Unstable air mass always creates interesting weather patterns . This was the story March 21 when another front approached BC’s west coast. We were doing our regular pre-dinner boating circuit (walk the dogs on Saturna, check out the sea lions on the Belle Chain, home to Mayne Island for the hockey game) when, on our return, the weather started to change. WIth unstable air masses, it doesn’t take much for moist air to be bumped up causing dramatic cloud formation. Shooting into the sun results in a dramatic image.
