The last few days Tofino has been getting snow. We do get it yearly but not that often. I miss the snow to be honest. I grew up with plenty of snow and always did so many wonderful things! My favorite was winter camping. Tracking animals was much easier in the snow!
Ernie and Ethel were perched on top of their Strawberry island perch. They are staying close to each other these days as its mating season. Wherever Ethel goes Ernie is always close behind.
I shot this on March 15th,2008. I shot it from the highest spot one can get in Tofino………up on the water tower.
It had snowed during the night & I went up there early to see if anything was going to happen? I’m looking eastward down Browning Pass. The Daredevil & Delilah live on a island down there in the centre.
Many locals live on Islands or Floathouses. This fellow was coming from one of the Floathouses at Strawberry Island. Some even paddle their kayaks to & fro!
In the morning I rode down to shoot the sunrise. These are the Strawberry Island float-houses. I am looking north.
Later In the afternoon,I went out in my boat and tried to shoot from the same area.
Same subject,but look how the light has made each shot so different!
The morning shot is cooler in temp. Whereas the afternoon’s shot, is much warmer!
