The RCMP have several boats here in Tofino. This type of boat is called a RIB,Ridged Inflatable Boat.The boat I use is also a RIB,just much smaller!
This boat is called the “Eagle”.It’s the boat used to by the RCMP for two native villages,Ahousaht & Opitsat.
It was coming to the dock in Tofino at sunset.
This boat was named after Cst. Jean Minguy. He served duty here in Tofino. He drowned in Lake Okanagan unfortunately and the Tofino crew decided to name this boat after him.
The Nadon pulled into Tofino this afternoon.I wished the light was better,but you get what you get?
This is one of their marine cruisers they use to get about on the water.
This thing can haul ass! I’ve seen the wake this boat leaves!
Not sure how long she is in town for?
They came back into the harbour from the north. I’m guessing on this one ,but I can almost guarantee that they were at Ahoushat.
A Native village north of Tofino.
Must of been important to be heading out of harbour at sunset!
A sliver of light came through at sunset and lite up only a small portion of the harbour.
You can see the Coast Guard Vessel “Cape Ann” at her berth and the RCMP Patrol boat as well.
My camera was in my camera case and when I saw these guys coming into the harbour,I got it out quickly. The afterglow was great tonight and I hung around longer than normal waiting for subjects to come by. A fishing boat would of been great,but nobody showed up.
I caught the Nadon heading out of Tofino at sunset. This boat looks like it can move!
The Nadon was on her way out of Tofino Harbour.
She’s on constant patrol around the Island. She came along at a perfect time. I always try to constantly be placing myself into a position where “something” might happen.
Photography is about three basic parameters.
Being at the right spot
at the right time
and with the right equipment ! Simple as that.
You don’t have to be a big time professional to get excellent shots ! All you have to do is to carry your camera (preferably a good one) with you at all times !
Be mindful of your environment & have your camera with you at all times.
You’ll get an excellent shot sooner or later.
