About this item
Vancouver Island has many faces. It is a place with much to see, from the massive trees in the old-growth forest of the Carmanah Valley and the orcas that frequent the surrounding waters to the rich histories of the First Nations and the early settlers. Attractions such as The Butchart Gardens, a horticultural wonder just north of Victoria, and the miles of sandy beach in Pacific Rim National Park are world renowned, drawing thousands of visitors to Vancouver Island each year. From vibrant urban culture to rugged wilderness, this region has it all, and celebrated photographer Chris Cheadle has captured it beautifully.
