This is the Open Edition Art Print of "Cautiously...". The image was captured at the entrance to Shallow Bay on Sucia Island. A long exposure reveals the motion of water entering bay on a flood tide. Here, the lichen-covered rocks in the foreground vaguely remind me of a whale's back.
"Cautiously... A Soft Blue Rushes in" is one of my classic film-based images from the San Juan Islands.
"Cautiously" was captured just before sunrise, at Shallow Bay on Sucia Island. An early morning low tide reveals unmarked rocks at the bay's entrance. For this image, I used my large format 4 x 5 view camera. A long exposure creatively captured the slow-motion of water entering the bay on a flood tide. Lichen-covered rocks in the foreground vaguely remind me of a whale's back.
Since 1993 my wife Bev and I have been exploring the San Juan Islands by boat. We have a 23 ft. boat called "Visual Pursuit. It allows us to anchor in some incredible places on the water. The small opening (in the middle of this photograph) has exposure to westerly winds. It's tempting to anchor near the entrance, to take advantage of witnessing an eye-popping sunset as the sun sinks below the distant horizon. Most mariners that spend the night here anchor in an area to the left of the frame. Be cautious if you anchor here. If the westerly wind comes up in the night, your sleep might be interrupted by a rocking boat, halyards banging on masts, dragging anchors, and people yelling in the dark. It's a beautiful place, but anchor here carefully.
Please note: "Premium Limited Edition Prints" are exclusive art print products that I personally print, inspect, number, sign, and title in my Bellingham Studio. A certificate of authenticity is also included. For more details click HERE.
