Heriot Bay, Quadra Island

although island residents have long been involved in fishing, logging, and even mining (a century ago the short-lived Lucky Jim mine produced copper, silver, and gold), the largest employer today is tourism...the average population of about 2700 people can triple during the summer months, providing work for locals

A wonderful shot of these commercial fishing boats. The person in red adds a nice sense of scale and the lighting, colors and details are excellent. I can see why people would want to visit. Voted

Nice shot of this fishing fleet, David. Judging by the bowline of the two on the right, they have some age on them. V
Helen Betts21-May-2014 17:12
Excellent composition with some great reflections. From the size of those boats, there must still be some serious fishing going on there. Or maybe they take the tourists out? V.

Lots of stuff above decks that dwarf the fellow in red. Light and reflections are really nice. V
