Took me a second or two to realise it was in colour, not B&W...

Lots of people go to Tofino and Ucluelet to storm watch, there are even a few hotel/resort businesses along the shore line that advertise themselves as the best places to storm watch. Looks wild, if it wasn't so flipping cold it would be a good place to try a bit of surfing. For hikers the West-Coast trail covers a good portion of the west coast of Vancouver Island (where this photo is taken) and provides amazing vistas, secluded beaches and a great cardiac workout. Highly recommended. 8-)

So the winter surfers from Thurso would enjoy it.
