Log Booms on the Fraser River by Adele Oliver

Log Booms on the Fraser River

These big log booms are tied to pylons close to both shores of the Fraser River and are waiting to be towed by the powerful tugboats to their final destination. The logging industry is a big and important one in British Columbia.
I took this image in March.

I wish you all a great Sunday and thank you for your visits and comments.

Special thanks go to Canan Oner for proposing this image for the gallery and to all you kind voters - I am happy about my little star.

Die Wälder gehen dahin, aber als Vielleser kann ich mich da auch nicht exklusiv beschweren, Die Perspektive ist klasse!
Liebe Grüße, Ernst

So hat mans oft in Wildwestfilmen gesehen und das gibt es heute noch. Wirkt sehr nostalgisch und doch wie Natur pur!
greetings, Inge

Leo_nid, 7.11.2010 at 0:47h

superb shot with an excellent perspective and depth

Angelika El., 7.11.2010 at 1:08h

Diese Menge der Stämme ist sehr beeindruckend! Der Fluss ist ja sehr breit und so kommt es wohl nicht zu den gefährlichen Staus und Engpässen! Die Rinde schützt das Holz während seiner abenteuerlichen Reise ein wenig! Das Wasser wirkt so unbewegt, ein Wunder, dass sie ihren Weg finden!!!!

Hab ein schönes WE!

Deryck, 7.11.2010 at 7:09h

This is great Adele! Fantastic detail. Your dof works excellently for this shot keeping everything in focus and adding depth

Jürgen Cron, 7.11.2010 at 8:53h

vlg und einen schönen Sonntag Adele,

Vera Shulga, 7.11.2010 at 9:45h

Scene like in our rivers...

s. sabine krause, 7.11.2010 at 9:47h

a great "canadian feel" to this picture! and i like the composition a lot: with the three boats "crowding into the right-hand corner, facing the logs, it looks like a showdown – very suspenseful and dramatic! and the low viewpoint even adds to that mood! you must have been moving right among those logs – like a beaver ; )) – when taking this shot ; ))! hugs, sabine.

Andrea Sagawe, 7.11.2010 at 10:00h

This is a view I know from my childhood days, because I used to watch a series on TV which I think was called "Die Strandpiraten" or in English "The Beachcombers"
I loved it and your shot is a a kind of mind travel for me into my childhood days.
Wishing you a fine Sunday too


Werner R. Albert, 7.11.2010 at 10:08h

A lot of wood !

Great docu, Adele.

Alors la bravo, on ne voit pas cela tous les jours !

Dagmar Illing, 7.11.2010 at 13:52h

I have just read John Irvings latest novel "Last Night in Twisted River": This used to be a very, very dangerous business, but times have changed now.But at least it is still very important. Interesting capture!
Have a good Sunday too, Dagmar

Die Mohnblumen, 7.11.2010 at 14:33h

Klasse Adele!
Genau so habe ich auch Kanada im Kopf!
Womöglich durch irgendwelche Fernsehsendungen, von den Holzfällern.
Ein tolles Motiv.
Grüße Heike

Ilidio Fernandes, 7.11.2010 at 18:18h

Great shot , but a sad one ...cutting all those trees

Sally Dunn, 7.11.2010 at 18:23h

Interesting that they are stored on the water, here they are stacked up and stored on dry land. Great picture, there are a lot of them floating about!

Berthold Klammer, 7.11.2010 at 18:44h

Very good documentation.... the logging industry is very important and ... as I saw my trip through BC...strucking nature a lot. I hope that all keep in mind what we are doing.

Beside this ...congradulations to your star!!!!

Best Berthold

José Ramón Miguel, 12.11.2010 at 14:52h

Me gustan esas tradiciones madereras, el encuadre es genial con esos troncos flotando en el rio, lástima que nuestros rios no tengan estos caudales ni estos troncos.
Saludos. Ramón
