Wigwam River, Fernie: Phew, I am dog tired. I’m posting this from Auckland, New Zealand’s capital city and a world away from Fernie and the mountains of the Kootenays in British Columbia. This photograph will be the last one I take in Canada until next year. Luckily it’s also one of my favourite images from my last trip out to the Wigwam River. The snow-capped peaks in the background draw the eye in along the beautiful forest service road. Further back towards the Wigwam River, there was ample evidence of the fires that ripped through the area last month, which prompted the Fernie backcountry closure for a period. The trees were still smouldering in places and so was the road! Quite a surreal sight to see. This photograph would have been complete if the Larch to the left of the frame had peaked and turned yellow. Alas, it seemed that they waited until I left town to change their colours. Oh well, there is always next year. While I am no longer in Fernie I will still be sharing a lot of content from this wonderful town, numerous photo essays and photos of the week to follow, with a few bits of awesome Kiwi content thrown in for good measure. Photograph details: 1/100th sec, F8.0, ISO 100, 25mm, shot using an Olympus OM-D EM5.
