The waves break constantly on the rocky shoreline of the west coast of Vancouver Island near Ucluelet. The Wild Pacific Trail provides some terrific views of the coastline and lovely evening lighting as the sun slowly sets.
This painting of the wild Pacific shows a 5 metre swell at near high tide crashing into the rocky shoreline northwest of Ucluelet. This is exactly what I had envisioned from the first time I started painting scenes of the ocean on the west coast of Vancouver Island.
Near the southeast end of the Wild Pacific Trail in Ucluelet are a number a viewpoints for hikers. This viewpoint afforded me a good place to view the setting sunlight filtered through the firs beside the trail
