From an anchorage while aboard the schooner Passing Cloud near the east end of Houston Stewart Channel at Rose Harbour.

Such a beautiful part of the world! Wonderfully captured…

Thank you Mic – it is an entrancing place to visit – I have been lucky enough to spend several weeks pretty much in this exact spot working on projects on an island that is behind me in this scene.
The flow of that image is a delight for the eyes – three repetitions with the third one dominating and on the right of the images where it needs to be. I love it.
Thank you so much Andy, and for explaining what it is you like about the shot.
I like the image too, but think the vignette is a bit of a problem. The lens I was using vignettes quite heavily at 16mm and f2.8. I forget to shoot it a bit less wide open sometimes, and then can have a pronounced vignette to deal with. This was one image where the lens profile corrections in Lightroom were not up to the task, and I was too busy to fiddle with it. So, I thought I would try making a virtue out of it, and enhance it. WordPress compression artifacts then did there own thing, including adding some blue/purple tones. I think it needs some work, but probably is worth the effort when i can find some time.
This is just beautiful. Those reflections are unreal! We must have sailed past/near this spot on our cruise, but we didn’t get close enough to admire the place in proper detail. Such a shame, I’d love to go back for views like this!
P.S. Hello from the UK side of the family!
Hi Rachel – hello to the UK cousins! What a surprise to see you in in my comments section today. I was sad to miss you guys when you passed through the area last month but there was no way to get back from the field for a visit.
You will have passed quite close to this spot (relative to Europe anyway!). Next time you might want to book a tour on a small cruise with daily opportunities to get ashore at interesting places. I was very impressed with my time on this schooner and how many terrific experiences the passengers had. It is a nice way to go.
gorgeous photo…brightened my day.
Thank you Sherry 🙂
Trick photography – a greyscale background with a colour shot of the island photoshopped onto it. Its not that hard to do.
Hey Mario, that might be possible but as I don’t know how to use Photoshop, I can’t verify the possibility.
Looks like someone towed that bright island into the scene and forgot it there.
Hi Richard – perhaps it is a transformed whale. This is after all the anchorage in front of the old Rose Harbour whaling station where large objects were being towed all the time for a few decades.
