Tofino Mudflats, Vancouver Island, BC
The Story of "Spilled Paint"
I drove toward Tofino with managed expectations... I had heard it was beautiful, but I wondered if its reputation came from the fact that Canadians simply don't have a lot of white sand beaches; a feature which Tofino can boast in numbers. I figured it would be more of a surf town with beaches that were sought after, but didn't expect my camera would be getting much action...
I was very, very wrong.
Tofino is probably the most beautiful place on all of Vancouver Island. The Clayoquot Sounds provide striking coastal landscapes and on a rare sunny day, the entire city and surrounding area is simply bursting with energy.
I captured this last photo on our way out of town, waking up early for sunrise and a farewell to a place that had captured some piece of my heart. From the looks of the sunrise, the feeling was mutual.
