Landscape photography is not my forte.
But given the coastal views in Ucluelet, British Columbia, I cannot but try.
Located on the westerly side of Vancouver Island (which on the west most side of British Columbia’s mainland), Ucluelet is this the rugged cousin of the more famous Tofino.
It is well known for it’s black volcanic rock beaches and dramatic coast lines. The Wild Pacific Trail starts at Amphitrite Lighthouse and loops up and along the Pacific Rim, with walking trails traversing cliffs and rain forest pathways.
Closer to Tofino, the cliffs give way to stretches of black-grey sand beaches. Pounding waves make this a destination spot for avid surfers …
… and bicyclists,
… joggers and plain ole, laid back beach walkers – like me.
