Sunset on the Inner Passage
The Inner Passage is a series of straits along the West Coast of Canada and Alaska where the open waters of the Pacific Ocean are shielded by a string of coastal islands. Ships can navigate through these narrow passages without the threat from waves and wind from Pacific storms. All things are relative and the storms in the Inner Passage are pretty spectacular, but not as severe as on the open ocean. This sunset took a long time to happen. First, it was late into the night hours, about 10:00 pm and second, the ship was moving and it was difficult to get the right focus and keep the horizon level.
