Neptune's Rage
Photograph by Joel Sartore

Sea-foam, sometimes several feet thick, often coats Clayoquot Sound, the product of fierce winter storms that can wield hurricane-force winds and 30-foot (10-meter) seas. Oddly enough, such storms have become the area's latest tourist attraction, with visitors filling seaside retreats in midwinter to drink in the ocean's fury.
