The west coast of Vancouver Island has become a favorite destination for winter storm watchers. We were fortunate to celebrate the new year at MacKenzie Beach last year with close friends, and enjoyed some truly spectacular storms as well as plenty of fine beach-combing weather.

I shot this panorama on January 2nd about an hour after sunrise. It's one of my favorites of 2008, not only because of the beautiful light and reflections off the sand, but because the unsettled sky and lingering waves remind me of the previous night's storm, and of a much bigger storm to come the following day.

This is one of a series of four panoramas I shot that morning. The others can be viewed here.
