Fotoeins Friday: Harbour Air flight over the Salish Sea

The Salish Sea, 3 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.

For the opening weekend of the Comox Valley BC Shellfish & Seafood Festival (2015), we flew Harbour Air between Vancouver on the British Columbia mainland and Comox on Vancouver Island. In the present image from the return flight to Vancouver, the plane flies over the waters of Georgia Strait, passing the southern tip of Texada Island (port side) with the mainland’s Sunshine Coast in the background.

I made the photo on 15 June 2015 with a Canon 6D (mark 1), 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/250-sec, f/16, ISO400, and 47mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at as
