I saw this young woman riding against the wind and admired her for her determination! I waited for the Kite surfer to catch up to her in the background.
I saw these guys over by Frank Island and waited for them to ride by. They decided to ride up the western side of Chestermans and I just waited for them to ride in front of the Lighthouse and the Wick.
The small boy behind his mom was the only one who spotted me shooting them and kept a eye on me as they went down the beach!
A future photographer possibly??
I shot this fellow near sunset on Chesterman’s Beach. You can see the Wickaninnish Inn in the background and Cats Face Mountain range in behind that.
I saw these bicyclists coming down the beach and waited for them to come into my scene. I always like to use the Lighthouse as background material.
I was lucky to get everyone lined up for a shot.
These two guys were out riding around on the beach with their dogs. While the Kite Surfer was doing his thing in the background!
I saw these people riding down the beach and waited for them to come in front of the Lighthouse. The Crows looked like they were digging for a meal.(probably blood worms)
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!
These two guys were out on their bikes and I waited for them to come into the scene.
After shooting these I decided to head back in to town. The light kept getting better and better. I didn’t plan it,but I decided on the way back into town to go out in the boat! The light was getting better and better. The clouds were clearing and I could have 1 1/2 hrs out shooting.However it was much later. I normally am out on the water at 7pm. It was 8pm tonight.
Not only did I go out and get some great eagle shots ,but I decided to head out to the Lighthouse for sunset. I’m glad I did! I got some good shots of the Lighthouse at sunset as well!
The light was terrible tonight. I had to scratch just to get these.
It looks like the kids are getting a free ride. The sunset was great tonight! It’s been raining steady now for many days. I looked at the Satellite/Radar site and saw that a clearing was coming from the south. I grabbed my camera and hung around the beach for the sunset.
The clouds went away and the sun came out. Everyone seemed to know that, and many people were out riding on the beach.
The water had a nice glow to it. It’s because the waves are atomizing the water. It makes it into spray. The setting suns light highlights it very nicely.
Many surfers use their bikes for getting around. Tofino has a great bike path linking the town and several beaches.
There were many people out on their bikes tonight! When the sun came out,so did everyone else.
This bicyclist was taking a break from peddling and letting the wind do all the work.
The back lighting of these two bikes works very well when the sun has thin cloud in front of it. If it was a clear sky,the sun would be too powerful and have blow outs in the white’s. Try to avoid or minimize that.
These two were riding along and I couldn’t resist. I always use the Lighthouse as wallpaper . If you can get something in the background (of interest) ,it’ll make the shot that much better.
