This second photograph in the “Night in Halifax” series this week was taken over the August long weekend. After heading out to the harbour for some sailing only to develop engine troubles, we ended up spending a relaxing evening in the Armdale Marina, enjoying the lovely light. The industrial lights around the marina emitted an orangey-pink light that contrasted wonderfully with the velvety blue of the evening sky, and the water was very calm. This resulted in beautiful and interesting reflections of the moored sailboats around us. I like this image for its calmness, colour contrasts and the way the masts aligned to create an off-centre triangle pattern in the sky and in the water.
