The rocky Pacific coastline glows a soft pink and yellow at sunset in this picture of stupendous coastal scenery that gives the viewer a sense of calm and tranquility. South Beach is part of the Pacific Rim National Park in the Long Beach Unit. This park is in the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve on the West Coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. It is a popular beach to visit and is known for its long stretches of both sandy and rocky beaches and amazing sea views.
Sunset can be the perfect time of day to take stunning picture of a rocky coastline with it's hard angles and edges but with water which seems to soften in the gentle light of sunset.
This beach is considered a good location during storms as well, as it is far enough away from the natural phenomenon to be safe, but still close enough to experience the awesome power of nature. A viewer can look out over the Pacific Ocean and have an unobstructed view of the storm sending waves crashing along the coastline. As it is part of Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, it is a protected area so people are asked to leave it exactly as they found it and not disturb the unique ecosystem and its wildlife.
