Botanical Beach


Botanical Beach is by Port Renfrew, on Vancouver Island. There is a University of British Columbia research station there for many years, giving the beach its name. The geology is interesting and it results in many tidepools with interesting aquatic life for the researchers to study.

This picture is an unintended panorama, after returning home we found one picture was better because of the cliff on the right but another had the important view of the open ocean on the left. Merging the two pictures, made seconds apart, makes a better overall scene than the separate ones.
