Natural landscapes: those moments of dusk


The west coast of Vancouver Island is a sublime mix of glorious beaches, rainforest, whales, eagles, starfish and so much more. This scene, on Mackenzie Beach, was just a five-minute walk from the cottage we rented for a week. I spent a half-hour capturing various versions of this scene. As the darkness gathered, I was making 30-second exposures to gather all the light. That’s why the water looks so silky.
