Fire Be­low

Passage Maker - - Viewfinder -

My con­verted Bri­tish fire­boat, (“Fire in the Belly,” Oc­to­ber 2013), fi­nally sailed the In­side Pas­sage. Alaska’s Glacier Bay Na­tional Park was the ul­ti­mate des­ti­na­tion. Hol­land Amer­ica’s 778foot cruise ship, held sta­tion nearby as her pas­sen­gers en­joyed the high­light of their trip. I ra­dioed the cruise liner to ask if some­one could take a photo of our ves­sel. The re­sponse was a po­lite but frosty, “Our pho­tog­ra­phers are busy with our pas­sen­gers.”

For­tu­nately, a nearby cruis­ing cou­ple over­heard the fu­tile ex­change. “We’ll take your pic­ture if you take ours.” In this photo, I couldn’t re­sist show­ing the sheer size of the loom­ing over us. Love to shoot pic­tures? Want to share your adventures? Send us your fa­vorite high-res­o­lu­tion pho­tos with a short de­scrip­tion, and we’ll show­case our fa­vorites in Viewfinder.
