Photographer's Note

Scene from Chesterman Beach, near Tofino on Canada's Pacific coast. I was trying to show the mist or sea spray that is thrown up by the waves, which gives the seashore a different look than any other place. Using a long lens (300mm, and with a crop format camera the equivalent of 450mm) I got a really compressed perspective, and shooting into the light you could really see the sea spray quite well. I have also been striving to get my shots cleaner, more simple and uncluttered, which the long lens helps with because it narrows your vision. I was using my old D70 because I wanted to take advantage of the crop format, and I had different lens on my D200 which I was also carrying with me at the time. I don't know about anyone else, but I tend to keep all my old cameras as I like to use them in certain situations. The problem is that they seem to accumulate much faster in the digital age than they did in film days!
