Winter storms along the edge

Winter on the west coast of Vancouver Island looks a bit different from the rest of the country. While most of Canada sees lots (and lots, and lots) of snow and cold, we only occasionally see snow. And our temperatures rarely drop below zero for long.

What we do see is our fair share of high winds. With those winds come large waves.

Spending as much time along the edge of our island as I do, I look forward to winter storms with high winds. Around Victoria that can result in some picturesque scenes. Further up the west coast, winter waves and scenery becomes spectacular.

Here are a few storm images from the west coast and around Victoria. Enjoy each new wave, as much as I do!

NB: West coast storm images captured with the Fujifilm GFX 50S, fronted by the GF250mm f/4 lens. Victoria images captured with the Fujifilm XF10 and X-Pro3. A note about the GF250 lens: this is one amazing lens. Robust build and fantastic image quality. If you need this focal length for your GFX body, you won’t be disappointed.

  1. Great photographs capturing the beauty and power of the ocean. I looked at these images and could hear the roar and felt the sea spray.
