Bute Inlet Water colors
Waiatt Bay, Octopus Islands Marine Park
This morning, on another incredibly clear day, we sailed back down the Bute Inlet with a following wind. Again, we were dazzled by the endless mountain ridges and peaks of granite and glacier, and by the good fortune to have wind to sail.
I spent most of the morning trying to capture the odd water color caused by glacial melt and mud in the outflow down the Inlet. In case you happen to track these things, the best and truest results came with mixes of cerulean blue and raw sienna.
Today is perhaps the hottest day we have ever experienced on the coast of British Columbia. Nearly everyone swam in the salt water to cool off. We suspect that our loved ones south of here and elsewhere may be even hotter.
