trees

It’s fall and the Elk Valley is painted a shining golden hue. As cottonwood trees prepare for winter, they lose their green chlorophyll leaving only the yellow/orange “carotenoid” pigments behind. Just weeks ago, the dense canopy of these towering giants cast a deep shadow; a welcome respite from the summer heat.

It is an honour to be featured amongst the many talented Fernie artists who have graced this column.

Art is expressed through shades of individualism mixed with the spectrum of infinity, so really has no restrictive boundaries. Writing as an art form takes a lot of effort. Rolling off the edge of your mind, thoughts are difficult to correlate into something intelligible. This constructive act of composition can be most gratifying when it all comes together.
