Photographer's Note

Small, compact and nestled between ocean and rainforest in the northern Vancouver Island wilderness, Telegraph Cove (population around 20) seems to have jumped through time.
The boardwalked resort with its preserved historic buildings recalls a rustic past in which the cove harboured a lumber mill and salmon saltery.
Today it is a starting point for eco-tourism, mainly whale and Grizzly watching.
It is situated aproximately 450km north of Victoria.
It is amazing how the scenery from busy south Vancouver Island up to Campell River, about 200km north of Victoria is pretty much populated and developed, once you pass the last town of Campell River you are all on yourself. The scenery changes quite abrupt at the northern edge of the town to forest, mountains and rivers. Only a few small settlements like Port Hardy or Port McNeill cling to the coast.
