Anniversary at Point No Point

Point No Point, Vancouver Island BC Canada

My Dad and his 3rd wife (he's such an optimist!) spent their 2nd anniversary at Point No Point, a secluded getaway on the west coast of beautiful Vancouver Island, BC Canada.


One of the staff took this photo while they were enjoying a stroll on the beach. I think it's a great photo for a number of reasons.

It's framed by the rocky bluff on one side and the lush greenery on the other, while the blue ocean just seems to go on forever and the wooden steps in the foreground seem to beckon the viewer to step right into the photo.

I also like the way you can see the story behind the picture.

The couple were walking along the gravel path when they came upon the steps leading down to the beach. As it was a warm afternoon, they decided to leave their sweaters at the top of the step while they ventured down to the beach.

Holding hands, they explore the isolated beach, enjoying the tranquility of this special moment.

In fact, I liked this photo so much that I incorporated it into the design of a new website I'm developing...www.discover-vancouver-island.com

My Dad didn't mind me thrusting him into the spotlight like that, so I'm sure he won't mind that I'm submitting the photo to your contest!

And Don't Forget To Be Sun Smart

You cannot feel or see UV (Ultraviolet radiation). We can see the sun's light and we can feel the sun's warmth (the infrared radiation). Our senses don't pick up on UV radiation and this is why it is so damaging.

Right across Australia this UV radiation varies, it being determined by the time of day, time of year, the weather including cloud cover, how close to the equator the position is and other considerable scientific factors.
