2011, Day 336 - Docked

Another flashback to Alaska from four years ago.  These are the docked fishing boats at Cordova Harbor on a cloudy morning.  It had been raining for most of the trip so we fished in cold downpours in rivers choked with mud churned up by the storms.  We had little luck those days but the day before I took this picture the weather broke and we had some nice days of scattered sunlight that proved very fruitful.  The vignetting you see is the natural effect of the clouds, it is amplified only slightly in the upper right to create a sense of visual balance.

I am hoping that I will be able to go back next fall to fish and to explore Cordova a little more.  In retrospect it looks like a tonemapping dream come true.
