Ship, Juan de Fuca Strait

Photograph by Jason van der Valk, Your Shot

A large vessel makes her way through the Juan de Fuca Strait near Victoria, British Columbia, on the southern shores of Vancouver Island.

Through heavy cloud cover over the ocean, the sun threw down many rays. I could see this ship nearing the bright light and waited until it was in the middle.

I exposed for the extreme highlights, leaving the rest underexposed and presenting a very dramatic image.
