The Pesuta Shipwreck

Here is an image of the Pesuta Shipwreck on the Queen Charlotte Islands that I made in September of 1993. The Pesuta was under tow by the tug Imbrecaria in Hecate Strait and was struck by a heavy south east gale on December 11th, 1928, all that remains of this 2000 ton craft is the bow section which is loacted just north of the Tlell River of Graham Island. This picture was part of my current show on at Sooke Harbour House and sold on my opening day which made me happy. The picture was made with a Tachihara view camera and a 120mm lens, T-Max 100 film, I believe I used some filtration, I think a #15 yellow filter.
