Natural landscapes: new day’s light

SUNRISE AT CHESTERMAN BEACH, TOFINO, BRITISH COLUMBIA

This tiny town, on the west coast of Vancouver Island, is home to surfers, eco-tour companies and glorious beaches like this. Using a graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky is key to making this photo work; it increases drama and forces your eyes down into the rest of the amazing scene. Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter.

      • We are going first up the sunshine coast, over to Campbell river, then Tofino, back to Whistler and then home. Any suggestions that local would recommend for paddling kayaks and taking photos? Thanks, Jim

      • I don’t know about kayaking, Jim, but I do know that kayaking companies operate out of Tofino. And virtually any beach in Tofino and nearby Pacific Rim National Park is awesome for photography. 🙂
