I can Sea for Miles and Miles

I was in low tide heaven.  My parents came for their first visit to Vancouver Island.  This is out on the beach in Parksville.

That is a LOT of beach at low tide, Jen. You can barely see the sea!
Jen Schilling: It was definitely a special low tide. I was so excited to experience it. This does happen often in the summer time up here. You just have to make it at the right time of the day to enjoy it and so we did. smile

I do hope your parents enjoyed themselves, Jen. I like the snake of the small water channel across the beach. Sand looks firm but I expect that water is cold when it come sin.
Jen Schilling: I really loved the small water channel as well. I believe that was warm water, and we did not figure out exactly why. But yes the ocean there is very cold. The ripples are from the wind and windy it was! smile
Looks a long walk for a paddle Jen grin
Jen Schilling: Bill I never looked at it that way... laughs.
Just beach as far as the eye can see Jen, apart from that little stream. Very nice.
Jen Schilling: And what amazing time it was! smile

Gorgeous! I love the expansiveness of this shot and that there were so few people there.
Jen Schilling: I'll remember that for time to come! smile
the wrinkle in the sand is so nice
Jen Schilling: Chantal - that's exactly what I loved about the shot too!
What a perspective. Very nicely framed Jen!
Jen Schilling: Thanks Richard.
I would take one look..then get back in the car Jen..that's the way it is these days.A great shot showing the expanse.
Jen Schilling: No way, low tide like this doesn't happen often, but it all depends how far you walk out. The car wouldn't be that close to get back into! hehe.

Vertical framing for horizontal extent! Dare! But successful.
Jen Schilling: Ah Frabrice - this was only one of many images. I'll try posting a few more of my favorites. Personally I know it's the 10mm lens that makes the photo look so large and amazing to my eyes at least. smile

Wow! That sand goes on for ever!
Jen Schilling: Ellie - And it was so worth being able to see it! smile
Really like all the different details in this....sand, clouds, people, mountains. Wondering how it would look in B&W too.
Jen Schilling: LEt me see if I can't work on that one Edward!
