While attending and competing in the Plein Air Grand Prix - annual event in Steveston - I always take extra time to explore the inlets and waterways of this unique location and visit Finn Slough.
I thankfully started early on this piece - as the owner of the motorcycle arrived (tour bus driver) and promptly took off. His bus full of whale watchers was very keen on my progress.
It is always a challenge working on location - you anticipate the light and shadows will change - but usually the boats leave, a truck parks right in the view or someone comes to take away your subject. I always start with a few good photos and was able to finish the details on the bike later.
