I grew up on the eastern(ish) side of Canada, a long, long way from any ocean, but on the shore of a beautiful little lake. While the ocean was far away, there were lakes everywhere!

It wasn’t until my 31st year that  I found myself living with the ocean at my doorstep. That ocean was a very long way from home. In fact, it was all the way around the world. Despite 30 perfectly happy years without the ocean in sight, I became firmly coastal. While I accept that I’m not likely to ever own that dream beach house in this very developed world, I’m feeling pretty committed to at least living nearby. As a result, many of my favourite images are by the coast. Throw in a dramatic sky and I’m all set.

This particular piece of coast is on the west coast of Canada, in Vancouver.

  1. Love the balance between monochrome and colour!

  2. Once again, like the goose shot, I really like the selective composition and shallow dof of this image. While it’s nice to have sunny weather 99 percent of the time here in Arizona, I am still trying to adjust to living without the ocean… and yikes, the rain… not sure if I will ever. I’m an ocean girl at heart.

  3. Mike I want to let you know that I’ve nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. To accept the award go to and complete the process.

  4. Beautiful image, Mike – vibrant colours, and I love the way it fades off into a greyer and more blurred distance. Adrian

  5. Oh this is gorgeous. Great perspective!
