sea monsters

This beach at the extreme south-east tip of Pender Island faces Boundary Pass, an aptly named strait that runs along the border between Canada and the United States. It is the only place on the island that I’ve seen massive rock formations like these in the water.

Last year I took a picture at this beach from a different perspective. Interestingly, on my latest visit I noticed that some of the smaller boulders had shifted and one seemed to have sunk out of sight altogether. Nothing stays the same on these shores.

        The slight difference in focus sets of the forground more clearly and gives the sense of space and distance. I like it this way. You could go either way and make different moods.

    Lovely photo, our sands are constantly shifting. The Great Lakes are up and my favorite little beach for launching our smaller kayaks is now a break wall where fishermen cast, it was scoured away by gales this year.

    You’ve used light perfectly in this moody image. I’m practicing drawing rocks in colored pencil and water. Not selling, just practicing. Can’t say why rocks enchant me so much, they just do. Your image is a strong study for me. I lived on the North Olympic Peninsula in Washington for many years. Your images remind me of the scenes and feelings on the Pacific Northwest coast.
