Vancouver Island Gallery

Before we started plotting this trip, I was unaware of the existence of Vancouver Island. So in case you’re in the same boat: it’s a Pacific island off the west coast of Canada (accessible by ferry, or if you’re feeling rich, by seaplane), it’s about the same size as the Netherlands or Taiwan and it is covered in trees, the best bits of which are magnificently mossy old-growth rainforests. It’s a favourite Canadian summer holiday and surfing destination (yes, they do have both summer and surfers in Canada). We spent 10 days on Vancouver Island. Judging by our overall island photo collection, we may have spent too much time stalking banana slugs and mushrooms, but I promise I showed restraint and included some pictures of trees, beaches and birds too. Happy gallery viewing!

    Great photos! Banana slugs look almost tasty! Also accessible as a not so expensive seaplane trip from Seattle for anyone who is ever up there.

    Great bird pics. Reminds me of your Japan efforts. And some nice composition on the scenery. Don’t think you’ve quite cracked invertebrates yet.

    Something about lighthouses – cool photos thanks San-Marie / Saul

    I haven’t tried eating a banana slug (yet) but I’m told they’re not very tasty. Apparently most predators only try them once.
    Glad the lighthouses and birds found favour and yes, I really should put those Japan bird pictures on here sometime – I think they may be the best bird pics Saul has taken so far.
