This image was captured handheld off the stern of a ferry headed for Ketchikan, Alaska via the Inside Passageway. My son and I were on a motorcycle trip (his high school graduation gift) starting from Los Angeles. Since the trip was for him, I was trying not to take too many photos and concentrate on salmon fishing, but the vertical plumes of smoke and billowing mushroom cloud from a old pulp mill at sunset I could not ignore. Only later though would I fully understand the image.
