Forest Foothold by George Cousins

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. Steep cliffs of the Rocky Mountains, crevasses filled with the rubble and debris of avalanches and landslides through the ages, and yet the trees manage to gain a foothold, take root and gradually evolve into a forest.

September 4, 2009, Fuji S100FS camera.

    Wonderful capture George……like your description on this one and it really shows in this one !

  • Good evening Sean, and thank you..I always marvel at how even grass can take root on those rock slopes, but so amazing to see a forest creeping up. Especially the lone trees here and there away out on the rock debris!

    Excellent capture with fine detail and colour ……. Bravo …~!

  • Thanks very much Richard, greatly appreciated. Just reading your bio..I got into computers in 1969! Started a time-sharing company in Nova Scotia, the first in the area, and went on from there. Very long hours,no vacations and no time for photography, but wouldn’t have missed it! Cheers, George
