In Their Element is an image of a place nearby that is not easily accessed. The beach depicted is privately owned and is one of many tiny gems on this lovely property. The place is Point No Point, a resort on Vancouver Island that is so named for its many points, none of which extend further than any other, hence the unusual name. The resort has a series of trails that lead through forest paths to several lookouts and beautiful beaches with crashing waves. It is an altogether magical place. My images of Point No Point can be seen here.
For this print I decided to reverse the image so that the sea was on the left. I also warmed up the colors of the rocks to compliment the blue of the sea. The rocks jut into prominence yet the angles and waves draw you into the picture to arrive at the man and his dog, who are not immediately noticed at first, but who lend a life and sense of scale to the landscape.
