I was at Crescent Beach and Blackie Spit last week and saw that breathtaking display of artistry performed by the sandpipers.
It was a sight to behold. I wish I had had my camera, but your picture certainly captured it.
Every dip and swirl with the sun beaming through, at times a transparent oval, and again another shape, as they lifted off the water, I’ll never forget it.
So glad I was there to see it. Thanks for a beautiful picture.

I find it very hard to believe that the photo on the front page of the Dec. 7 issue of Peace Arch News depicts Blackie Spit in Crescent Beach, as stated – for the full width of the back of the picture are shown nearby high snow-covered mountains.
I would appreciate learning where this photo was actually taken. But if I am wrong, please tell me and your many other readers what direction the photo was taken, which mountains are shown and how it is this picture is possible. Many thanks…

Editor’s note: White Rock photographer Corry Kriticos was in Blackie Spit pointing her camera northward across Mud Bay, with a long lens that compressed the mountains.
