THE “HARVEST KING” COMING BACK IN

20150218-IMG_0483It was suppose to be a poor day today for weather but turned out much better than expected………or so I thought?
I headed out & decided to hang around near Tofino. I went down to Tsapee Narrows. No sooner had I gotten there when I noticed a large cloud system moving in from the west! I knew instantly that the light was going to go bye bye! It happens sometimes. I head out & the light gets snuffed!
I took a few shots of the Daredevil & Delilah. I saw that big shadow creeping eastward towards me & knew I didn’t have much time! I took what I could & once that shadow reached me at Tsapee, I headed back to town.
I had taken my gas can along to get refilled. I was pulling into the local marina when I noticed a Blue Heron close by. I shut the engine off & used the parked boats as cover to sneak up. It worked! As long as I didn’t move when it saw me,I was ok. When the Heron sees no movement,it figures I’m no threat & continues searching for food.
The light was poor when I took those shots. You can see how the colours don’t stand out.
Once filled up,I came back in. Short shoot today! Spent more time putting the boat/gear & taking it back out than shooting.
It happens. Always great to get out!

THE “HARVEST KING”

20131024-IMG_975620131024-IMG_9765I got out much later than what I would of preferred! Had to work.
Having said that,I did get out & went up into Fortune Channel looking for bears. Tranquil was out of the question today because of me leaving so late! I also knew that finding a bear would be tough! It was high tide! When the tide is high,the bears cannot get at the rocks!Tiny Rock Crabs are hiding under them!
I haven’t been up in Fortune for awhile actually. I’ve been busy going down to Tranquil. Tomorrow,I’ll do Tranquil.
As expected……….no Bo Bo’s tonight! Headed back to Tofino. I stopped off at Tsapee to visit with the Daredevil & Delilah. Delilah was around but the Daredevil wasn’t! I haven’t seen him in awhile & am getting worried. It’s not like him? Maybe tomorrow?
Said goodnight to Delilah,she wasn’t in the mood to party!
Went over to Morpheus Island to visit with Moe & Maggie. Maggie was home,but Moe was absent!
I’m beginning to wonder if the boys were all out on the town! Maggie has always had a smile for me,unlike Delilah. She’s a bit distant!
Took some great shots of Maggie coming in with Meares island as a beautiful backdrop! Said goodnight to her & went on to visit with Romeo & Juliette.
I was very happy to see both Romeo & Juliette flying over to greet me!! Having Romeo greet me is always fantastic but having them both fly over to greet me is just pure magic!
Spent some quality sunset time with my buddy Romeo! He really is the KING of eagles. Nobody messes with Romeo!

I did get out later than normal & found no bears,but it’s always an adventure getting out in the wilds of Tofino folks!
