Low tide at Grimmer Bay

Morning sun illuminates Grimmer Bay, which is named after Washington Grimmer, a Pender Island pioneer. He was the island’s first postmaster, bringing the mail by rowboat from a neighbouring island.


The trees on the tiny islet are looking very autumnal, probably as much due to the stress of a very dry summer as it is to a change of season. I have a vision of this scene shrouded in a light mist. When conditions are right, I’ll go back to see if the reality matches my imagination.

    Very beautiful with these colors and the light… and indeed although the second one is also really nice, the first has a great composition.
    I’ll expect the mist-photo within a few weeks? 😉
