Two Different Beaches

If I waited for clear skies to go out shooting, I would never photograph anything as the fog and clouds have been abundant lately.  So I thought I would use them to my advantage.  The clouds provide soft lighting for my first image shot at Mystic Beach.  And the fog was useful to camouflage the distracting elements in the upper right hand side of the image shot along the salt flats in Sooke, BC.

Entranced by rural and urban decay. I am drawn to these forlorn sites because they emote conflicting sentiments of beauty and disintegration.

  1. Looking at these images I from south of the border I can understand why they it has the name Mystic Beach. I have been staring at these images and I am mystified by the blue rocks/ gravel. I think the timing of this image is just perfect because I can see the shape of the trees behind the fog but they don’t provide too much of a distraction. I think they may even add to the image :-). Fantastic job. Does the sand on most of the beaches you have been to in British Columbia look like the sand in this image?

    • Actually, the blue rocks/gravel in the second image is actually a bed of mussels that was exposed at low tide. The beaches around the southwestern tip of Vancouver Island are all quite different. Some have smooth fine grained sand, others are full of mussels, many are very rocky. I will be posting more images this week from our little hike at Mystic Beach.
