The imprint of man, Port Angeles, Washington, 2009

I made this image from the ferry bringing us back to the United States from Victoria, British, Columbia. I was struck by the imprint man makes on nature as we approached the US coast, the rolling hills of Washington became visible, standing green in the summer sun. The waters below us were blue, as was the sky overhead. Yet as we moved closer, the green hills around Port Angeles sprouted a matrix of industrial chimneys some of them belching smoke into the afternoon air. I made this image with a long telephoto lens from several miles out to sea.
