The morning mist in the distant trees has the look of smoke coming from the barren ground. It’s sad to see the loss of habitat from logging on Vancouver Island. Big Tree Main, where this image was made, is home to some of the largest yellow cedars in the world including Admiral Broeren, the current champion. I worry for their survival. This shot was taken from the bed of my pickup truck to gain a higher angle on the scene.
