This location is down Tofino Inlet. It’s on a small islet called Almond Islet.
I do not know this eagle,but visit him on occasion. He’s further down the Inlet,so do not normally go pass Tsapee Narrows. Shear logistics really. It’s a ways.
I liked the snow on the mountains and lined myself up with him in the foreground.
I came across these darling little subjects down Tofino Inlet right by Almond Islet. I couldn’t resist. The wind was gently blowing from the West,so I just went up wind and shut the motor off, and drifted into them. I got very close and they didn’t mind at all.
I loved seeing these guys up close. The light was almost horizontal and very warm .
I saw these two guys out there and waited for them to cross.
The barge being towed in the background is loaded with First growth timber from Clayoquot.
Original growth is a non-renewable resource. I know that they call it “renewable”,but thats for second growth. Their is a huge difference between the two!
All logging of Original Growth has to stop,there isn’t much left and once it’s gone,it’s gone. The only way that these forests will ever be able to grow back ,is after we are gone.
You can see however,Cox Point in the foreground with Cox Beach to the right and Chesterman’s beach northwest of it.
The channel in the foreground is Maltby Slough . You can clearly see how narrow the peninsula is ! You can also see the highway running to Tofino on the left of the Channel.
In the background you can see Lone Cone on Meares Island.
