Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

The Strait of Juan de Fuca separates Canada (British Columbia) from the United States (Washington) and is the shipping channel from the open Pacific Ocean to the ports of Seattle, Vancouver, Victoria and others.
One of my favourite places for an evening walk is along the cliffs at the south end of Victoria, Vancouver Island. On this calm spring evening, clouds cap the Olympic Mountains in Washington, and a freighter heads for one of the port cities.

    beautifully captured – looks a wonderful clifftop viewpoint too!


  • Hi Maggie, thanks for your kind comment, and yes, that walk along the cliffs gives me a lot of nice shots. You can be up in the air or down on the beach, the POV changes!

    Happy days! , George
