First Frost

Seahorse before the Sunrise

Last Friday saw the first frost of the season at the marinas and docks in Ganges. And the beginnings of a low layer of fog (caused by the difference between sea and air temperatures) over the water. For the next month or so, the sun rises straight into Ganges harbour making early winter mornings very special.

I believe we’re looking at, from foreground to background: South Pender Island (Pender Bluffs and the entrance to Bedwell Harbour), Saturna Island, Bellingham area in Washington State and Mount Baker.

This uncropped photo was taken from Mount Tuam on Salt Spring Island with a telephoto lens.

Happy Halloween.
Looks like we’ll have at least one group of tiny trick-or-treaters at our house this year. Haven’t seen one at the door in a decade!
