[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Both Ling Lake and Mt. Ling which you see here are named after Frank and Stanley Ling, both of which lived in Chilliwack and gave their lives in WW2 as servicemen. Both Frank and Stanley served with the RCAF in bomber squadrons. Frank perished during a bombing run over Germany and Stanley perished on a training run at a Gunnery School.
A memorial wreath was tied to a tree by the lakein honour of them in 1985, but we could not find the wreath.
Fewer places in the area would be more honourable a location than this to be named after.

Hi Tim,

That is quite a family sacrifice and a fitting tribute to the brothers. How high up were you to have that much snow still on the ground in July? This is a nicely composed image.

Hello Tim,
great composition of landscape photo!
excellent pov with good sharpness, vivid colour and much details!
well composed and well seen
thanks for sharing and notes

Nice landscape shot with good pov and lovely colours.
well done

What a beautiful dedication! Thank you for that.

THis is yet another one of your amazing landscapes. Your work has a quality about it that I haven't figured out how to word yet but it's very appealing. Your colors are always so solid and tangible. :) Good stuff!

Hi Tim,
A great landscape!
I like so much the visual impact of this scene, with all that pines surrounding the lake.
The snow scattered all around adds variety with its whites.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Very unusual story, but also very Canadian in nature. Nice picture. Here in the US we tend to name man built objects after war veterans, not geographical or geologic entities. Those places seem reserve for naturalists and such. Very sharp picture. I come from a long line of Quakers who in some cases, died because they didn't go to war... a totally opposite way of thinking as per pictures... still snow up there eh? I have run on enough. Good composition.
