Queen Charlotte Islands Shipwreck

This is the bow section of the Pesuta on Graham Island, it was a 264 foot long log carrier and was wrecked December 11, 1928. I made my first visit to these magical islands in September of 1993 and made this photo with my 4 x 5 view camera and a 120mm Schneider lens. Once there, I was captivated by the serenity of the place after a 6 1/2 hour ferry ride across Hecate Straight, I felt I had arrived in some sort of exotic foreign land. I made my second trip in 1997 when I was part of a group of five kayakers who made a 100 mile journey to the south part of the islands, on that trip I took about 80 pounds of camera gear which included my 4 x 5 view camera, but that is another story.
