Abstract of forest along the shoreline reflected in the water

Liquid Forest (click to enlarge)

At anchor one quiet evening a couple of summers ago, I noticed how the trees along the shoreline were reflected in the water beside our boat. Although daylight had all but disappeared, I could still see a surprising richness of colour and visible movement of light in the water – reminiscent of an Impressionist painting.

I took this photo, which I call “Liquid Forest”, in Shoal Harbour in the Broughton Archipelago. But if you take time to look closely, you could probably find a similar “painting” in a great many other quiet anchorages all along the coast.

“Liquid Forest” is on display right now at Nanaimo’s Port Theatre, as part of a group show by the Gabriola Photography Club. The show runs until mid-September, so if you’re in downtown Nanaimo, I hope you’ll stop by to have a look at what our talented Island photographers have been up to.
