foggy hornby island weekend

Filed under: hornby island — sw @ 11:38 pm

The whole family went to Hornby Island for the weekend, where we have a little house. The weather forecast had been “sun”, but instead it was foggy. Usually one thinks of fog as obscuring the view, but I found it actually makes it easier to see! That’s because so much is blended out.

But fog also produces real effects. Here is a photo of the trees next to our lot. I tried to reproduce Richard Cole’s dramatic paintings. (Richard is a professional painter and used to live on the next block on Adanac Street in Vancouver – his son and our daughters are friends).

Then here is a photo of birds gathering on poles stuck in the water (a dock that didn’t last). I managed to catch one while in the air, which isn’t that easy with these modern digitial cameras, since they need quite a while from click to capture. The grass is green in the foreground – but everything else is black and grey.

And finally, a series of photos showing the ferry approaching out of the dark:
