More Green

6 bushI am still amazed at the green.  The weather has mostly been cool and dull with a few showers: one day we had a noisy thunderstorm and several short deluges – the first real rain of the year.

  1. Will be making more returns to Bella Coola to record more very high resolution Gigapan panoramas, particularly the immense cedar forests, such as those I captured in the Ancient Forest northwest of Mcbride, B C.
    Just type mcbride or cedar in the Gigapan search box to bring up some of the images. 🙂

  2. Perfect photos Chris. Simply love looking at familiar scenes. Did see several friends while in Wms. Lk., as they traveled thru’. Twas a tiring trip but so good in all ways. Hope new leg brace is good for you.
