Landscape With Boats

This is the part of the Gorge known as the Selkirk Waters. It is a wide part of the Gorge between the Bay Street (Point Ellice) Bridge and the Tillicum Bridge. Here we are looking up the Gorge (westward) towards the Tillicum Bridge.This photo was taken from the Selkirk Trestle that bisects the Selkirk Waters and is part of the Galloping Goose Trail.

WOW! Positively gorgeous.HDR perhaps? I love the HRD effects on photos.

Thanks all for your kind comments.

@Stephanie - yes, HDR. I use it quite often actually but normally I tune it down so it may not be so obvious (scroll down to see last Tuesday's shot). I liked this photo but it was a little flat and I wanted a little more painterly definition, especially in the clouds and the trees, and tone-mapping with Photomatix gave me just what I wanted.

The trestle and area is a great place for photos.

Years ago there were at most one or two points at anchor here. Now it seems to be a collection point for junkers and boats on their last legs.

And it's a safe bet that these boats are discharging their sewage into the water...
