Portrait photography and all my artistic pursuits have been on hold for the last little bit as we took a quick trip to Pender Island, BC, Canada. Enroute we popped into Victoria for the day then caught the last ferry of the evening to Pender. The next day we managed to catch the last of the summer sun and spent a wonderful afternoon on Niagara beach. It is a fantastic sandy beach, tucked away down a steep hill. I had no idea how steep a hill it was until I carried our 2 year old up it, that was quite the workout. We popped down to South Pender Island before the sun set and visited the beach at Craddock Drive. I managed to capture some fabulous seaside images of summer that day, which was lucky as the next day was one of mist and fog and rain.
