Sky Watch

Here is one pulled from the files that was taken years ago. This is heading home to Seattle via the Inside Passage of Alaska after a fishing season in the North Pacific.

There are many Sky Watchers all over the world and they can easily be found by clicking here.

That is a seiner so I’m guessing you too might have fished on seine boats? The scene of course looks very much like something I have seen many times and I’d guess by the photo that it might have been taken in Clarence Straights?

That is really awesome. It looks like the sky is blending right into the sea

Marcel, the vessel running with us was a crabber/dragger converted from a steel hulled Gulf shrimper. From that photo I might have guessed a seiner too. I can't remember exactly where on the inside that was taken. As you know it's hundreds of miles of waterway with similar topography and weather. Was always happy the inside was there for protection though, when it was howling on the outside :)

Lovely shot.

I have been dealing with rheumatoid arthritis in my hands. The chemotherapy drug doesn't stop the pain so my typing is limited.

Cool shot -- wish I was there... --Maybe not on a rocking boat, but I think you know what I mean...
Best regards, Don

Awesome is the word. Not sure I'd want to be in the boat under that cloud.
