The Most Photographed

When I think about it, there are many iconic visions of nature around the world that are photographed time and time again – Niagara Falls, the Grand Canyon, Death Valley being just a few examples. Well, in the Khutzeymateen here on the northern BC coast we have this young spruce tree growing on a fallen nurse log, washed up right in the middle of the estuary. This is probably the most photographed tree in the whole park. Everyone, myself included, seems impelled to photograph it whenever they pass by. I’ve seen it from all angles and in a variety of conditions, low tide, exceptionally high tide, emerging like an ethereal spirit through the mist and fog and glowing in bright golden, early morning sunshine, but no mater what the conditions when it catches your eye, you’ve just got to ‘grab that shot’.
