That image is a lovely abstract (for those of us who seldom venture below the surface of the ground.)

I spent an hour waiting for the snow to fall from the trees, but it didn't want to fall at the right place...

Great camera!  Didn't have them fancy thingamajigs in my day!  All seriousness aside though, I once saw a paper on seedlings where someone had taken the time to draw root structures - each one unique, all done in simple pen and ink.

Reminds me of the Madrone or Manzanita trees in California. Nice color.

Murmeltier -- I really like the composition of your Larches shot. And that you have included so many elements of the alpine without anything feeling diminished or overemphasized.

Thanks for the comment, the composition was facilitated if not forced by the location...

The tree looks very surreal. Cool shot.

Something a little different for me. From a H4D - 50 camera.

Fine example of that sort of treatment.

Last week Marcia and I went up to Cathedral Grove for the day.  This is an 11-image composite.  Being a rainforest, when the trees die and fall over they become fodder for new growth - first fungi, lichens and mosses, then those become the foundation for other plants, etc.  Such trees are known as 'nurse logs'.

Was walking through the local park the other day and heard someone casually whistling.  Took me a while to spot him, though.

I like your panorama a lot, Mike. I saw Cathedral Grove last spring on my one visit to Vancouver Island and it was quite spectacular. Not a drop of rain the whole time we were in the "rain forest," but I got lots of pretty good photos, but none as nice as your pano.

Thanks, Eric.  When I posted that message and had a look I thought it was quite ghastly and almost deleted the post.  Ah, the life of a highly-compressed image.  We had a good time that day and if I managed anything else worth looking at I'll put it up.

Mike.

P.S. If you want to see 'real' rainforest here on the south part of the island you can head to Carmanah-Walbran park, but it's a long drive down active logging roads, and this time of year you'd probably want to have a 4x4.  The Cathedral Grove walkways have been 'citified' for the tourists, but when we were there it was still early enough in the year that there weren't many people about.  Unfortunately most/all of the big Douglas fir trees there are suffering from a fungal infection and a heavy wind can bring a shower of branches.

If you head north up the island you could try a river rafting trip on the Nimpkish river.  Most of the big trees there have been clearcut, but much of the watershed is protected and there are two provincial parks in the area.

@Steven: I like this picture a lot. Could you tell us something about the making-of, please?
