Haida Gwaii in Green
A dominant theme in Haida Gwaii is Green. Green seems to come in all shades, including yellows, especially when lit with morning and evening sun. Here is a selection of some of the greens I met in Haida Gwaii on my trip in June.

Tansy, one of the Quimper Hittys came along and has blogged about the trip from a doll’s view and you can find those posts here.
Canon 5Dii with Canon 50/1.4 Nikkor-N 24/2.8, SMC Takumar 100/4 Macro, SMC Takumar 200/4 (EXIF data in gallery correct for 50mm lens, but not for other adapted manual lenses).
Such richness of color. With all these beautiful sites, activities, and sea urchins (to eat), I can see why you’d work so hard at “vacation.” Great shots. The reflections at the site images are truly stunning.
It is a vacation when compared to a life of databases, spreadsheets and reports in a constrained little cubicle. Even including hauling dozens and dozens of 60lb buckets of dirt, two at a time, up a slippery beach. Because every now and then one looks up from the work, and sees this kind of thing.
Lovely sentiment. And I feel it completely.
The saturation of color in the green is wonderful; the landscape shots are just stunning.
Hi Lynn – glad you like them 🙂
Love the reflection photograph here, my friend… that’s really a stunning shot in this set…. but with that all being said, the entire series is just wonderful!!
Thanks Toad. I like that one and the first one best – they give a good feeling of the place. And in some ways the colours area a good soft foil for yesterday’s orange extravaganza.
