I was actually chasing an outbound ship, hoping that the setting sun might intercept it as it made the turn near Warrenton.
The timing was off, as it was likely to be, but as I framed the shot that wasn’t, I noticed the small craft sweeping out of the Young’s Bay channel.
It was a bowpicker (gillnet boat) hauling for home with both the sun and the wind at its back. I tracked it for several minutes until it swung closer to my position. Some of the waves threw huge walls of spray.
