The other day I posted black and white pictures of the dawn light in Gwaii Haanas. The black and white version of this image was the one I led with, and when I posted it I really did like the black and white better than the colour. However, as I have prepared images for Kilgii Gwaay archaeological project posts, I keep on passing this colour version in my folder and it always jumps out at my eye, demanding to be posted as well. So, here it is. I am coming to think that the colour is better than the monochrome.
The picture is taken from Ellen Island looking south towards the north shore of Kunghit Island just west of Rose Harbour. And since I am writing this Friday evening, again, (anyone else notice that Friday evenings seem to come by in a very regular pattern?) and I am feeling tired and lazy, you only get to look at this one image today. I think it stands all on its own very well, but that could be Friday night speaking. If one image is just not enough to satisfy you on a Saturday morning, then click here for a random burnt embers post.
EDIT: As you an see in the comment below, Ken (Oneowner) suggests a crop to improve the image. Here is my interpretation of that suggestion (though choosing a good line for the crop was tricky and I am not sure I found the best one).

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