  • Description: The Burmis Tree is a limber pine located in south western Alberta along the Crowsnest Highway and east of municipality of Crowsnest Pass. The tree died in the late 1970s after losing its needles. Its age was estimated to be between 200 and 300 years old. In 1998, it was toppled by wind, however members of local community refused to leave it lying. Efforts were made to fix the tree back up using rods and brackets. In 2004, vandals cut one of the tree's main branches.

    Lovely composition of greenery and water motion, Alena. I especially like the textured waterfall curtain effect you have captured.

    Thank you kindly Laura! Getting ready to head out to try for the first time some "Astro/Night" photography there on the coast!) I really enjoyed the article here on O.P., and have been inspired...

    I agree very "dreamy"~ Made me think of the African Plains, hardly believed it was so close to the city!
