Natural landscapes: the somber low tide


During our recent trip to Canada’s west coast, it seemed like the tide was always low when I visited the ocean. This was one instance when that was good, since it exposed this fascinating rock formation. The overcast conditions played into my hand, since it eliminated distracting shadows and let you fully feel the moody atmosphere.
