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.

    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

    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

    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!

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