The living of course being the fireweed and the dead being the fallen snag. To the left of the snag in the distance is Yak Peak with the 4 lane Coquihalla Highway slicing it's way across it's base.

Hi Tim,
You are showing us a wonderful example between life and dead in nature and the title is very well shosen.
Excellent composition with the fallen dead tree leading the eye on to the lovely background with view on Yak Peak.
Beautiful color contrast and details.
Thnaks for sharing and the good note.
Have a nice Sunday,

Hi Tim,
I like the photos transition from foreground to BG subjects. I think the log could be a little more to the right corner as it seems abit empty. You got some nice details on the logs surface and the lighting is nice.

Hi Tim.

Very well choosen title and subject. Composition is superb. Beautiful color contrast and details.
TFS. Have a nice Sunday,

Hi Tim,
that motive is so romantic and wonderful.
I like the colours and the panorama, thanks

What wonderful focus and combination of color and landscape. The florals add a time dimensional depth to the scene. The mountains in rear bring in a note of caution. Very well then eh? Almost time for HOCKEY!


There are great foreground elements and sharpness in this image Tim. The sky and the mountain have an unusual dullness to them that I don't understand. I've driven that highway and it is nice to see the vistas I've missed.
