This picture isn't particularly great but it has sentimental value and may attract the sympathy vote. This was taken last year from my back yard. This year, there is a monster house there instead; the trees are gone <img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle>

Say, maybe that could be a photo of the month contest sometime. Photograph the most urbanized, most devastating impacts on Mother Nature...Nah, too depressing <img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle>

Fall colours are like fireworks. Lots of oohs and aahs.

[u]Myra Canyon Trees</u>
I took this exactly one year ago while in the Myra Canyon.
I shudder to think of the view there now, but I'm hopefull it will look like this again in a few years.


Here's the area it was photographed:

The top photo is my submission.

UBC Research Forest - October 1996

Don't worry, that's fog, not smoke from a forest fire.

Fantastic shot Cwall...! too bad about the sky over exposing, dynamic range is the single biggest problem for me too.

thanks Monster ! The Mt Frosty trail is spectacular. It's much narrower than the trail to Garibaldi Lake but graded about the same. You go through thick forest at first, and see views of the lakes below, then about 15 minutes after you've crossed Frosty campsite (keep walking, nothing to see there - one of the ugliest camping areas I've seen anywhere in BC) the trees open up and suddenly you are in the presence of larches.

2000+ year old larches. Imagine, they were already seedlings when the Roman empire was a superpower.

Before leaving, I briefly looked for photos of Mt Frosty, on Bivouac mostly, and my impression was that there was only a few larches near the summit of the twin peaks. Nothing could be further from the truth. The larch grove stretches over two kilometers. What a spectacular location. My hiking partner had flown over the area earlier in the week - on the way back from Ottawa - and was able to see the larches from his aircraft seat. The area is that large!

I snapped over 100 pictures, and ran out of space (!!), ended up with about 60 once I returned home and parsed through the foliage.

Thing is, yes, the light. And, I'm a novice photographer. Make that, ultra-novice digital camera user. A year from now, I'll be back on that mountain and use the correct F stop and the correct exposure - these were snapped with the camera making the decisions...

As for the larches, they lose their needles. The first big rain or big snow will create a deep yellow carpet on the ridges beneath the twin peaks of Frosty. So if you want to see them for yourself, go soon!

cheers ! C Wall

Just to add to C-Wall's narrative, I got a picture from a friend of mine today who was up there last Saturday. It really does look spectacular:



He also sent me a picture from our trip up Cheam. Just think, you could go up there this weekend and snag the camera and also snap the winning shot for photo of the month!



Note that neither of these are entries in the contest since I didn't take them but I figured you wouldn't mind me sharing them anyway.
