In the summer this is a favourite swimming place of mine, and others too including my dog, Fynn!! Not sure if it is my imagination but it seems the ocean warms up as the tide rises over the rocks that have been baking in the sun all day. In any event it is very enjoyable!
One of my favourite small piece that I have done. The colour of the ocean and the reflection of the rocks and tree trunks really stand out for me!! High Tide fell off the brush so easily.
The colours on the West Coast are amazingly beautiful!! The vast coastline of British Columbia has such big skies and such variety and dimension with all the thousands of little islets.
In the summer months the West Coast Sea Stacks bask in the sun and relax and reflect their shapes in the calmer waters! They are true survivors of the exciting winter storms that find their way in from the Pacific Ocean and I think the Sea Stacks enjoy the gentler summer weather.
I set up on the beach with other plein air enthusiasts. The time was mid June and the sky was overcast but the air temperature was lovely with a light breeze coming off the ocean!! Facing north west across the harbour, a temporary home to many freighters, towards West Vancouver, including Point Atkinson.
In Port Renfrew at a beach called Botanical Beach there is a little island that caught my attention!
Out on the west coast yet again! The sky at sunset was just amazing with the light hitting the lower edges of the clouds!
Kids, fresh snow and winter fun on the hill!
