Logging on Vancouver Island

March 2016 winner — Roger Casement

Title: Logging on Vancouver Island

Gear/Settings: Nikon D7100, 18-200mm lens shot at 50mm, ƒ16@1/20 sec., ISO 640, shot using a polarizer to saturate colour



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.

  1. Used to be a logger -A frame logging on the north coast – very low tech and very easy on the ground compared to road building and Truck Logging.
