Prince Rupert is the most important centre on the west coast of northern British Columbia. With a population of around 13,000, it is the major air, water and ground transportation hub.
This sunset image was taken around 21:30, just as the ferry was approaching Prince Rupert. The interesting lighting comes through the use of a gradiated filter to tone down the sky a bit.
You are getting into bushplane country, the transport of choice in the far north. These seaplanes are all variants of the Dehavilland Beaver, one of the best know seaplanes.
- Pros:Pristine landscape
- Cons:It rains - a lot. In fact, it is the wettest major centre in Canada
- In a nutshell:Welcome to the rain!
I'm not sure why, but we got some of the most amazing sunsets over Hecate Strait near Prince Rupert. more travel advice
