20,000 Leagues Under The Sea

Artist's Description

Growing up in the land locked prairies of Alberta, the opportunities to see any ocean-going vessels were relatively slim to none… lol! Fast forward a bunch of years and I find myself living ocean side on a BIG chunk of rock tossed out into the ill-tempered North Atlantic ocean. When the fog actually breaks over our BIG piece of rock there are ample opportunities to photograph the amazing ocean scenes that present themselves. Well, on this particular morning the fog actually didn’t break… in fact it was almost as thick as my morning coffee. (I was up at 5am… so the coffee needed to be very thick lol!!) Since I love shooting in foggy conditions, I took a drive down to the harbor and amongst the usual riff-raff of ocean-going vessels & colorful fishing trawlers I saw something I’ve never seen before. There from the depths rose a slick dark tower from the harbors’ dark waters.

Could it really be what I thought it was??? Yep, you betcha it was. There before me, floating in the murky water was a real submarine!! It was soooo super uber cool. It even came equipped with men with machine guns jealously guarding their prized vessel. I pulled the car over and started shooting … (with my camera) lol!!

I took a few snaps and grudgingly headed off to work… but for the rest of the day my imagination was filled with adventures on & below the high seas…
