Black Tusk, Garibaldi Provincial Park


After a strenuous hike, gaining some 1200m of altitude from the parking lot at Rubble Creek, one is rewarded with this view of Black Tusk ­ the remnant of an old volcano. This picture was taken from the trail to Panorama Ridge.The alpine meadows were in full bloom, and the mosquitoes were a real nuisance, typical for the short summers in the Coast Mountains.

This photograph was made using a Nikon F5, a 24-120mm lens and Kodak Royal Gold ISO 100 film. The exposure data was not recorded. The negative was scanned at 4000 dpi with a Nikon Coolscan 2000 and the resulting image file was resized using Adobe Photoshop.
