It made the exposure tricky. The tide had gone out enough that I was able to wade out to Frank Island and shoot from a higher perspective.I wanted to be able to see those pink snow covered mountains in behind.
When the wind/ocean waves are up,there are good wave explosions off of this point!
You can see Long Beach Lodge Resort in the background. You can also see two people walking on Cox Bay beach.
The Lodge was alittle over 2 klicks from me.
Waves are constantly hitting this point and the explosions can be very large!
You can also see “Long Beach Lodge Resort” in the background.
The NW wind that started blowing today helped to increase the wave size!
I didn’t get out in the boat tonight.The wind was howling all day!
I decided to go out to Chesterman’s to see what was happening.
These two guys were snorkiling out by Frank Island. I just lined them up with Long Beach Lodge in the background.
Only a few shots tonight. Not much I’m afraid.
Tomorrow looks better.
Many people come up here and just walk around our beautiful beaches!
These two were wading through this lagoonal like pond on Chestermans. I waited for a wave to crash onto Sunset Point in the background. You can also see Long Beach Lodge Resort in the background.
I didn’t go out tonight in my boat. There were too many clouds. However,it did get nice a hour or so before sunset. The sun came out of a large cloud and it got sunny gold all over.
I did see it was going to happen and had enough time to ride out to Chesterman’s Beach.
The moon did come up in the east,but there was too many clouds blocking it near the horizon. It came out from the clouds well up into the sky.
I got a few shots tonight,but nothing remarkable.
The moon came out over Cox Bay. You can see Long Beach Lodge Resort in the background,as well as a photographer in the foreground.
He went in front of the Long Beach Lodge during sunset.
There was a couple sitting down on the bench up on Sunset Point in behind him.
The Kite Surfer was crossing in front of me and I was able to get Long Beach Lodge in the background as well.
You can see a few people up on Sunset Point watching him.
I caught her with Sunset Point/ Long Beach Lodge Resort in behind her.
More and more people are using these “Beach Cruising “bikes.
I remember bikes like this when I was a kid. The new ones are half the weight and easier to ride!
The waves were crashing onto this point in Cox Bay and I decided to put myself in a spot where I could capture it for my Foreground.
I saw a few rather large wave explosions from not only this point(Sunset Point),but also Cox Point.
You can see Long Beach Lodge in the background.
Because of my location up on a high spot on Frank Island,I couldn’t move around much. So,I basically had to wait for the Kite surfers to cross my composed scene.
I not only waited for them to cross but was hoping that a wave would crash onto Sunset Points rocks at the right moment……and it did in this shot and a few others.
I shot this guy right in front of the Long Beach Lodge when a wave crashed onto Sunset Point rocks.
I was getting a good angle with the subject matter ! The lodge.
I had to place myself in just the right spot,but it worked! The mountains all had fresh snow on them and this was probably going to be the last time to shoot them with snow behind them.
These geese were passing through on their way to their summer feeding grounds up north. I waited for them to be over top of the Long Beach Lodge.
The light was poor,but you take what you can get!
