Vancouver Island LighthouseVancouver Island LighthouseWhile sailing from Vancouver to the southern California coast, we went past Vancouver Island. I noticed this lighthouse nicely framed by conifer trees. The seagull just happened to fly in. Vancouver Island Lighthouse

While sailing from Vancouver on a cruise from Vancouver to Los Angeles, we slowly passed beautiful Vancouver Island.

As we passed this lighthouse with the layers of mountains, the image became apparent.

The seagull flying right by the lighthouse was a bonus! The seagull was not compensated in any way!

The ship was probably doing 10-15 knots - certainly not still in the water. I shot this at 1/640 of second which worked well.

There was no opportunity to attempt a long exposure, not on a boat, especially one that's moving.

But why black and white?

This was shot late in the day and the color image was mostly various shades of blue, even the conifer trees. No matter what I tried in post processing, it just never looked right to me. But when I converted this to black & white, it just worked.

More images of Vancouver - which is a beautiful city in so many ways - can be found in a gallery on my website - www.davidandersonward.com/vancouver

There are some very cool and serene sunset shots off the back of the ship as we returned to Vancouver, as well as some beautiful panoramas of the city of Vancouver. Check it out!

This image is a 21" x 15" print. It was then professionally mounted and framed with an archival matte in a 27" x 21" frame. This would be perfect in any home or office, or your home office.

This can also be provided on HD Metal, which is ideal for wall art. In either medium it is available in many other sizes, too.

How can we help you?!
