Hoar Frost

The right mix of cold and moisture coats a forest of deciduous trees with hoar frost which makes the evergreens stand out. Shot with a Nikon F4 and an 80 to 200mm zoom lens.

In 1987 the Gatineau Boom Company conducted the last logging drive on the Gatineau River, ending a practise that had been in place for over a hundred years. Images 8 to 10 were shot at a point in the river called Cascades where the logs, that had floated south for over a hundred miles, were corralled in large booms which were then floated and towed to the Chelsea Dam 10 kilometers to the south before they were released. These images were shot on a Minolta SLR camera using Kodachrome transparency film.
