Okanagan Dusk & Dawn



Since posting these images I have done a little research and found out that this  sturdy looking boat has the eloquent name CN No.6 Tug. There is an interesting write-up about the tugboat here.

  1. It seems you can make the nature to hold their breath,
    and make me to hold my breath.—- then slowly taking cold air in =
    this sensation is very much unique to your photography.

  2. Wow! These are absolutely stunning. Each image is different, yet enhances the series as a whole. They are simple, yet incredibly moving. Your work keeps getting better and better. Thank you for sharing 🙂

  3. Beautiful series, Karen…love the still water shots with the boat…can almost imagine all of the power just resting there…waiting…but loving the peace until it’s needed. Very nice.

  4. Hi Karen
    Although I haven’t done a lot of commenting I am enjoying going through the summer with you. I hope your images are getting seen and represented in other ways besides the internet, which I think is great exposure.
