Winter Afternoon – Gowlland Point, Pender Island

gowlland-point-2016_1421-bwI haven’t had many opportunities to blog lately, which means Island  Home Blog has been quiet as of late. I finally had a chance to look at my pictures from a few weeks ago when it was stormy and blustery on the coast.

  1. Wonderfully dramatic in black and white! That driftwood is huge, there must be some big waves bringing it in.

      The waves were wild that day. The slope of the beach mixed with the wave action meant at times it was like a vertical wall of water 5 ft. high before the wave crashed. I have some pictures where you can see small bits of wood just suspended in the water before it crashed. It was quite amazing.
