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.
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!!!!
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.
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
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
