Bradshaw’s Photo Highlight: Tour around Quatsino Sound

“I’m really happy the way the water leads the eye through the image”

I had it in my mind, I would take an early morning boat ride and tour around Quatsino Sound in hopes of getting a few photos of some sea otters. That was the plan anyway. But not to worry, I have found that if the light is just right, subjects will reveal themselves. It was after I motored around Drake Island and started heading back for home when I come upon this image. I saw the layers of blue framed by the mountains and wondered if my camera could duplicate what my eye was seeing. I decided to apply a polarizing filter to the camera and a 24 – 70 mm lens. This is one time where I turned on the live view and used the LCD screen to frame the shot. I did this because I could stand up in the boat and use the camera’s level and histogram. The level helped me with the horizon and the histogram made sure I kept the exposure correct. I’m really happy the way the water leads the eye through the image to the shades of light blue mountains.
