Riding high out of the rough sea, a freighter passes the lighthouse on Trial Island, off the southern tip of Vancouver Island,British Columbia, Canada. A sudden storm brought gale-force winds and heavy seas to the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the main shipping passage from the Pacific Ocean to the ports of Victoria, Vancouver and Seattle.
