Ship, Juan de Fuca Strait
This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Photos
A large vessel makes her way through the Juan de Fuca Strait near Victoria, British Columbia, on the southern shores of Vancouver Island.
Through heavy cloud cover over the ocean, the sun threw down many rays. I could see this ship nearing the bright light and waited until it was in the middle.
I exposed for the extreme highlights, leaving the rest underexposed and presenting a very dramatic image.

What Makes This a Photo of the Day? Patience has its rewards, as evidenced here. The dramatic beauty of this photograph, with the lone ship silhouetted against the sunlit swath of ocean, dwarfed by the sea and sky, is what first caught my attention. Hearing the story behind it made me appreciate it even more as an intentional work of art. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
