It was a pleasant summer evening in White Rock; I spent it on the pier watching the sun set, and enjoying the festive atmosphere with lots of people out, some swimming, some crabbing, some just out for a stroll. Taking in the sounds and sights as I sauntered down the path on the way back, I noticed the tracks along the water catching the last light of the day.
The original 36×60″ Acrylic on Canvas painting has sold, but prints on canvas, wood, and paper are available here: https://thefeelingoftheplace.com/portfolio/sunset-on-the-tracks-at-white-rock/
In the brief change of colour in the light at sunset, and in the intertidal zone that straddles the border between land and sea, there is an otherworldly sense that inspires wonder and awe within me, that this same world I am so familiar with can seem so different in this time and place.
Camping with my son’s cub scout troop, I took a moment to step away from the din to take in the sunset looking toward the Sunshine Coast from Newcastle Island, which sits just a few hundred metres away from downtown Nanaimo, but feels so much more remote when you are there looking Northward on the stoney beach.
We took a walk along the beach soon after we woke up on our camping trip to French Beach, and but we diverted from the water into the nearby trees to when we noticed the rays of the sunrise catching the mist from the surf.
