My favourite days on the west coast are the dark stormy days of winter. In this photo, an ancient stand of old-growth trees clings to a rugged rocky island. I took this photograph from about 100 meters up in the air out over the pacific ocean off the west coast of Vancouver Island in BC Canada. In January when this photo was taken the colours of the ocean are spectacular. During the winter months, the water is clear and the different shades of blue and green are vibrant on an overcast day.

The power of the ocean during the winter months is a truly humbling force to witness. Giant waves pound the rocky shoreline and relentless wind whistles through the ancient trees.

I often capture photos like these during breaks in the rain because its almost constantly raining during the winter months.

Welcome to my shop! My name is Marty Mellway, I'm a wildlife, landscape and lifestyle photographer based on the west coast of Vancouver Island, Canada. All of my products are printed on very high-quality material, most of what you will find on the internet, Etsy included, is very low quality. I know everyone gives that same guarantee of quality but I am really proud of the photography that I have captured and I want to be sure that it looks amazing on your wall and lasts for decades.
