Fotoeins Friday: Parking lot in the Salish Sea

On the rising flanks of the North Shore mountains, Cypress Mountain affords one of the most impressive views of Vancouver and beyond. Container vessels are anchored in the waters of English Bay (Salish Sea), and there are often more ships than the Port of Vancouver can handle at a given time. With ships frequently “holding” at the entrance to Vancouver’s harbour, I’ve called this staging area “the penalty box” or “the parking lot”. Parked in front of the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club (RVYC) and the Jericho Sailing Club (JSC) are seven container ships at the indicated anchorage positions (see map below).

I made the photo above on 13 April 2014 with the Canon EOS6D, EF 24-105 zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/320s, f/8, ISO1000, and 105mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-5i6.
