Possibly my favourite tree. Located on the highest summit of Stawamus Chief in Squamish, it always reminds me of a semi cascade style bonsai. At some time its top was likely lost to a storm but the rest remains well attached to the rocky surface. Nature seems to have done a fine job in perfecting its appearance without resorting to unnecessary wires or manipulation. However, at close to 9 feet in width and 3 feet in height, it would be a problem sitting the specimen on the dining room buffet.

Rings of Green
Cypress Mountain Ski Area was the venue for the Freestyle Skiing and Snowboarding events of the 2010 Winter Olympics. As a legacy I guess the green rings will remain forever.
Bad Hair Day

Upside Down & Backwards
A seating place finished with very shiny travertine tile and pretty blue handles outside a local bank. The reflection caught my eye as the light hit it just at the right angle as I passed by one day. Then when I uploaded the pic to my PC, I decided it was even better turned upside down.
