Photographer's Note

We have returned from a Sierra Club trip through the Inside Passage - the cluster of islands and channels that make up the Alaska Panhandle. Most of the time it was overcast, often rainy :-( but one evening we had a decent sunset (and on our last night, after we left the boat, we had a spectacular sunset - but I'm saving that for later). We were anchored off West Brother Island, in the Stephens Passage between Admiralty Island and the mainland, and we went out in kayaks and the skiff to look at things from water level.

I picked this scene because to my mind it gives a flavor of what a perfect quiet evening can be like on still water that reflects the last rays of the sun through the tall evergreens, mostly hemlock and sitka spruce, and the mountains rising everywhere out of the sea. This kind of water also makes great abstract reflections - see the WS for an example.

Technical: Sharpened in Camera RAW. Bit of curves to strengthen the yellow - TE was washing it out.
