life on the edge

November 27, 2016

Along the magnificent outer west coast of Vancouver Island lies Ucluelet. The word Ucluelet (pronounced you-KLEW-let) is a local First Nations word meaning "people with a safe place to land".

And at the tip of the peninsula, you can walk along the Wild Pacific Trail. You will  journey along the edge of the open Pacific Ocean which looks over Barkley Sound and the archipelago of the Broken Group Islands. There is unbounded energy in the waves that crash against the rugged rocks.

This image shows the rocky bluffs and a surge channel near the Amphitrite Lighthouse. The motion of the waves and various shades of blue within the sky and the ocean captured Vince's attention for this particular image.

PS “Life on the edge” is Ucluelet's motto.
