Nr Terrace, B.C.

On our last day we headed down the Skeena to the
remains of the ghost town site of Port Essington.
The cannery town was founded in 1871 and introduced
the first cold storage plant in the north in 1892.
The cannery closed down in the 1940s and fires destroyed
the remaining buildings in 1961 and 1965.
Now we found the town buried in undergrowth with a hint
of its former inhabitants here and there. For anyone

Really has a ghostly feel and look to this scene, the blue tones of the river and mountains are dramatic. Excellent composition ! V

This is such a beautiful scene. It looks like a scene made of silver and could be from a land only read about and existing in our imaginations. ~V~

Dramatic sky over so-smooth water; a wonderful landscape and image remarkably effective in tones of subtle blue and grey.

What a wonderful effect, almost a monotone in blue! v
