The story behind the image

Earlier that day we had arrived in Ucluelet on Vancouver Island, and we couldn’t wait to explore the area. It was just a short drive from the B&B to the Amphitrite Lighthouse. The sky was clear, it was warm and we were stunned by the fantastic views and the approach of the Blue Hour.

I love this shot because of the silhouette of the lighthouse against the beautiful saturated colors of the sky. And the moon. And the copyspace it provides. Awesome.
