Natural landscapes: new day’s light
SUNRISE AT CHESTERMAN BEACH, TOFINO, BRITISH COLUMBIA
This tiny town, on the west coast of Vancouver Island, is home to surfers, eco-tour companies and glorious beaches like this. Using a graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky is key to making this photo work; it increases drama and forces your eyes down into the rest of the amazing scene. Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter.
