Dawn Light in B&W
Dawn was typically viewed as we went to work at the Kilgii Gwaay site the first few days, and sunrise was viewed as it lit the shores opposite the site while we worked, as in the above picture.
Every morning brought its own variations. The views to the east out Houston Stewart Channel to Hecate Strait were mostly taken in a hurry as it is not a time to dawdle and delay everyone else. They were from the landing by the cabin before we set out, the dock if I was helping to get the boat or from the boat itself. The views from shore are during the early morning if I could find a few minutes to capture the light on the shore across from the site along the north side of Kunghit Island, or across to the ESE at Rose Harbour.
Many of these images are just as nice in colour (and I am sure to many viewers, nicer), but I thought a monochrome series also works well. Colour some other time.

I was accompanied on this trip by one of the Quimper Hittys, Tansy who is blogging about the trip from a doll’s view and you can find those posts here.
