This is the view northwest from Mt. Erskine, Saltspring Island, BC, Canada. Mt Erskine reaches to (approximately) 440 metres elevation. The large body of water is Stuart Channel with Vancouver Island (Crofton) on the left and Saltspring Island in the foreground and on the right. Penelakut Island lies in Stuart Channel at centre right. The distance from the camera to the mill at Crofton (where smoke and steam can bee seen rising) is approximately 8 km.

This photo was taken on 2014-05-27 when atmospheric conditions favoured beautiful cumulus clouds growing over warm ground. Sea conditions were calm with very regular smooth waves and some wind riffling leading to blurred reflections of clouds and sky.
