The Chiboum is the fishing boat in the foreground. The Nadon is in the far background. The Nadon is a RCMP vessel and was just leaving the harbour. It looked like it may of been going up to Ahoushat way? A native village further up the coast.
The Chiboum may have been coming in with a load of Geoduck? I think(?) there is a opening on right now,but I’m guessing. I haven’t asked anybody if this is true or not?
At any rate,they were coming in,and the Nadon was heading out.
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.
