mountains on the right
/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg -i LionsgateFreightersHg.mp4 -filter_complex "[0:v]boxblur=50[bg];[0:v]crop=w=1078:h=987:x=0:y=1038[fg];[bg][fg]overlay=0:1038[c];[0:v]crop=w=1125:h=516:x=2114:y=776[fg];[c][fg]overlay=2114:776" -map 0:v blurredVideo.mp4

# Use the blurred video to generate the transform estimates. Because of the minimum constrast requirements, the stability detect can't detect the clouds. ocean or boats.
/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg -i blurredVideo.mp4 -vf vidstabdetect=stepsize=16:shakiness=4:accuracy=15:mincontrast=0.4:show=1 cropVectors.mp4 -f null -

# Use the transform vectors to make the final video.
/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg -i LionsgateFreightersHg.mp4 -vf "vidstabtransform=input=transforms.trf" -crf 20 LionsgateFreightersStabilized.mp4

There are a few large ships in this timelapse. The first is the Bulk Carrier Kinoura followed by the Island Trader Tank Barge and finally the Bulk Carrier Sunny Hope. There are at least a dozen smaller ships including a police boat.
