The many moods of Georgia Straight are available to anyone that rides the BC Ferries on a regular basis. This was my good fortune for a good part of 2017 as I was working in the southwest corner of Vancouver Island while living in the Lower Mainland. I would catch the first ferry in the morning to put me on a job site in the small town of Sooke, BC by 10AM and then catch an evening ferry on the return trip to allow me a full day on the job.
On this particular morning, as the ferry slipped the dock in Tsawwassen, I was treated to the simple, graphic scene seen here. I had to hurry to capture it because two of its strongest elements were to be very short-lived. The sun just peeking over the horizon would soon disappear behind the cloud bank and the strong diagonal element of the edge of that cloud bank against the pure blue sky would be lost as we passed underneath it less than 2 minutes later.
One of the more enjoyable aspects of photography for me is not just seeing what's there but anticipating what's possible. This image is a good example of exactly that principle.
