Morning mists in the mountains
Khutze inlet in the Great Bear Rain forest, northern BC. This is a common sight in the north temperate rainforest as the sun starts to burn off the morning mist from the deep canyons and fjords. But it is hard to capture the true beauty and three dimensionality of the scene with a camera. You really have to be there to see it in person.
This roadless wilderness is the largest tract of undisturbed north temperate rainforest in the world. and is the area that will be endangered by potential spills from oil tankers if the northern pipeline is built from the Alberta tar sands out to the coast near here.
A beautiful B/W version of a similar scene can be seen here, along with some shoreline images of the rich intertidal zone: http://goo.gl/W9Zsqx
Re SM vs Flickr vs FB. Now that SM appears to be 'fixed' I find myself in a quandary. During the downtimes on SM a couple members of our community, with the support of the rest of the community, have gone to a lot of trouble and research to set up alternate daily communities on Flickr and Facebook, and I appreciate and thank them for their efforts. Now there is the potential for the same images to appear on two or all three sites. So now I don't know whether to comment and/or post on SM or Flickr or Facebook. But I have too little spare time to follow two, let alone three, communities and keep track of which image I posted, and which I commented on, and where. What's a person to do? I guess if SM starts work properly, I will continue to post and comment here, with the occasional post and comment in Flickr, and will mostly ignore Facebook. What will you do?
