As the golden light of the rising sun at Friday Harbor raced for the horizon, I knew I wanted to find a special subject. The warm light was a perfect source for this wooden boat and reflection. When I noticed it, I took a spot, locked down the tripod, and waited for the sun to do its thing!
One of the coolest things about being on a photo workshop with 20 or 30 other photographers is when you get to see how differently all of these creative people see the same locations through their lenses. I was quite humbled at our presentation evening when Moose Peterson (the lead instructor) from DLWS had chosen this image as one of his favorites.
