Photographer's Note

Well I finally got out on the this little island off the shore in West Vancouver's Whytecliff Park. It can only be reached at low tide, and I found some pretty interesting views from it. First of all, I found out that it's called Wyte Islet, so it's too small to be an actual island, but is an islet. It had been raining all day, but near the end of the day the clouds started to lift and the rain stopped, so I took a drive out the the park, on the chance that it could turn into an interesting sunset. The tide was way out, so I went out to the island, and I had it pretty much too myself. As with most of coastal BC, the shore is very steep rock, and because everything was very wet, the rocks were treacherous. To make it even more interesting, there are cliffs of about 10m height, which drop down to the water or shore rocks. I managed to scramble up and over the islet, and was rewarded with some great light after sunset, but I almost slipped and fell a few times. By the time I got off Whyte Island, I was almost shaking from the tension of careful clinging to those slippery rocks. Now I can't wait to go back!
