This happens many times in Tofino during the summer. It gets hot & than the fog moves into the harbour. This is a so called “fog tongue” lapping into the harbour.
Whenever I see it rolling in,I try to stay further east & get away from it! The fog not only snuffs the light for me & but makes it uncomfortably cold!
The weather was great today so I got out & headed up into Fortune Channel for bears. It was high tide,so I wasn’t exactly expecting a huge number of bears,& I was right. Found only one tonight.
I recognized this guy from last year. He has a scar above his right eye! Very gentle creature. Glad I ran into him or I would of struck out!
He wandered into the bush after a while & I started to head back for sunset. When I got to Tsapee narrows I could see thin clouds to the west & new that the sunset was going to be muted at best!
At Tsapee the light was great! The Daredevil was up to his old tricks once again! He came in so close to me that you can see my shadow on him! When was the last time you saw a wild eagle do that?
Continued on to Deadman Island to visit with Romeo & Juliette. She even got off her egg(s) to come over & say hi! The light was so muted that I couldn’t get too excited about it.
Wasn’t a outstanding shoot but still way better than what most people did I’m sure!
I saw the “Tamanawas” heading back into town when I first entered Fortune Channel. It had just harvested salmon at the Creative Salmon Dawley Pass site.
Notice how much less a shot can be without clouds! Clouds are very important for sunset shots!
I wonder if it parks it’s self?
Looks like he had his trusty 4 legged friend with him for a sunset row!
Not sure who owns this, but I never see it move!
They weren’t flying any country flag. Which leads me to think they must of been American! Who else could afford something like this! I have no idea how much this boat cost,but I’m thinking half a mil at least! The wake coming off of this boat was MASSIVE!
She was set up for fishing. You have to have fairly deep pockets to afford a fishing boat like this!
The Sherman T had a load of hay destined for Clayoquot Wilderness at the end of Bedwell Sound.
I use to canoe and camp down there but since this resort has parked it’s butt right on the trail( & technically I would be trespassing to go to Strathcona Park) I stay away. I go camping to get away from these places!
The hay is for the horses they have. They take rich clients on horses up into Strathcona Park. They have their own road(use to be the parks) into the park and your not allowed to camp in the park without checking with them first to make sure that they do not have any guests going in that day.
Money talks and I walk………away!
This landing marine vessel is owned by “Clayoquot Wilderness”. Clayoquot Wilderness is a remote resort north of Tofino that only the rich can afford. Well………you and I “can” use it if you want to fork out $1700 a night to sleep in a glorified prospectors tent!
As a X geologist,I have used those type of tents many times! Of course they would have power,silk pillows etc and such.
Glad to see someone’s got money out there!
This is their landing vessel that they use to transport large cargo. Looks like they have several cars and a large wrapped something on todays load.
You can see Romeo perched in the background in one of the shots.
That’s Deadman Island.
I have never seen this boat before. It was registered in Port Alberni.
It looked like dad was at the helm and his little girl was on the bow and his son was at the port stern.
This is where I beached my boat to take advantage of a Heron hunting in the shallows. I needed something in the foreground for that fantastic pink sky!
