As you probably know by now, I love boating. Probably as much as I love photography. Sometimes I even get to combine the two.
I made this photo while boating this summer in Boundary Pass, which marks the border between Canada and the USA. The Turn Point Lighthouse marks the point where the border takes a sharp turn.

It doesn’t always look like this! This was a particularly calm and clear day when there was still quite a bit of snow on the Olympic Mountains in the background. I loved how the ocean was so smooth and soft in contrast to the rugged mountains.

Beautiful, serene photo! You almost forget there are mountains and think they are clouds! Lovely!

Love your image of Turn Point. I’m writing a first novel about the grounding of a freighter that on Turn Point that spills all its bunker fuel out into the Salish Sea. The work is intended as a wake up call to what a larger spill from a laden tanker would look like if the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline project moves forward, putting thirty laden tankers a month down Boundary Pass. I may want to use your image of the point if I can afford it. Any proceeds from this project will go to organization advocating for whales, primarily orcas. If you E-mail me Ill send a synopsis and author bio. Thanks, Dave
