When I moved to Kitimat, this was one of the first places I visited because I wanted to see the ocean. Over the years, it has become one of my favorite places to visit. Across the water you can see Kitamaat Village, which is a 20 minute drive off of the highway. On the right is a tug service and just beyond that is the Marine Search and Rescue HQ.

It was a cloudy rainy night, and the nip of late fall was in the air. You can see some definition in the clouds.

This photo was taken using a canon 18-55mm at 18mm with an f/11 aperture. 30 second shutter speed at ISO 400

Was driving to Prince Rupert for work recently, only a few clouds in the sky. I looked out my window and seen a gorgeous sunset in the horizon. There was a rest area just a few hundred metres away, so I stopped. I got out of my vehicle, set up my tripod and set my exposure. I used the remote on my phone for this one, I didn't want to disturb the camera as the shutter opened. Out popped this photo, and with a bit of editing, this came to be!

I love the hard contrast between the mountains and the sky. The orange and golden yellows in the middle fade into a creamy blue. As you get higher into the sky, the blue dark with wisps of clouds. All the colors reflecting off of the ocean ripples which are softened from the long shutter speed.

I made sure to capture this as the lowest ISO that I could, so I kept it at 100, and kept the shutter open for 15 seconds. I wanted to let as much light in while still getting a sharp image, so I felt f5.6 could accomplish this.
