Colors in the fog

They always told me that Tofino was one of the must see of British Columbia. A beautiful village on the Canadian Pacific coast, with great beaches, a hot summer and a lot of fun!. So we went there in July, one of the two months of summer that we have here in the North West! We left Vancouver with a warm sun and got to Tofino to find the THICKEST FOG EVER! Well, "thick fog+beach" really makes an unreal combination. Especially when suddenly some strong pink, red and blue come out of the grey and run toward you! :D

No post processing for this image, as usual. :)

This is beautiful. I love the colours. The mood with the fog is wonderful! Such a happy image. Very well captured. And the best is ... no processing - the way I like it as well :)

@✿ Anina ✿: You're right Anina, it's a happy image. In the beginning I was disappointed, but then... (I am not very keen at processing, but usually I like the images as they come from the camera :) Glad to hear that you do the same!)

It's a beautiful view disappearing down the beach in the morning fog. I love this shot - and the joy of the little girl and the dog, enjoying the beach and totally ignoring the fog.

@kiwisa: Hi Kiwisa! Thanks a lot. :) For them it's like a sunny day. I love this.

nice mood with the fog descending on the beach, lovely reflection of the girl and dog playing together.

This is a terrific frame. I love Tofino and such tough luck for you to catch the fog. But what a fabulous ambiance to the frame. My family live in Vancouver, Sidney BC and Nanoose Bay, and we always do road trips all over BC and Alberta on my month long vacations back home. My last visit to Tofino was in September 2008, a wondeful place... with or without the fog! ha ha

@SOUL AFLAME: Hi Soul! Great to know that you have strong ties to these places! Tofino is very special :) We also took a seaplane and had a look from above. Amazing! After that I even looked into taking a seaplane driving licence! AH AH The drive across Vancouver Island is also really enjoyable.

A wonderful experience to be there. A lovely capture of the playfulness and colors of a child with her dog.

I took my family to Tofino last year - it is that farthest my sons have ever been from home. They loved it! We never saw any fog. It is still very pretty.
