Sunset in Parallel by Martin Smart

Best viewed large

Featured in “The World As We See It, or as we missed it” August 2012

A silhouette of Bowen Island against a very dramatic sunset on a July evening. The photograph was taken whilst travelling by boat across the Strait of Georgia from Vancouver to Vancouver Island, BC. Thin layers of cloud formed as parallel lines in the sky and reflected down on to the ocean as seen in the foreground.

Canon 20D
1/50sec f8 ISO 200
