Photographer's Note

This is my 100th post on TE. I've looked at quite a few other photo sites on the net, and I think this is by far the friendliest, most contructive and most interesting site around. My thanks to Adam for creating the site and to all the many people I've come into contact with during my time here - you've made it a lot of fun!

The photo shows Cypress Falls, in West Vancouver. It's hard to believe that such a wild place can be located in the city, but it is. Even most Vancouver residents have never been to this park, on the lower slopes of Hollyburn Ridge. Cypress Falls Park has a narrow canyon, through which the river shoots at high speed. There are actually several falls on the river, the photo shows the largest one. There is more to the park than the river though; there are also huge trees and lush vegetation. The dense canopy of trees ensures this park is cool and moist even on hot sunny days.

This was shot on Fuji Velvia, with a shutter speed of 1/2 second. Scanned at 2000 x 3000 lines, and some small corrections for colour and contrast.
