After getting my feet well and truly soaked photographing the sea at sunset, it seemed like a good idea to go and stand in near-freezing temperatures for a couple of hours, just up the coast at Porteau Cove Provincial Park.
With a strong wind blowing it was extremely cold, but the first clear night we've had in weeks provided an incredible view.
I was extremely pleased with how the Milky Way turned out, and the Big Dipper is clearly visible near the horizon just to the right of centre. Light domes are from the cities of Nanaimo (I think) on the left and Squamish on the right.
