The waters around La Palma island are pretty rough. Not a location for beach swimming. Behind where I took this shot was a swimming pool hewn from the natural rocks and filled by the sea, called La Fajana. I took this shot, looking out to sea, from a platform about 4m about the surf. The occasional wave still managed to lap my feet the swell was that rough.
Dawn on a stretch of beach a few miles south of Tofino on the west coast of Vancouver Island, Canada. No another person around for miles, just the gentle lapping of the Pacific ocean against the shore. Mist was rising from the land, creating a very other-worldly effect.
Holiday season was well over and the temperature was only a just in double digits. Still, one of my favourite beaches in Canada.
