Dark clouds

Dark clouds over Vancouver

I can never resist spending time out on deck on a ferry crossing, even if the wind is howling and threatening to make off with my hat. We left Vancouver under heavy grey clouds, and emerged in dazzling sunshine part-way across the Strait of Georgia.

I don’t think the clouds were quite as threatening as I’ve made them appear in this photo – I just liked to boost the contrast a little and rein-in the highlights to give it a more dramatic appearance. I thought about a black-and-white conversion too, but in the end just decided to desaturate the photo which left a little bit of blue sky as a visual cue. Of course, having the ferry heading into the clouds is really what makes the picture.
