13 Dec 18	Today's Theatrical Thursday submission isn't, but rather a set of two documentary images side by side. Never done such before and I'm not sure I'll ever do it again, but I took both of these images recently and they showcase a couple moods of our large salt water pond, as Puget Sound is frequently called for fun. The mass of land in the background of both frames is Whidbey Island and the two commercial vessels are the Victoria Clipper in the left hand frame and a Washington State ferry in the right hand frame. Both frames were taken in approximately the same time of day about four weeks apart. One obviously in the fog and the other on a stormy morning when a single shaft of light was striking the vessel.  The perspectives are different but I did line up the horizon in both frames. I've done a fair amount of cropping to get both images the same size and horizons situated as they are. As such there isn't a lot of detail remaining but if you were viewing the full frame capture you could read the name of each vessel. Probably not the type of weather most of you would select for a cruise, but the area can be beautiful even in this kind of weather. And when it is cold and clear, as I've shown in a few other images, it can be spectacular. Plus, if you are the kind who likes the "Silent World" this areas offers some of the best diving in the world, but you will definitely need a 3/8 inch wet suit!<br />
