This amazing coastal and mountain scenery seen from South Beach just after sunset in the Pacific Rim National Park. This is part of the Long Beach Unit of the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve on the West Coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia.
In this moment that has been captured, just after the sun has set on another day, the sky has that hazy orange / pink tinge to it as the sun burns off another day of rays. The water also looks darker without the sunlight and the rocks in the foreground and the trees in the background are starting to cast longer shadows that will soon blend with the night.
The South Beach is part of a trail that is about 1.5 kilometres and the trail leads here to this beach. It is a fun hike through forest and the view when you reach the end of the trail, as you can see, is well worth it. Due to the way the rocks are located in the water, South Beach is known for strong waves crashing against them.
This part of Vancouver Island, in the Pacific Rim National Park, is known for being so beautiful and breathtaking, and this photo shows that perfectly. It is located right at the edge of the Pacific Ocean, which stretches as far as the eye can see. It makes you feel small as you gaze upon this mountain coastal scene and reminds you that there is an entire world out there that is beautiful, magical, and just waiting to be explored.
