Fotoeins Friday: from Island to Mainland over the Salish Sea

The Salish Sea, 2 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.

From the perch up on Grouse Mountain, afternoon winter sun illuminates the waters of Georgia Strait as a BC Ferries’ ship from Nanaimo on Vancouver Island is on approach to the mainland terminal at Horseshoe Bay.

I made the photo on 7 Feb 2012 with a Canon 450D, 70-300 glass, and the following settings: 1/320-sec, f/5.6, ISO100, 250mm focal length (400mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-ddu.

Fotoeins Friday: Sunny sail across the Salish Sea

The Salish Sea, 1 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 picture above is of Active Pass where two BC Ferries’ ships navigate not only the narrow channel in the Gulf Islands of British Columbia, but also must pass each other as they traverse the route on the Salish Sea between Tsawwassen on the mainland and Swartz Bay on Vancouver Island.

I made the photo on 25 July 2007 with a Canon A510 Powershot. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-7YU.
