Tofino Inlet, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Taken from the shore at the delightful Tofino Botanical Gardens.
Small and quirky, the Tofino Botanical Gardens are a delightful place to visit – we had them almost to ourselves even in August. When we were paying to get in we were told our ‘ticket’ was good for three days. ‘But you haven’t given us a ticket’, I said. ‘We trust you,’ was the charmingly laid back reply. The cafe area is lovely too, with sofas you can sink into and lots of interesting books on the shelf for you to read.

Canon EOS 5Dii and 24-105mm L lens
