It really pulls our view to the distant mountains but there is so much to enjoy in the foreground too. Although it is a very different environment, I immediately thought of Adams’ Mt. Williamson from Manzanar. It has that same powerful depth to it. I hope you don’t mind your image being compared to some “other” photographer. 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 11, 2020 • 8:21 am Wow, Steve, you’ve made my day. One of my favorites of Adams and he is a lifelong influence. Thank you so much. 😄 Reply ↓ Steve Gingold March 11, 2020 • 2:02 pm 🙂 Reply ↓ Tofino Photography March 7, 2020 • 11:24 pm you got Lone Cone and Cats Face in the shot Jane! I was there tonight myself shooting the sunset. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 8, 2020 • 9:16 am Thanks, Wayne! I’m so glad to know the names of those two mountains. I made many images of them from this spot. The unfortunate wildfires that year created some amazing effects. How lucky you are to live in this place. 😄 Reply ↓ Tofino Photography March 8, 2020 • 9:39 am Cats Face is the one on the left. They call it that because of a mica deposit on the west side that reflects the setting suns light like a cats eye. I do feel very lucky to of found this place! Each time I go out I find something new! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 8, 2020 • 3:48 pm That’s great info– thank you so much! Reply ↓ Adrian Lewis March 7, 2020 • 10:20 pm Striking picture, Jane, loads of depth and texture. 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 8, 2020 • 3:53 pm Happy you like this one, Adrian. Thank you. It was one of those inspiring mornings that make your photography mind go wild. You know the feeling. 🙂 Reply ↓ David March 7, 2020 • 11:06 am Nice B&W. So, where’s the large expanse of white sand, or the more exotic black sand? (LOL) 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 7, 2020 • 3:05 pm Thanks, David. There’s a big wide beach behind me in this…it’s gorgeous! 🙂 Reply ↓ bluebrightly March 6, 2020 • 2:57 pm Ripples, rocks, and mountains all relating easily. You know how to lead a viewer to see what you saw. Wonderful, Jane. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 6, 2020 • 4:22 pm Love your description, Lynn. Thank you very much. This is a special spot. Reply ↓ Jet Eliot March 6, 2020 • 9:59 am What a great job you did capturing the tranquility of this beach, Jane. I would love to visit Tofino some day. Thanks for taking me there today. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 6, 2020 • 4:21 pm Thanks, Jet. It’s quite a drive but well worth it. Happy you enjoyed this beach moment. 🙂 Reply ↓ Andrew Seal March 6, 2020 • 9:17 am Lovely catching up Jane. Chesterman Beach is truly one of the great beaches of the world. Wonderful shot.

Reply ↓ Yoshimiparis Photographie March 5, 2020 • 10:33 pm Hello Jane I am more and more in love with monochrome which accentuates the details wonderfully Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 6, 2020 • 9:05 am Thank you very much, Yoshimi. Monochrome helps me to see differently. Reply ↓ bayphotosbydonna March 5, 2020 • 7:24 pm Stunning, Jane! ❤ Your work inspires me! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 6, 2020 • 9:05 am Thank you so much, Donna. That’s so nice to read. Much appreciated. Reply ↓ Michael Scandling March 5, 2020 • 6:56 pm Love your monochromes. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 6, 2020 • 9:04 am Thanks very much, Michael. This one worked well in the conversion. Happy you like it. 🙂 Reply ↓ Karen March 5, 2020 • 4:16 pm Great perspective Jane, monochrome suits it very well. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 6, 2020 • 9:02 am Thanks, Karen. Certain landscapes work even better in monochrome. Glad you like this one. (although I think the color version is exciting, too.) 🙂 Reply ↓ Heyjude March 5, 2020 • 3:51 pm I have actually been on this beach. We stayed in a B&B nearby in 2010. A very different shot of it. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 6, 2020 • 9:01 am How nice, Jude! I’m so glad you’ve been. It’s a gorgeous area and apparently a surfers’ mecca Glad this brought back good memories. Thank you. 🙂 Reply ↓ Heyjude March 6, 2020 • 9:32 am It is indeed, the week after our stay there was a surfing championship. Reply ↓ YellowCable March 5, 2020 • 3:18 pm The picture is interesting and I think it is powerful. For some reason, those rocks and sand texture invoke certain phobia out for me. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 6, 2020 • 9:00 am Hi YC, That’s interesting. An image is effective when it evokes an emotional response. Yours was a powerful reaction. Thank you for sharing thoughts. Reply ↓ M.B. Henry March 5, 2020 • 2:34 pm Awesome picture! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 6, 2020 • 8:56 am Thanks very much, MB. This was a great morning! Reply ↓ Freddiemercuryonline March 5, 2020 • 1:10 pm 😍😍😍😍 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 6, 2020 • 8:55 am 🙂 🙂 Glad you enjoyed, Freddie. Thanks so much. Reply ↓ Freddiemercuryonline March 6, 2020 • 11:54 am You are so welcome ❤️ Reply ↓ paula graham March 5, 2020 • 12:11 pm Fascinating photo. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 6, 2020 • 8:55 am Thank you, Paula. The unfortunate wildfires that year added to the effect in the distance. I was enamored with these rocks. 🙂 Reply ↓ Detlef Gimbel March 5, 2020 • 11:54 am Jane, you just have an eye for the right moment👍👍👍 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 6, 2020 • 8:54 am Thank you, Detlef. This beach was full of beautiful surprises. Glad you enjoyed. 🙂 Reply ↓ andrewtpeterson March 5, 2020 • 10:13 am Stunning, that line of trees is magnetic. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 6, 2020 • 4:26 pm Thank you, Andrew. I loved that dividing line. Glad you enjoyed this one. Reply ↓ Eliza Waters March 5, 2020 • 9:51 am Wow, I totally got lost in this one… so beautiful. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 6, 2020 • 4:29 pm Hi Eliza, What a wonderful compliment! Thank you very much. This is a wonderful, nature-filled part of the world. Reply ↓ Alison and Don March 5, 2020 • 9:03 am Brilliant image Jane. Alison Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 5, 2020 • 9:08 am Thanks so much, Alison. What a fabulous place- have you been? Reply ↓ plaidcamper March 5, 2020 • 8:58 am Love the lines and textures – and I can hear the bald eagles on Frank Island singing! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 5, 2020 • 9:09 am Thanks very much, Adam! Is Tofino near you? Reply ↓ plaidcamper March 5, 2020 • 11:04 am Yup, it’s about a thirty minute drive up the coast. Lovely location, gets a bit overrun in the summer, but we stop by the Saturday market in season, visit with friends there, and grab a coffee at Tofino Sea Kayak. Tell no one, it has the best coffee in Tofino, and a beautiful view across to Meares Island and Opitsat. If you like to paddle a kayak, and need a guide, they’re a great bunch. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 5, 2020 • 1:38 pm Sounds marvelous! Lucky you. Thanks, Adam. 😄 Reply ↓ Poetpas March 5, 2020 • 8:31 am Cool pic😎 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie March 5, 2020 • 9:10 am Thank you, Poetpas. It was a great morning there. 🙂 Reply ↓ Love to hear what you think...
