The Fraser River and logging have a long history and it is still in evidence every day. The best, most sustainable use of our forests may not be in place yet. I strongly believe that hemp products are under utilized and I hope that they will be explored more in the near future. But governments and big business change at a glacial pace.
This shot is from an industrial area in east Vancouver that I visited recently. Shot with an eight minute exposure, the river carries a tranquility through even this hard working area.
While we are talking trees, and hard work, I read a great non-fiction book called "Eating Dirt" by local author, Charlotte Gill. If you have ever wanted to know what the life of a tree planter is like, give it a read.
