Long Beach Shadows
I made this images of logs sticking out of the sand this past March while on a trip with my parents to Long Beach, part of Pacific Rim National Park on Vancouver Island. Although this is an incredibly beautiful area, one of my favourite places to photograph, I always try to find something a little different even when shooting in harsh mid day light, I thought that the shadows looked kind of interesting creating strong lines in the photograph. Recent rains created a nice dimpled pattern in the sand which I thought added to the image. I made the photograph with my Tachihara 4 x 5 view camera, a 120mm lens and Tri-X film.
