[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is probably my favorite snag so far (as I'm always finding more in the area) since it's still standing and has most of it's branches. These alpine trees grow under the harshest of conditions with them receiving the brunt of the Pacific coastal storms that pound the Cascade Mtns most of the year. I've tried counting growth rings on these trees, but they grow so slowly that their rings are very difficult to count since they are so close together. This tree was hundreds of years old before age or some other fate caused it to die.
Coquihalla Mtn is in the background to the right. We're spending 4 nights in that area at the end of July.

I posted an image of the same snag back in October, but in different lighting

Also, Happy Canada Day to all Canadians!

Hello Tim,
Impressive vista. Pure nature.

Love how you've given this bleached-death look so much life. Wonderfull pics.

This is back to your naturally impressive and magnificent landscapes that look almost other-worldly. I know where Hope is at...and never did I think it looked like that. You have made some heavenly magic here...

PS Happy Canada Day to you as well

PERFECT COMPOSITION! Lovely! Great colors and lighting. Yeah - I like what Annick wrote: PURE NATURE!

Composition intéressante, presque extra-terrestre, le jeu des couleurs est très bien, peut-être un peu trop accentué sur mon écran.
