On the Water
For most of the past three weeks I have been cruising around southern Haida Gwaii aboard a beautiful wood schooner the Passing Cloud,
It was work (or perhaps “work”) and thus I was running full tilt much of the time. But it was fun work which allowed and even required frequent use of a camera. I wish I had taken a 300 mm lens with me as the wildlife was spectacular though a bit distant.
This is a black-footed albatross we saw a couple of miles west of Cape St. James, one of 13 that we counted in a short run up the west side of Kunghit Island. Many were sitting on the water surface, which explained for me, after years of wondering, how the inhabitants of the nearby 10,700 year old Kilgii Gwaay site would be able to successfully hunt them.
