The Canadian Landscape Contest – Dave Terpening
This was taken at Chesterman Beach, just south of Tofino on the west coast of Vancouver Island. My wife and I took a trip to watch the January storms. We were expecting gale force winds and torrential rains, which we eventually got, but as a bonus, we also got an hour of clear sky on the first day…and this sunrise. For me, this image captures the wildness of the west coast of the island, even during the quiet of a winter sunrise. Nikon d80, 18-200mm, Singh-Ray 2 stop soft grad filter.
