Chesterman beach is a popular landscape photography spot in Pacific Rim National Park Reserve near Tofino, BC. It’s not only popular for landscape photography, it’s one of the best surfing beaches in all of Canada! When the tide is out, you can walk forever on the sand. You can even reach the tiny islands! It’s an amazing place. When the sun sets over the expanse of wet sand, it’s absolute magic! I set up my tripod this night in December, just as the clouds and mist roll in. I love the way evenings like this feel, so I never pack up and leave before the end of blue hour. Patience is key in the practice of landscape photography, as is making peace when nothing particularly special happens. Like this evening. The light was ok, but this turned out to be one of my favourite landscape photographs! I think it really captures the personality of this beach. It’s authentic and honest, and not always a show-off.
