Sun in the blue sky and air temperature of about 29C. This was an early morning fishing trip on the Okanagan lake. Usually the morning sees a calm water surface, but this state should not be taken for granted. When fishing you need to keep a watchful eye towards the mountains in the background.
Trolling at a speed of approximately 2mph, with such surroundings, lulls you into a false sense of security. The wind can rise from the area toward the left of the picture and gusts can reach 18 to 20 knots with waves which are short in wavelength and often changing in direction. This can happen in about 10 to 15 minutes.
Enough of the gloom – sit back and imagine yourself travelling in the boat and looking back at this view and being mesmerised by the waves generated by the propellor.
