Queen of Nanaimo

The coloring against the deep blue water is amazing.

Kayaks

Here are four kayaks on a dock with some great shadows.  Quite truthfully it is hard to take a bad picture of a kayak.  They have such interesting lines.

Junk

This photo of a modern junk was taken from the bow of a rather large car ferry as it was bearing down on the sailboat.  My telephoto isn’t quite powerful enough to see the scared look on the sailors’ faces but I’m sure it was there.  Technically sailboats do have the right of way over powered vessels however when there is such a size difference I think the ferry in practical terms has the right of way.  With just a minute or less to spare the sailboat was able to make a quick loop to avoid getting hit.


 

I really like the red sails on this boat.  It’s not something you see on too many boats in Canada.

A Variety of Fuels

These fuel containers were strapped to the deck of a pretty beaten up saiboat from Alaska.  I was just amused by the colors and the repetition.

Bow – Wow

I was visiting Ganges Harbor on Saltspring Island with some friends and we happened upon a boat show where we were able to board a bunch of working and pleasure boats of various sizes and types.  This is a fancy cruiser with an interesting shadow cast across the bow.

Two Types of Fishers

I like this shot because of the contrast between the “fishbird” and his simple equipment and technique and the fishermen and their methods.  My bets are on the bird for getting the biggest haul.  This photo was taken in the bay at Sayulita Mexico.

Follow the Leader

In 2006 my family and I went to Hawaii.  We stayed a couple of days at Waikiki beach and this was the scene the first night we were there.  It seems a bit strange that all of the boats seem to be in a line right along the horizon but it makes for an interesting photograph.

Solitude

I took this with my 300mm telephoto.  This windsurfer was way out there all by himself enjoying some great wind.  He was really flying.

Sailboat and Liftspan

I love the blues in this picture.  Take notice of the snow on the hills in the background.
