Natural landscapes: Tonquin Park Beach


This beach is in the quaint, picturesque town of Tofino, on the west coast of Vancouver Island in Canada’s westernmost province. As you can see, it’s a stunning locale and I managed to get there for some pretty decent daybreak skies. (Thank you, God, for creating such magnificence!)
I used a hard-edge, two-stop graduated density filter to darken just the upper section of the picture, so the sky – which was much brighter than the ground – wouldn’t be overexposed when I made the picture. Nikon D90, tripod.
