Fireweed [Chamerion angustifolium] is the Territorial flower of Canada’s Yukon and it is prevalent throughout the Southern half of the Territory. It grows in open areas and is usually the first vegetation to grow in an area that has been devastated by forest fires – thus its name. The pond, on the Southeast edge of Whitehorse in the Yukon, was the result of the damming of the Yukon River to tame the Whitehorse Rapids and provide power.1/90 f67 ISO100 Fuji S5Pro Nikon 17-55 @ 38mm

Played with photography since early High School. Since moving to the Yukon in 1997 I have become much more involved and am now comfortable in Photoshop although there is always more to learn. The Yukon is a great canvas and would recommend it for most everyone’s Bucket List
