It does not matter what the subject of you photo, when you are on the water, you do not want a bright sunny day. Guests in the lodge are often upset as most mornings are overcast with the clouds burning off by noon. That is the nature of the north coast and that is good. Bright sun reflecting off the water makes for a poor picture whether of a grizzly bear on the shore, eagle in a tree or orca swimming. Most afternoons on the water are spent maneuvering the boat so the sun is at our backs to improve your chance of a good photo.
