Tofino is always one of my favourite places to go to get away. No matter what time of year you go, there’s always something interesting to do… or you can just relax in nature and escape the hectic pace of everyday life. This trip I went in search of gray whales, with Jamie’s Whaling Station, onboard the Chinook Princess.
Botanical Beach is located on the south-west edge of Vancouver Island, just past Port Renfrew, BC, and it is one of my favourite local spots to visit for photography.
Quite some time ago I first met Henrietta, a chicken in search of her long lost uncle, Larry-Lays-Two-Eggs. I told the story of our meeting over at the Oopoomoo blog, and it can be found here. While Henrietta has grown quite comfortable on Vancouver Island, she has not given up her quest to find her long lost uncle. Recently, she searched high and low at Gordon’s Beach and even tried to recruit a passer-by to help, but in the end she knew it was up to her alone to find him.
This year I want to take more photos both locally and when I am away from home. I started off the year with a trip to the Tofino area, where I had the chance to do a good amount of shooting and appreciating that beautiful area. January is frequently stormy and this year was no different.
