I shot this the morning after a snow storm had gone through .
This boat was shot with the village of Opitsat in the background. Opitsat is on Meares island.
Large Coast Guard vessels come into Tofino on regular basis to pick up/clean all the channel buoys.
They do a great job.
They also make great subjects to take pictures of.
It’s amazing to see in detail the amount of power these small birds use to get into the air.
This sunrise is looking down Browning Pass.
This shot has true colour & was amazing to watch!
I have many sunsets,but sunrises are uncommon. Normally we are all still sleeping when a sunrise happens,but a sunset happens when we are all awake. So I have many sunsets & few sunrises.
This is one.
This shot was taken looking SW, with Felice Island on the right & Grice point on the left.
It’s probably the main channel boats/ships use to come in or leave Tofino.
Clouds to me ,can really enhance a shot.
These Cirrus were coming in at a high altitude. They provide a nice addition & make the shot. I had to run behind & parallel to the boat & place him so that the boat had open ocean behind him. That way,none of the blackness of the islands infer with the subjects shape & it is more clearly seen in it’s structure.
When you get great clouds like this,you need a primary subject……..like the Coast Guard.
I remember looking around for any kayaker’s and couldn’t find any. I used the Coast Guard Cutter”Cape Anne”,however,I was on the wrong side of the light. Couldn’t do anything about it. Sometimes you just can’t get what you want with a subject.
