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.

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.

Wind Blown Tree
This is a rare photo of a tree that works. It does a few things to make that happen - the tree has a completly independent silhoutte, there is a human scale element in the photo to provide scale and the lighting allows you to find it. These are rare circumstances.

Tree Beside Hotel
This patch of Lupin really doesn't belong here - it's probably escaped from the Australian garden next door and making a break for the ocean.

Olympic Village Sunset And Moon Rise
This is the fill images shot at 28mm.
Photography for this sequence started at 6:59pm and lasted 929 frames (roughly every 8 seconds) until 9:02pm. As the sun fell, the exposure the moon became over exposed.

Exposure started at f22, 1/400th of a second, ISO 400 (under exposed by 2 stops)
Exposure ended at f5.6, 1.3 seconds, ISO 400 (under exposed by 2 stops)

In post, I brighten the image, but keep the whites and highlights down. If you expose correctly, you generally get blown out skies and highlights.

Moonrise Over Olympic Village
This is a pretty tight crop out of images shot at 28mm.
Photography for this sequence started at 7:42pm and lasted 242 frames (roughly every 8 seconds) until 8:14pm. As the sun fell, the exposure the moon became over exposed.
Exposure started at f8, 1/400th of a second, ISO 400 (under exposed by 2 stops)
Exposure ended at f7.1, 1/13th of second, ISO 400 (under exposed by 2 stops)

Sunset At Fishermans Wharf
This turned out to be more tricky that I was expecting. This was 998 frames starting at 7:01pm on April 19th (1/400 of a second at f11), ending at 9:14pm (5 second exposure at f5). It was shot at 28mm. The camera is in shutter priority and I drop the shutter time in half again and again as the lighting gets dark.

The tricky part was that I was on a floating dock and I didn't realize at the time, but every time I moved, the dock shifted. I used Fiji to register the images, but my Mac only have enough RAM (16GB) to do 1/3 of the video at a time.

Ferry Wharf At Granville Island
This dock is normally quite busy with sea bus customers, but with Covid, that is all shut down. I started taking photos at 7:23pm (1/100 at f20) and ended 621 frames later at 8:46pm (2.5 seconds at f10).
The dock is so large that me walking around didn't change the camera pointing angle.
