Long Beach, Tofino, Vancouver Island

The story behind the image

Here’s a third image of the Long Beach Unit of the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve near Tofino on Vancouver Island. Its southern part is called Wickaninnish Beach. The middle section is simply called Long Beach, and my photo shows a view towards Schooners Beach. The small airport, Tofino Long Beach (YAZ), is situated to the right, behind the trees.

We visited the place during ebb and took a walk between the rocks that emerged from the sand. It’s an untouched place that probably has been like this for a very long time.

I like the dominance of blue and green in this picture, along with the light brown of the sand. The wide angle shows the beauty and remoteness of the location.
