As the gulls circled overhead on the constant lookout for their next meal, a gentle cold wind made the grasses dance and the waves lap against the shore. Vancouver Island is an amazing place, one that reveals natural treasures from every vantage. Some of the most beautiful scenes are those where you look outward towards the ocean. These living picture frames are dynamic in nature and are constantly changing, showing something new and beautiful each and every time.
This has to be one of my favorite photographs from this year so far. It’s got it all; snow-capped mountains; huge ships in the distance, and a dingy bouncing over the waves as the pilot makes his mysterious journey across the vast waters. The mountains we see here are part of the Olympic Mountain Range in Washington State in the United States. At night when it’s clear you can sometimes see a few twinkling lights from communities over on that side of the proverbial pond. I am not quite sure what the navigation aid we see here is officially called, but if you look closely you can see a bevy of what I believe to be cormorants standing sentry. So much to take in and see in one frame, a Vancouver Island moment forever frozen in time.
