Beach grass dots the landscape of Long Beach along Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, between Tofino and Ucluelet. It’s amazing to see these tufts of grass growing through the sand. Beach grass apparently thrives under conditions of shifting sands and high winds. The largest benefit, however, is to the coast as it helps stabilize and prevent coastal erosion.
In this image, one of the fascinating draws for me is that the grass itself has helped form sand dunes on the lee side. Also, light and contrast play well in this image.
