Guy Anderson island-scape

Just got back from a trip to Whidbey Island.

In the cold and the overcast, every water-ward vista - other islands always in the horizon - made me think of Guy Anderson paintings.

Here's a comparison: a picture I took early this morning looking at Camano Island from Langley, and a photo of a Guy Anderson painting from 1963 called Haida Fishing Grounds.

Hang on, I'll put the photo of the Anderson picture at top as it lays horizontally. Then my verticle photo can scroll to fade.
