Flotsam In High Places

George Cousins

North Saanich,British Columbia, Canada

Artist's Description

When you think of flotsam and jetsam, what comes to mind? The seashore..coastlines,oceans,beaches..the normal places.
So it was a surprise when we arrived at Moraine Lake, in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada. The lake is one of the most famous in the Rocky Mountain park systems, and a long,long way from any seashore. Very high up, too! But here we found this scene of glacial lake, towering peaks, and a great array of logs which had accumulated at the end of the lake. Since this isn’t in a logging area, being in the heart of a huge National Park, we assumed they result from avalanches, rockslides, wind or ice storms. At any rate, they made an interesting variation to the usual photos we had seen of this beautiful lake.

Sept. 5, 2009, FUJI S100FS camera.
