pearly hues

I rarely get down to this beach, as it is accessible only at low tide, and most often that does not coincide with the times I am out photographing. On this particular morning, however, I got lucky with the tide and a beautiful soft light, which made everything look like it had been painted with the hues from inside an oyster shell.

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.
