Fotoeins Friday: Iona Jetty in the Salish sea

The Salish Sea, 4 of 5.

The Salish Sea is a body of water encompassing Georgia Strait, Howe Sound, Burrard Inlet, Puget Sound, and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The sea is named after the Coast Salish people who are the first inhabitants of the region. The renaming without displacing the old geographic names occurred in 2010.

The Iona Jetty is a 4 kilometre (2.5 mile) finger of land which begins at the Iona Beach Regional Park and stretches out into Georgia Strait. After your walk or bike out to the very tip of the jetty, you’ll feel like you’re standing in the middle of the sea. In this image, Mount Wrottesley looms over Point Grey, wood-chip barges, the North Arm Jetty, and the waters of the Salish Sea. Further information about Iona Beach Regional Park is provided by Vancouver Trails and Metro Vancouver.

I made the photo on 30 April 2016 with a Canon 6D (mark 1) with 70-300 glass and the following settings: 1/640-sec, f/16, ISO1000, and 280mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at as
