Photographer's Note

A heavy mist rises from the north end of Pitt Polder below rugged mountains known as the Golden Ears. The landscape of the Fraser Valley has changed drastically over the last fifty years, with many of the quiet places of natural beauty destroyed to make room for subdivisions and shopping centres.

"There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream,
The earth, and every common sight.
To me did seem
Apparelled in celestial light,
The glory and the freshness of a dream.
It is not now as it hath been of yore -
Turn wherever I may,
By night or day,
The things which I have seen I now can see no more."

William Wordsworth
Intimations of Immortality...
